Do be careful how you criticize someone's manners

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As this story out of Worcester, Mass. indicates, criticizing the poor table manners of one of your relatives could get you hurt quite badly.

A man was charged with stabbing two relatives after they allegedly criticized his table manners during Thanksgiving dinner. Police said the fight broke out Thursday when Gonzalo Ocasio, 49, and his 18-year-old son, Gonzalo Jr., reprimanded Frank Palacious for picking at the turkey with his fingers, instead of slicing off pieces with a knife.

I can think of few things as disagreeable as sharing a table with someone whose manners leave something to be desired, but I think I would simply not invite them again rather than risk blood splashes on my own impeccable attire by stabbing them.

Absolutely Vb, your immaculate attire is the last thing you should wear when stabbing someone. Forget boilersuits etc, the best thing is the cheapest jeans and cotton shirt you can find, as the fibres are almost universal, making life very difficult for forensics, or so I was advised by a scenes of crime officer.

"The test of good manners is to be patient with bad ones" --Gabirol (c.1022-c.1070). I only wish that I could comfortably practice what I preach.
