A killer hangover has left me in on a Friday night, watching TV.

I just noticed that in American TV programmes they seem to use their right hand for forks, and left hands for knives.

Yeah, exciting stuff

It doesn't depend on your dominant hand?

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Apparently not. I just mentioned this to my friend who claims to be right handed but uses her right hand for her fork. It seems to be the norm in American shows, however.

I just realised on American military uniforms the flag is always a mirror image of the actual flag as well.

I eat left handed with a fork and knife, right handed with a spoon and just a fork.

I'm american and I use my left hand for fork and right for knife when I'm cutting but when I go to put it in my mouth I switch the fork to my right hand.

I learned that Americans do this. I'm disgusted to share a continent with you barbarians.

I'm American, right handed, and I use the knife in right hand... pretty sure the knife goes in the dominant hand.

No, it faces that way because it is supposed to show that the flag is blowing in the wind as you are moving forward.

I'm right handed and hold my fork in my right hand. The other (proper) way doesn't make sense; you need to be more precise with your fork than your knife in pretty much every circumstance.

Well I didn't know that. But it is still pretty much a mirror image isn't it?

How precise do you need to be to hit your own mouth? The precision and strength is needed in cutting.

I use my right hand for a fork. Unless I'm at a restaurant, I don't even use knives. I usually just pick up the meat and shove it in my mouth.

I use my knife in my dominant, right, hand and fork in my non-dominant. I keep the fork in my left.

Pretty much this. Most food doesn't need to be cut anyway, just some idiot deemed it etiquette

Nothing worth eating requires any effort or precision to cut, whereas many things require some kind of dexterity with your fork (rice, peas, corn etc)

Fork with left and knife with right, any other way and you should be euthanised.

#24
I'm right handed. Fork in right, knife in left.
I don't see why people have it the other way around, then switch over. If you're going to be putting the food in your mouth with your right hand, you may as well learn to cut with your left and avoid some inconvenience.
#25
This is so weird... I was taught to set a table when I was young - forks go on the left of the plate, knives go on the right. I never imagined anyone would do it otherwise, even my left-handed mother eats that way.

I eat with a fork in my right hand. I'm right handed, and not American.


How do you explain that?


EDIT: Another odd thing about me: I never use spoons. I hate them. I also don't eat soup. If they put it in a mug, then fine. But in a bowl? **** off. And I eat cereal straight from the bowl, by putting my mouth on the edge.


I dislike the act of eating, but enjoy the taste and satisfaction.

I use the side of the fork as a knife if no one gives me a knife because I have a bad habit of accidentally dropping knives on my feet.

What's weird about that? That's how I use a knife and fork, though I am a southpaw for stuff like that.

In reality the image on the TV is probably inverted.

If I'm not in a classy restaurant, I just use the knife in my right hand and eat the meat off of the knife.




EDIT: I hold the fork in the left.

You're all barbarians and I hope your mothers aren't alive to hear of your poor manners. Also, to ^ how do you cut the meat without a fork? Surely it needs to be held in place in order to be efficiently and precisely cut.

I can't remember how I hold my utensils now that I'm thinking about it.
I think I hold my fork in my right and knife in my left even though I set the table with my fork on the left and knife on the right.

It's got nothing to do with nationality. Typically fork or spoon always goes in the dominant hand. But people can do what they want because it doesn't matter at all.

I'm lefthanded, use fork and spoon with my left hand and knife with my right, not that anyone cares. But if I'm stabbing someone, I use my left hand. For extra strength and deeper lacerations.
