    For some reason, I have NEVER had the ability to use chopsticks (I just don't have that co-ordination as such).

    Does anyone here have the same problem?

    Someone bet me a fiver (plus the cost of our meals) I couldn't eat a whole chinese meal with chopsticks.

    Luckily they didn't put a time limit on it. It took me about an hour to eat it, cos i'm soo rubbish with chopsticks, but I got a free meal and a fiver out of it

    Even though I almost use chopsticks every day since I'm born I can't use it correctly. Shame on myself.

    I hold them like the way I'm holding pens. It's a lot easier.

    Why didn't they set a time limit?

    It just didn't occur to them/ they thought I'd give up and use cutlery.

    With great difficulty and probably to the dispair of any oriental person watching. :blush: I even ended up with cramp in my hand because I was holding them so awkwardly.
