THERE AWTAABEA LAW! BY LINDA LANDRY (c)
We have rules for everything from grammar and spelling to traffic and behavior. The Internet is becoming 'ruled' as well. You become a SPA'MMER if you solicit your wares without permission. You are YELLING if you use capital letters to send your message and you are rude and inconsiderate if you expose your email list to everyone in your mailbox when you forward a little ditty or two.
Now I am convinced that everyone also had rules at the dinner table. Your Mom taught you etiquette! She told you to wash your hands before dinner. Didn't she tell you to keep your elbows off the table and put your napkin on your lap and not to talk with food in your mouth? My Mom was not a socialite or Miss Manners by any means but these table RULES were taught early on. The first and most important one in my book was not to blow your nose at the table. It sounds so disgusting; why would anyone do so anyway?
Restaurants have rules. Some don't take checks. Some post signs on the door: No shirt; No shoes; No Service. There are NO Smoking ordinances they adhere to. Why on earth don't they have a rule that says "DO NOT BLOW YOUR NOSE AT THE TABLE"? I think that should be a rule to enforce at the dinner table by the proprietor! What makes a person at the next table or even several tables over decide to BLOW THEIR NOSE while other patrons are eating is beyond me. Didn't their mother teach them anything? Doesn't the restaurant owner care about the appetite of others? I guess not or there would be a rule or a law. Blowing your nose at the dinner table seems far more offensive to me than typing in capital letters!
