I've Been Traumatized Once Again

What ever happened to good manners? They seem to be missing almost every place I go.
I went out to dinner tonight, was enjoying myself quite a bit when I spied her. The lady across from me was picking her teeth with one of those toothpick/dental floss doohickies. It wasn't just a simple little surreptitious ping with the pick. Oh no. Ms. Dental hygiene was shoving the floss part between her teeth, sawing vigorously and then flicking out particles. So disgusting but I couldn't stop watching her. It's like how your eyes are drawn to really gaggy things like roadkill, CSI, or staring at an unsightly wart on another person's face.

I kept looking. And she did not disappoint, no she did not. Saw, saw, saw flick. Saw, saw, saw flick. This went on for some time. When the bill came she let the toothpick/floss thing hang out of her mouth like a hillbilly chewing on a straw. It just dangled there for the waitress and the whole place to see. Hang, hang ,hang hang

I hate people

That is SO wrong.

No doubt it's more hygenic to do it straight after eating, and not wait for the bits to start rotting your teeth on the long drive home.

Ewwwwwwwwww. That is just nasty!


Big freakin whoop, Jean Knee. you need to butch up cause I seen much worse in my short young life.

Me and my man were chowing down at a Mexican restaurant a few years ago when I began hearing this familiar metallic clinking noise.....sure enough I look across the room and there's a family seated at a booth and the father has his foot up on the table clipping his toenails. I PROMISE you this is a true story! And the waiter just shrugged his shoulders when I pointed it out. We never went back.

Also? My dad was notorious for digging his credit card out and using it as a makeshift toothpick and then he'd engage in some serious teeth pickin action!
