I just had some noodles and was curious that's all. I only know two other people who can.

It's not difficult. If given the choice, I would rather use a fork or spoon, but that is because I have always used those.

Whatever utensil you feel comfortable with.

Define "eat with".

I just use 'em to shovel food into my mouth, while having the bowl slightly tipped and connected to my mouth.

I do prefer the standard issue fingers, though.

i used to work in an asian restaurant and ate there all the time, at one point i found it easier to eat with chopsticks than with a fork or spoon...

I can use chopsticks, but I usually dont. We don't have any in our house, so i only use them at restaurants.

Am I the only one, or do any of you other white guys ever go to a restaurant, and the waiter assumes you can't use chopsticks? This happens to me all the time, even at places I go to often.

Sort of like how everyone assumes white guys can't dance, right?

Can't blame them, really.

No point in using a dancing monkey and strong bad there, Jim.

I said they are not to be blamed.

When i was 10 I asked for chopsticks at this asian resturaunt and the waitress looked at me like "Awww... the cute little boy" look. Like "this will be funny". Then I showed her up by whippin those bad sticks up to my mouth and shoveled it in. I have been able to use em, since i popped out of the womb.

Yes, I can use chopsticks rather well. It's one of the things I picked up when I was living in Hong Kong.

Yes, yes I can in fact. I eat chinese food alot. Next to Sea food it's the best thing there is to eat. And whenever I goto a Chinese restaraunt I ask for chop sticks, it feels more.......right to eat chinese food that way.

Yes, I can use them pretty well, but's thats cause I'm Asian (born in China).

I am the best with chopsticks. One time, I was in a chineese restuarant, and a native Chineeese complimented me on how well I use chopsticks.

I am not Asian though.

I haven't really tried them but I did try to use them for big pieces of pork. I stabbed it to pick it up. I think that doesn't count.:o

Yeah I can eat with chopstick... Takes an awful lot of time though, so my food gets cold easily :( So I rather eat with fork and knife :D

I'm actually very good with chopsticks. My husband and I used to visit a particular chinese restaurant quite a lot (great dim sum and duck with pancakes), and the waiters knew us by name. I LOVE Chinese food.

No he won't.

This isn't spam, and you aren't bothered by it anyway.

I've been a moderator for 5 months now.

I can't be funny all the god damn time, and I recall you were once the guy who got all judgmental when it came to spamming.

Once again, a No would have been adequate.

I honestly can't see why we have all these silly rules for spamming. Let people write how they want, as long as they aren't bothering anyone.

thanx for that, c'jais:D ...i'm always getting yelled at for stuff...even if it was only a mistake :mad:

Anyway, my school once gave out chopsticks to everyone at lunch...I tried it out, but the sticks only wiggled and fell to the ground (sigh) :(

It's not the easiest thing I've ever done, but I have done it before. Just to be odd, try it with soup.:p I assure you, it won't work well, but you sure get some odd stares.:laughing:

Last time I was in a Chinese Restaurant I had a go with the chopsticks. The waiter gave me a fork. I didn't ask for one, based upon my performance with the chopsticks, he decided I needed it. Never have I been so embarrased in a restuarant. Except the time I dropped a plate, haha.
