This week Ashton takes us through 'proper' meal etiquette. Not only that but then the crew talks about the normal real world applications that we will encounter as we become adults. How do we act when going out for a meal with a boss or networking? What if I go to a fancy gala? What if I host? Where do the forks go?(Hint: to the L-E-F-T). This episode has got all the answers for you! Also the Dad shares his biggest pet peeves! We hope you enjoy this weeks installment of Adulting Decrypted.
