Wife and I were sitting in a very nice local Italian restaurant for an early dinner one day. Seated at the next table was a young couple with two kids running around the our table making a racket. Parents said nothing. I looked up to see if the father was going to say anything and noticed he had speared what looked like a large piece of breaded veal or chicken (about 6” in diameter) and started to eat it off the fork going around the perimeter of the veal like a six year old might do. I figured then there was no hope of having a peaceful meal.
My wife and I with another couple were in Ottawa , eating in a great pizza place. Seated in the next booth was a Muslim family , dad and 3 kids, , the mother dressed in a burka. She picked up a piece of pizza, then somewhere, just above her waist , flipped open her burka and in and then up went the pizza. She ate it with the burka in place . Three pieces of pizza , then she used a napkin to clean up under there.
We laughed about it later but at the time , everyone else stopped eating to watch.
