Chances are you live a stone’s throw away from a Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, and you’ve got a go-to local favorite for pad thai. These days I often find myself traveling north of Berkeley, where there’s quite a few wonderful Thai eateries clustered in Albany, El Cerrito and San Pablo locales.
I’ve served dinner to thousands of people over the span of my adult life. In that time, I have been alarmed– though seldom to the point of fits– by the number of those people who do not know how to behave at table. Proper table etiquette is often poorly executed.
