Friends who just don't understand communal dining

qtxniki | Dec 12, 2006 07:42 PM

Anyone else have a problem with friends who just don't "get" ethnic communal dining? They each order a plate which is "theirs". How do you explain to them that is not how it is done, without lecturing?

I've been to chinese restaurants with a large group, and end up having 7 same fried rices at the table. Most of it ends up getting dumped, because who can eat a whole plate of it? That money could have been pooled for SUCH a better meal. It's so sad...
