"Don't eat like a barbarian" reminds me of something my son did in college. He was a Finance major and one of the things they taught the students was how to go on an interview, specifically a dinner interview. They had to wear suits and ties and went to a fancy ballroom on campus. They were served a formal meal and were taught which silverware to use, how to conduct themselves and other 'rules' like don't get drunk (duh!), don't order an alcoholic drink unless the interviewer does, don't drink more than the interviewer and other rules of proper dining such as when to send the fork off with the plate and when to keep the fork, etc. They were also told to not discuss certain subjects, etc. I thought it was a great idea. So many young people don't have any clue how to eat a 'proper' meal. My son kind of liked the lesson.
