(1/12) - Only at funerals...

When eating with chopsticks, NEVER stick your chopsticks in your rice bowl so they stand up. This is only done at funerals when a bowl of rice is placed on the altar. Also, NEVER pass food from your chopstick to someone else's chopstick. The history of this offense isn’t clear, but perhaps it’s just “cleaner” with regard to “germs.” Even if you don’t understand it, just go with it, and you’ll win admirers.
