Are you ever at a wedding or a banquet and are confused with all the glasses and plates on the table as to which one is yours? I used find this particularly confusing at round tables. Years ago I learned a wonderful little trick that has solved this quandary for me, so I never have a problem knowing which is my water glass and which is my bread plate. What is more embarrassing than sitting next to your boss and having used his bread plate for your roll?
All you need is these two little letters:
You are probably wondering what I am talking about, how can a b. and a d help me know which plates and glasses are mine. Consider them not as a b and a d, but as b for bread and d for drink. Is it starting to make any sense yet?
Make a lower case “b” with your hand. That will be with your left hand and isn’t it amazing, your bread plate is on your left.
Your right hand will make a “d” and there you have it, your drink glasses will be on your right! Easy to remember and easy to discretely do under the edge of the table! No more embarrassing using someone else’s bread plate or drinking from their water glass!
