People always comment on my neat eating haha. I always eat with a fork and knife, never my hands. Maybe that's why!

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.

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.

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. :)

I always try to eat neatly but I'm not a freak about it.

Sometimes, you just can't help it, like when eating wings or ribs. But normally I try to eat politely.

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.

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.

I'm just not as careful at home......but, I'm very relaxed at home. It's good to be messy sometimes. ha!

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!

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.

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.

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.
