Can someone tell me exactly when bibs went out of style? There are so many pros to wearing a bib while eating. I used to see old farts tuck a napkin in their collars when I was but a wee lad, but I haven't seen anyone use a normal bib or napkin bib in maybe 15 years!
Be the change you want in the world.
>>16204351its inferior to the lap napkin.unless you are eating soup, and falter right as the train goes into the tunnel, you're going to get the food on your lap as it falls.
>>16204351I'm with you, I wish it was a cultural standard to tuck a bib when eating.
My old fart neighbor still does this.but nobody wears nice clothes that need dry-cleaning anymore so nobody is afraid of a food stain that will come out in the wash either.
>>16204367I hear you. I was eating breakfast this morning and spilled a big ass chunk of it on my freshly ironed shirt, and it really pissed me off. I'm bringing the travel bib back.
>>16204351imagine needing a bib because you dribble food like an infantimagine being unable to just lean over your plate because your gut is too big
>>16204372>>16204351Wrong. Only a slob doesn't neck tuck the napkin when eating splashy food. When I'm wearing my suit, you better believe I'm tucking the napkin into my collar. Who the fuck thinks putting a napkin on your lap will prevent the splash from soup, pasta or sauces? Putting a napkin on your lap in the wrong situation is lazy and uncultured. Shows you care more about showing off your gay T-shirt than keeping clean.
>>16204351In Korea they have bibs in their restaurants for customers.>>16204672Imagine eating like a dying old man because you're desperately trying to figure out the mathematical formula for sauce not to splatter.
>>16204672If you wearin a suit and you put a napkin on your lap when eating anything you're the real infant
>>16204672Sometimes accidents happen. A bib is nice to wear at events where your clothes can get jacked up. Too bad it makes you look like an uptight nerd.

>>16204375>walking around with stains on your clothesmaybe you don't care, but others do.
>>16204351Because most people can eat without making a mess. What are you OP, a fucking baby? lmao
>>16204763lmao people are far too up their own asses to care about yours.
>>16205583You do realize people are laughing at you behind your back, right? God, I bet you feel so embarrassed right now.
>>16204351i do this all the time and im 38
