I am a very picky eater. Whenever I go to my friend’s house, there are times that I do not like the food that is being served. I don’t want to eat the food, but I also don’t want to be rude to their parents. What should I do?
Dear Miss Picky,
That is always an awkward situation. You’re not alone on this, many people are picky eaters also. If you can try a little piece, do so. If not, decline in the most polite way possible. Try coming up with an excuse such as, “No thanks, I had a big lunch.” You don’t have to eat what is served, but always remember your manners.
