    I live on that side of town, and always feel like I'm using one of my lives navigating it. You sort of accelerate and hope for the best, lol.

    I thought this was general restaurant/dining etiquette that everyone knew....but apparently not.

    What other things did you think that everyone knew and was stunned to find out heaps of people didn't?
    ...it's actually correct to put your knife and fork TOGETHER, SIDE BY SIDE when you are finished with a meal. If the cutlery is on the plate and NOT TOGETHER, as in on oposite sides of plate facing inwards... i would consider the person is still eating.

    I know exactly what you mean. It kind of reminds you what it is. Although I have seen vegan or maybe vegetarian jelly.

    That's what I was talking about.....When people have their knife and fork together side by side, and then get angry when you go to clear their plate....

    That's the best part! There's traffic lights on one of the entries to the roundabout to make sure they get a turn!!! And then traffic lights on the right hand lane (this monster has about 3 lanes mind you) to stop you, so said cars at the previous traffic lights can enter the roundabout.
