    1. Mobile devices should not be used while eating.
    2. Do not wear a cap or headwear when eating. (I grew up with this rule)

    -No talking if there's food in your mouth
    -No watching TV or any tablet, white eating
    -For my brothers, dress decently, not being half-clothed, even in the hottest summer (my father's rule, and I agree)
