Did not quite agree with a couple of your answers.

I can't believe how many I missed. Some of the answers were crazy! Example: How do you keep your mouth shut whilst speaking?

Whoever wrote this quiz is clueless and has no idea how to interface in polite society.

I don't think 'roll your eyes' ..or 'complain among yourselves then lie to the waiter' is a part of any etiqitte.

This apparently was proper in the early 1900's...and abroad, not inthe US!

This was stupid. First off if you only tipped 10 percent in the U.S, the waiter will never get on with his life. If my soup is cold only if it is not to be served cold, you say something nicely. After all you are paying for it.

How do you close your mouth whilst speaking? Ventriloquism?

I guess telling someone to go to the back of the f***ing line is out of the question... ;)

How do you speak with you mouth closed? Stupid.

Sorry,chaps, but this series of questions was never set by someone with the right background - probably a pleb or an American, which is worse. 1. If you haven't been introduced, there's NO WAY you acknowledge the presence of a stranger. They could be an oik of the worst kind......... 2.We're Bullingdon Club people, not plebeian whimps. If the soup's cold, you call the waiter, stick your finger in the cold soup, pour it on the floor & wipe your finger on his shirt whist demanding hot soup (unless it's Gaspatchio, of course). 3. Water? You realise what fish do in water? Champagne meets minimum hygiene standards, when all's said & done... 4. Good God. If someone else is footing the bill (thank God), don't bite the hand that feeds you by inviting friends. Arriving late is not only acceptable, but is regarded as considerate as traffic delays in the better parts (& worst parts) of the UK are endemic. 5. Even "Dr Larson" is wrong. "You" is correct until you have been properly introduced by a reputable 3rd party. 6. Correct. The "right" people do not experience problems of this sort. 7. Wrong. One does not wish to portray ones-self as a total ignoramus. A suitable constituency might become available at short notice. Therefore the only possible response should be the 3rd one. One is usually above such mediocraty, but needs must........ 8. For goodness' sake, it's bad enough that we can't afford to send a footman or valet to queue, and the butler wouldn't, so we have to demean ourselves. Telling the oiks to get to the back of the queue is the least troublesome. 9. Difficult to speak with your mouth closed........ 10. An over-simplification. In good society, it is unacceptable to eat exclusively with a fork held in the right hand. Both knife & fork should be used, and convention dictates that the knife should be held in the right hand. However, left-handed people must be accepted. 11. Typically American (or non-European) reaction. We, in Europe, presume the "service charge" has been included in the bill (which it has by law, 'cos the servers are paid at least the minimum wage). 12. All the responses offered are socially unacceptable. 13. One of the few that you got right...... 14. Not nowadays. Nowadays Money is THE thing.........

Dreadful so many of the given answers are quite quite wrong, in Europe anyway.

That was exactly my thought!
