Hi, first time replier to the etiquette board! I haven't noticed that in a restaurant, but I have seen it in my church!!

For the one's who think their feet are clean... not if you are wearing flip flops!! No way feet are clean after walking around in flip flops or sandals all day! And how many times do we mindlessly touch the booth seat where we are sitting? Ewwww!!!!

Jilly, I am a new-guy here and personally think a range of views are needed. Please don't stop posting.
Also, another old saying is that, if you feel you need to impress your friends................change your friends..... wink
Take care guys.

Also, I have just reread my post and it sounds a little rude.
The changing your friends reference was to the "Black Sheep" comment, not to the original message.
Oh Dear, I'm off to a bad start.

I know this is an old subject but I wanted to chime in anyway. Jill, I agree that I find nothing wrong with elbows on the table. Here's my take: it depends where you are and what you do in certain restaurants. For example, here in Texas, there's a lot of sandles worn most of the year and when people are in restaurants that have outdoors eating areas, I see a lot of feet exposed. Its just the norm here. Also, they seem to wear a lot of fancy pajamas and houseslippers, but get this with socks. (smile)

So, it just depends I guess. I see some people pick their teeth with a toothpick and one time a person using it flicked a piece of food out. Now, what's the etiquette there? The restaurants give you toothpicks but you just might get flinged with some debree nearby from someone seated next to you. Hmmm.

I sometimes take off my shoes too. But, I do not put them up onto the seat...that's just rude! I do make sure that my feet are clean though! If I'm coming off a 5-mile hike on a warm day....better keep the shoes on!! laugh

Rainview, please remove blatant advertising links from your posts, or I will assume that your posts are for Spam purposes only.

Back to the original topic, since I started this thing and my second post seems to have been Ambien induced (judging by my spelling and the fact that I don't remember it!)...

I did mention in my first post that this was Macaroni Grill. Now I realize that this restaurant is not one of Zagat's 5 stars, but it is generally seen as a "nicer" restaurant to eat at. It is kind of like, we take the kids to Olive Garden, but Macaroni Grill is just for us as a couple.

So I'm not fussing about people slipping their flip-flops off at McDonald's. (Where there is a Playland, and kids take their shoes off anyway). This is where people come for business lunches, dates, evenings out, etc. I just didn't want to sit there with my husband on our one night out in like 6 months, and have to smell that girl's feet!! Not an appetizing beginner for my meal.

Oh and Rosie, I think when Lisa mentioned Bob going into the kitchen to take pictures - it was as his job being a reporter. I'm pretty sure Lisa said that they do reviews on restaurants. So she wasn't just saying he could wander in with his Sanyo and click off a few pictures. wink
