    I also was taught these things as a child, however as an adult I witness impolite behaviour both in adults and their unruly children. Men who think opening a hotel door to a perfect stranger in their underwear is acceptable. Hotels provide robes for a reason but some people seem not to understand the garments use. Unknown children who approach my table in cafes and restaurants. I now choose very carefully where I am going and if I see hotel staff going to someone's room I do not pass that door at the same time. Some sights should not be seen by anyone.

    If I went to breakfast buffet I never pile up my plates, but I can go 5 rounds if I'm hungry since I'm a breakfast person 😂 Parents should taught their children to behave in formal public environtment or keeping an eye of them in public places if they're still too young to learn etiquette

    Hi, you can disagree, but I think people should stop taking their kids to buffets or any sort of restaurant for that matter, just to put a phone in front of them and play the most idiotic cartoons for all the room to hear. It ruins everyone’s morning , not to mention the fact that it actually damages your kid’s brain development just because as a parent you’re too lazy to talk to your child.

    Anna, as a lover of hotel breakfasts, does it make sense to eat the hot food after the cold food when it's been delivered? By that time, the "hot food" will become "cold food"! If you're at a buffet, on the other hand, it makes sense to eat the cold foods first, on your first "pass through," and then getting an omelette or whatever....

    I’ve been very intentional to teach my children proper etiquette. Even if you can’t afford to stay at a fancy hotel, you can usually book a reservation for breakfast. We have a local hotel that creates a walk-through holiday display which creates a reason to visit without staying.

    When I go to five stars hotels I can not eat the majority things they have in the buffet. I am vegan, that means: I do not eat anything with eggs, milk, margarine, etc. I do not eat any animal derivate food. So, I end drinking a cup of tea and eating some fruit.

    I was on holiday staying in a 5 Star hotel in Bali, sitting at the table enjoying a modest selection from the breakfast buffet when a family from a certain country that have no respect for personal space or noise levels in public came and sat a few tables away from me. They proceeded to sit their bad-mannered children down, put a phone/tablet in front of each of them, turned up at highest volume to watch some obnoxious sounding show, while they went back and forth and back and forth to the buffet tables bringing back plate after plate after plate piled precariously high with food. They were so noisy and made such a bad scene with their rude energy, it really ruined my meal. I ended up leaving the breakfast room early, feeling unsatisfied and grumpy at their intrusion into what had been a pleasant breakfast in a nice room with a beautiful view of the ocean.

    I’ll tell you what I discovered from eating at buffets. The bigger the variety, the smaller your servings should be if you really want to taste everything. You learn through trial and error until you find something that works. You can get a bite of everything without overheating and still get to taste everything if you know how to do it. I know how to do it because I’ve done it and have gained experience. The bigger the variety, the smaller the serving of every food should be. Let’s say you have about 30 different foods and you want to try everything. If you want to taste everything without getting toofull, just get a small bite of everything so that you can taste everything As for the coughing, you’re right about not coughing around the food, I hear you! Sometimes asthmatics may simply need their inhaler for post pertussis cough variant asthma. Cough variant asthma has two types of coughs, wet and dry. It’s the dry ones you really have to watch out for, but the wet ones are just about as bad. The wet ones, you may or may not not want to take the inhaler. That’s because you should be focused on clearing your airway. For the dry cough, you’ll definitely need your inhaler

    The order of the food intake does have nothing to do with elegance. You can start with a small croissant or pain de chocolate (which should be the inly carbs if possible) and cappuccino, and then work yourself though cold cuts, cheese and later hot food. Coffee drinks AND Champagne go with every course - and should never be skipped.
