What Fork To Use?

July 11, 2007

in Non-Stories

Hey Dev,

My partner and I have a disagreement and a bet riding on the outcome. He says etiquette dictates that the fork closest to the plate is the one to use first; I think it’s the one farthest out. What say you?

Dear Jack,

You win the bet.  Even in Hell, etiquette dictates that you work from the outside in towards the plate; the fork farthest away is the one to use first. I hope that you had a dinner riding on the bet. And if it happens to turn into a disaster, send us the story so we can publish it on the Dinner Stories page!
