Table manners are not a frum thing to have

I was dating a girl a while back who told me that I chewed with my mouth open, “so what everyone chews with their mouth open” was my response and then to prove my point I observed people closely at restaurants and on shabbos – sure enough 90% of them chewed with their mouths opened. I failed to realize that all of those observed happened to be frum people and that until this girl pointed out this grave table manner passe, I had no idea that it was bad table manners in the first place.

Luckily for me, my poor table manners are a direct result of growing up without a mother in a frum environment, I was raised by men who were stuck in a Boro Park of 1947, where their mothers went to the shochet to pick out which chicken they wanted killed for shabbos.
