Chinese Takeout



You order a few dishes for takeout, and then when you get home, you find quite a few extras. Sometimes there are more extras than there is food that you ordered! I call BS on this video -my local Chinese restaurant never includes chopsticks. Of course, that may be a regional thing. I would not doubt that fewer Kentuckians use chopsticks than people in other states.  (via Viral Viral Videos)

Here in upstate New York the Chinese take out places almost always include chopsticks. We have to remember to tell them not to give us any.

Interesting tidbit. My children are Korean, my wife and I are not. At the Chinese take-out we usually go to, they never give us chopsticks when my wife or I go in to pick up the food. When my son or daughter go in, they always put chopsticks in the bag. None of us can actually use chopsticks.

We used to each at a restaurant in Philly Chinatown two or three times a month and they always gave us chopsticks but we rarely got takeout. The one I get takeout from now in the burbs doesn't but will if you ask for them
I stress if YOU ask for them, because the one time I asked when a friend was coming over to eat, The woman said, "what are you crazy, use a fork", while handing me a plastic fork. I've been going there a long time and good friends.

I can confirm that most Chinese restaurants in Seattle always put chopsticks in your take-out.

We never ask for chopsticks because we have plenty at home, bigger, sturdier chopsticks.

Kolo Jezdec, it would take you about five minutes to learn.
