Please comment on the following exchange at a restaurant:

After being seated at our table, on occasion I may speak to a person at the adjacent table about their food, "Excuse me; that looks good; what is it?"

My wife will immediately say, out loud, " Don't bother those people."

Common sense NEW

I would say that's not generous. If someone curious to know what type of foods you're eating in a restaurant you should have tell them. I think that's normal.

I have never bothered another restaurant guest about what is on their plate. I have however quietly asked my waiter what the other guest ordered.

Being a hesitant person I would surely would not dare ask the neighbor about the food they are having. However, according to custom essays there are many people who would want to know about the neighbors are eating at a restaurant. This is because they become curious of the smell that is emitted by the recipe or simply because it looks delicious.

I don't think to bother NEW
by: Steve

I don't think to bother anyone who is sitting near your table and you asked him about his order. Being a student I know the ethics.

Ask Why NEW
by: Anonymous

I've always been told it's rude to comment on somebody else's food. But as this sounds like a complement, it's probably ok-ish. However, if it makes your dinner date (be she "only" your wife, she is your date and therefore your first priority) uncomfortable, I'd refrain. Ask her later WHY this makes her uncomfortable, in an effort to understand her better and to perhaps explain WHY you do ask.
