I too never wear shoes except when I have to be in public and then I wear flip flops, even in winter if I can get away with it. I have no problem with elbows on tables, talking with food in the mouth or bare feet at the table because I NEVER eat out.
I have seen what sometimes goes on in kitchens and to food. It can be dropped on the floor and put back on plates, people spitting in it after it had been returned with a complaint then sent back out. Nasty things, nasty people!
As for cutlery and crockery well, unless I know I have washed and rinsed it, I don't eat off of it!
Sounds a bit OCD but I am not, just particular about my food and how it is cooked and presented.
I also save a fortune and I am also a black sheep!
