Taking selfies and talking sex spoils dinner with friends – research

As against popular notion, gluttony and loudness are not the prime dinner spoilers, rather taking a selfie and bringing up sex talk – according to a recent study – are the real spoilers of dinner with friends.

The research looked into the dining habits of 2,000 Britons and it highlights the things people find most infuriating on the dinner table.

According to Diana Mather, etiquette expert and author, checking one’s phone during dinner is the equivalent to placing the elbow on the table. She said, ‘Though it’s surprising people are becoming less concerned with the eating habits of fellow diners, the fact they don’t like to be ignored shows our social values haven’t changed that much.’
