They are so hard to get out. aimeeb 6 years I do my best not to be. soapbox 6 years People always comment on my neat eating haha. I always eat with a fork and knife, never my hands. Maybe that's why! tlsgirl 6 years I just have to add that my mom says I used to wear more food than I ate, so I wasn't always a neat person. ilanac13 6 years i'm a pretty clean eater. i hate making a mess and crumbs just aren't my friend! Spectra 6 years I TRY to eat neatly, but I inherited my dad's penchant for managing to spill food on myself no matter what I'm eating. I always have to arm myself with at least two napkins when I eat so I can wipe up spills as soon as possible. Also, I don't wear a lot of white clothing because I know I'd probably manage to stain it relatively quickly, LOL. GlowingMoon 6 years No. I don't like to be dropping food on my clothes, and getting food on my long hair. I like my clothes and hair, so I try to eat neatly to keep them safe. :) tsp 6 years i can't neatly eat a burrito to save my life. bluebellknoll 6 years I always try to eat neatly but I'm not a freak about it. tlsgirl 6 years Sometimes, you just can't help it, like when eating wings or ribs. But normally I try to eat politely. sunshinepointe 6 years If I'm in public I'm one of those "I'll eat a burger with a fork and knife" types. At home it's every man for themselves. Brandi13jrm 6 years Well sure, wings, ribs, most kinds of barbecue are messy and are supposed to be. Though if something requires a fork, well then I'm not as messy... because I'm using a fork. Duh. LilyBiscuit7 6 years I'm just not as careful at home......but, I'm very relaxed at home. It's good to be messy sometimes. ha! khameel 6 years I try really hard to be neat, but I can't help but make a mess when eating bread at a restaurant. I ALWAYS get tons of crumbs on the table! laellavita 6 years The one food I am really messy about eating is a bean-and-cheese burrito. I flip it so it's seam side up, open it, load it with sour cream, salsa, lettuce, and guacamole, mix it all together, and then use tortilla chips like a spoon. It's a calorie bomb so I hardly do it but that's my favorite way to eat those things. shoneyjoe 6 years I usually try to be neat. I'l pick at an overstuffed döner kebab with a fork to make sure it doesn't go all over the place. I love having toothpicks in sandwiches to make sure they don't slide, and I've even used a napkin during a hot wings eating competition. Which is not to say that I always succeed at neatness. I do try, though. starangel82 6 years Depends. If I'm eating ribs or something like that, then yeah, I'm pretty messy. Or if I'm wearing something I don't want to get messy, I'll usually jinx myself and get it messy. Sigh. Otherwise, I'm a pretty neat eater. tyffi 6 years *No, not now. Gee, I wish we could edit the comments. tyffi 6 years Now, I'm not. My parents raised me well... But I can't eat Döner without looking like a pig afterwards. *lol* Sun_Sun 6 years usually i am not a messy eater. but there are some foods you just cant avoid making a mess!!! suziryder 6 years Yeah, I totally can be. And that eggie sammich looks soooo good, by the way! :P SusanTeufel 6 years I eat too slow to be messy, really. Everyone is forever waiting on me. Seka21 6 years No.. and i dont like that the option for no talks about 'poise'.. i dont conciously try to be non-messy.. its just natural for me ELLEHUDSON 6 years hey staff! idk where else to go to ask this type of question (didn't look too hard), but how can we get more recipes on this website?! it's a food site!
