I'm very backwards.... sorry....
I haven't the fainest idea what this thread is about.
Is it from a book ? or a television program ?

Please enlighten me.

I was clueless as well but was going on the idea that perhaps it was written by UTH's mother to Claire and simply couldn't wrap my head around that.

While I may imagine someone taking issue with UTH's manners (he is a man after all ), I can not imagine Claire having bad manners.


The beginning before eating thing has been a little strange for me here. I was raised to wait until everyone is served (and then to say grace) before anyone begins.

Hubby and m-i-l both begin as soon as they get their plate. It used to drive me nuts to see him half finished before I was ready to begin, problem was solved though by serving myself first and letting him help himself. (Side effect of this is fewer leftovers going to waste, forgotten in the fridge.)

About "Also the starting before everyone else does"

If you are diabetic & start getting early symptoms then you have to start to eat immediately before things take a nasty turn for the worse......
Where does it say she was going hypo? If she controls her diet and blood sugar properly then a few minutes shouldn't make a difference.

Emergencies do happen, and if this was one then the mil truly is evil.

‘She has her head stuck so far up her own a*** she doesn't know whether to speak or f**t’: Father of bride-to-be brands email mother-in-law from hell ‘Miss Fancy-Pants’

... hmmm, goes some way to explaining the manners (or lack of) of his daughter
