can you share some?

A friend posted this on FB the other day. But I had it a different way, I guess it differs based on which part of the world you live! how do you set your knife and fork esp. when you finish a meal?

I worked in a four star restaurant for a year and I can't remember anything about mise en place, though it's different settings for each meal. I do know that it's considered rude to take away someone's plate if they've finished before the other person has.

If you drop your silverware on the floor don't pick it up.  If you eat continental style and american style of eating.

Umm.. interesting. In Holland it is a bit different. Placing your fork and knife on the plate at an angle means you are done. On the sides not on plate means you are not finished yet.

I'm not fancy.  My silverware rest wherever it falls as long as the handles aren't in the food.

Guests should not start eating until the hostess signal to begin.  IMO, Do Not Like is offensive, it is one that I would never use.

Exactly.  I thought a plate of unfinished food is enough of a signal that the food was gross.

Personally I would onyl use pause and finished

things I can think of are

- not eating with elbows on the table lol
- place the napkin on your lap after being seated and don't be scurred if the waiter places the napkin for you
- after dinner, gather it, clean side up, beside your plate
- not using the napkin like it's a wash rag
- excuse yourself from the table
- anything you'd do in the bathroon, don't do at the table, clean teeth, blow nose, burp, etc
- some people use both knives and forks at all times, when eating
- pass food in one direction, usually to the right
- when the table setting is complex, chose from the outside in except for the glasses which are usually inside out
- offer the last of food to others before finishing it
