In the US do you eat with the fork in your right hand?
It's just something I noticed whilst watching TV

I've always been taught to put the fork in the left.
Whenever I go to a restaurant, the fork is on the left.
I just find it peculiar.

i don't know what the **** is wrong with our country. it's supposed to be 'proper' etiquette to cut with the knife in the right hand, then CHANGE HANDS and stick the food in your mouth with your right hand.

i just cut with the right, fork with the left. none of that hand changing nonsense, as if we're so uncoordinated, we can't even get a piece of meat into our mouths with our left hand.

If there's a sign on the side of the road with an arrow pointing to a cliff, are you going to drive down the cliff?

It's not because the fork is on the left that you need to eat with your left hand...
#10
I do fork in right, and I switch to cut stuff with a knife

I use fork on the left and knife on the right. Right hand cuts through steaks better.

Sometimes I can't be bothered and use my utensils the other way around, it doesn't bother me much.
#15
Meh, In all honesty I've never seen someone in Britain use a fork in their right hand, nobody above the age of 7 or so anyway.
I've only seen it on American TV shows.

It depends what I'm eating, I usually just use a fork with my right hand and if I need to cut I just mash it with the side of the fork. If I am using a knife, however, I usually cut with my right hand and eat with my left, whatever takes the most effort I use my dominant hand for. I'm eating, it doesn't need to be difficult.

People who aren't proles or plebs or of the unwashed masses eat with a fork in their left hand and a knife in their right. Exceptions can be made in the case of some ethnic cuisine, and when you're eating pasta.

I developed a thought experiment to explain why you can't remember anything before you were born:

Right hand: Knife
left hand: Fork

You know, when you, like, you grab a woman's breast and it's... and you feel it and... it feels like a bag of sand when you're touching it.

Honestly, I switch depending on where the food is.

I dunno why but I don't like moving the plate unless I have to.

I think the constitution gives us the freedom to use either hand to grip our forks.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
