Okay.. here's a general sort of question for everyone. I'm sure you've all met and probably have friends who are totally non-chowhound-ish.. how do you deal with them when you go out or try to make a meal?
eg: this girl I know when trying sushi, picked up a piece, dipped it in the soy, and placed it in her mouth and spit it out when she tried to chew because 'the rice wasn't hot' (nevermind the fact that she didn't notice that when she picked it up)
Or someone that prefers 'americanized' chinese food - the stuff you find in those nasty mall foodcourts and stuff and won't touch anything that looks 'authentic'..
Am I just being too picky, or do these people drive anyone else nuts?? :) It's not a big deal to me, except when we try to go out for food together!
