Im watching the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner on CSPAN, OMG no one has table manners. Everyones chewing with their mouths open and

talking and chewing at the same time. Blowing their noses at the table!



Do table manners no longer count in the millenials?


BTW this is the menu..


Salad Course: Poached Bosc Pear with St. Pete’s Bay Blue Cheese, Petite Salad of Wild Red Watercress, Candied Pecans and Dried Cranberries, Port Vinaigrette

Entrée: Hand cut Broiled Petite Filet of Beef Served with a Four Day Demi, Onion Brulee Crostini Paired with Herbed Crab Cake on White Corn Fondue, Seasonal Vegetables to include Asparagus, Carrot, Sunburst, Roasted Pepper

Dessert: Tapas display of assorted desserts to include: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Assorted Mousse Lollipops, Lime Glace, Chocolate Pyramid glazed in crunchy peanut cocoa butter glaze


The people at the Washington Post dont know what the 4 day Demi Glace is.lol



Wawa Sizzli FTW!

Manners are disappearing fast.  We have become a nation of barbarians.


I'm always disappointed at the table manners of younger colleagues (I'm not that old)
