小编摘要:在餐桌上如何传递食物?入座后想上洗手间怎么办?十二条餐桌礼仪让你摆脱多种尴尬。



1. When helping a woman pull her chair to the table, hold it and guide it as she does the same. Don’t shove it against the back of her legs.
帮女士拉椅子时,要掌握节奏,与女士步调一致。别让椅子碰到女生的后脚跟。

2. If you’re seated at a table with eight or fewer guests, wait for everyone to be served and for the hostess to begin eating before you dig in. At a long banquet table, it’s OK to start when several people are seated and served.
如果同桌的客人等于或少于八人,你要等到每个人入座及女主人开始动筷子后才能开吃。而在长的宴会桌上,只要有几个人已经坐下来或者上菜了,你就可以开吃了。

3. All things not having to do with food (and decoration) should remain off the table: keys, clutch bags, cigarette packs, sunglasses, BlackBerrys.
所有与食物(和装饰)无关的东西不要放在餐桌上:钥匙、手提包、烟盒、太阳镜和黑莓手机。

4. Don’t snap your napkin open or unfurl it showily like it’s an Olympic flag.
别迅速地打开餐巾纸,也别像展示奥运会会旗一样缓慢打开。

5. If you prefer not to have wine while dining out, don’t turn your glass upside down, and don’t make a big deal of saying you don’t drink. Simply place your fingertips on the rim of the glass and say “Not today, thanks.” This implies no judgment of those who wish to imbibe.
如果不想喝酒,不用特意把杯子倒置,也别大张旗鼓地说你不喝酒。只要把你的指尖放在杯子的边缘,然后说“不,今天不喝,谢谢”。这样就能让想喝酒的人明白你的意思。

6. Use your hand to shield your lemon as you squeeze it into your iced tea so you don’t inadvertently squirt your dining companion in the eye.
当你把柠檬汁挤到冰茶里时,用手护住柠檬,这样就不会不小心将这些汁溅到眼睛里。

7. If you’re eating and want to take a sip, dab your mouth with your napkin to avoid staining the rim of the glass.
在你吃东西的时候,如果你想小酌一下,先用纸巾把嘴擦干净,避免在杯子边缘留下残痕。

8. Grabbing a bowl of salad or a saltshaker as it’s being passed to someone who asked for it is the equivalent of cutting in line: greedy and rude.
硬是把递给别人的沙拉或者盐瓶拿过来,就算是和贪婪与粗鲁画上等号了。

9. On the subject of passing: Dishes go counterclockwise, but if someone to your left asks for something, you can hand it directly to him.
餐桌传递物品准则:逆时针传递。当然,如果你左手边的人要的话,你可以直接递给他。

10. When you excuse yourself to go to the restroom, just say “Please excuse me.”
如果你要去洗手间,只要说“失陪”即可。

11. When out with friends or family — even at a fancy restaurant — it’s OK to ask for your leftovers to be wrapped. But don ’t do it at a business lunch or dinner.
和亲朋好友外出就餐——即便是在高级餐厅——可以要求打包。但是千万不要在商务场合打包。

12. Should you text at the table at a social gathering? Farhad Manjoo on slate: “If you’re in a situation where you’d  excuse yourself to go to the bathroom, you should also excuse yourself before reaching for your phone.”  
你会在社交场合发短信吗?Farhad Manjoo说“如果你去洗手间需要打招呼的话,那么你在拿出手机的时候也要说不好意思啦。”
