Check this article out. Am I the only one who thinks it's stupid?!
I eat my entire meal with the same fork, or spoon if needed. Do you follow table etiquette to the "T"

I don't do that when we are out at a restaurant.  They dont usually take plates without asking if you are done and if I am I put my napkin and utensils on the plate but not in a certain way.

I doubt many people today even know how to set a formal dinner table unless they look it up and as for what the fork and knife mean according to placement, I sincerely doubt the waitstaff even know that unless they happen to look it up.
