Have Good Manners When You Eat
An Unassisted Expository Text; planned, written and typed in one Writers Workshop (80 minutes) by MV
As you might already know, most people eat with good manners. They use their fork, spoon, and knife to eat. They use a napkin to wipe their hands etc. But why do they use good manners? Because its polite.
People that do not use good manners to eat will make people think how not educated you are. For example, if you were having lunch with your friends, and then all of a sudden you start grabbing the food out of your plate and stuffing it in your mouth, you will see that the look of your friend’s faces will look surprised. Because they will then think that you were not educated well. Even if you say that you are, by the look of your behavior it shows that are not.
Also if you do not use good manners, some people will not invite you to parties or for dinner outside at a restaurant. The person that invited everybody (including you) would be so embarrassed. With all the people around him that also got invited. Some people might even leave and never invite you to party again.
But as you know everyone who doesn’t eat with good manners can improve. Just eat with your utensils (fork, spoon and knife) wipe your mouth with a napkin and say “excuse me” if you burp by mistake. Also do not forget to say “please” if you want someone to get something for you and say “thank you” when someone gives you it. I even have a brother that sometimes uses bad manners but he will eventually improve.
Now that you know that you have to use good manners. You also know some of the things you gave to do in order to have good manners. Start using good manners. I know want you to remember that anyone can improve if they just try.
