I'll keep that in mind the next time I watch someone shovel rice into their piehole at light speed with the bowl a 1/2 inch from their mouth.

EDIT: I was really just looking for an excuse to say "piehole" :P

I agree. Eating at our favorite Japanese restaurant is a real treat for me, and I always use chopsticks when there. The whole experience, including the food, the service, the atmosphere, and using chopsticks, is a treat for me.

I sure do. As a child I was the only one that would use them when we ate chinese. I hadn't used them in forever till about 6 months ago when we went out and I saw a pair offered at the chinese place. I love them and would love to buy a really nice pair.

Yes I do!
Been using them since I was 16 and got my drivers license.
Eating at a oriental restraunt was an affordable date night for my minimum wage pocket

I love using them, but today, I was chopstick challenged. I could not use a chopstick to save my life today! It was those big fat plastic ones.

Smile Can use chopsticks

I learned to use chopsticks while in Japan. I prefer to eat Asian foods with chopsticks.

Yep! I know how to use them. I have acquired quite a modest collection of them too, now on display in my main dining room -- from standard Chinese to Mongolian to the tall cooking chopsticks.
