Though some of the rules of good manners change, others remain constant. Etiquette and Dining: covers most table manners you will need to feel comfortable in all situations. Many will judge you based on your table manners alone. That's not too surprising when you consider that we use all of our manners at the table-courtesy, consideration and respect. Thus, it does seem prudent to possess the very best table manners possible.
