So many people will say “Hey, I’m trying to eat here” or otherwise get squeamish when talking about “gross” things while eating.

Never affected me. I can be talking about intricate details on how to pull the skin and brains off of a skull , all while eating a sammich.

I have been elbow deep in the guts of a deer. Then pulled off the rubber gloves, giving me clean dry hands, but still blood all over my arms and clothes, then reach in a cooler and pull out a PBJ and a soda and eat lunch.

What is the big fricking deal? I frequently eat dinner or lunch while surfing ARFCOM. Oh look, someone’s head blown off by our troops…take another bite of meatloaf, and laugh at the dead Tango.

Poll coming.

Nope.

I'm the one who mentions maggots at every opportunity when certain people visit.

No.

When I was in EMS before the Army, we'd eat spagetti and,
talk about "The Motorcycle Guts Guy" or "Shotgun suicide guy".

Never bothered me at all.

I try to avoid talking about burns when I eat though.

Burn injuries I have a tough time with.

Human waste bothers me too.

It doesn't make me sick, but I find it to be inappropriate. My Mom is the worst. We'll be at Thanksgiving dinner, and she'll launch into a *detailed* description of her neighbor's cat's colon problems or something. I will usually cut her off with a quick, "Speaking of segues, those are nice placemats." She'll catch on about the third time.

My wife and I have to remember who we're eating dinner with. It turns out some people don't like converations like that.

it didn't bother me a few years ago but it does now

Not at all. Eating and what I am thinking about or talking about seem never to affect one another. I have a good friend who is an Army head/neck trauma specialist. We'll talk about severe head injuries over dinner and be fine. Her husband, on the other hand, will run out of the room!!!

Gallows humor is the best, but those medical shows that show operations with those stainless power tools get me.

Talking about nasty stuff doesnt bother me, I dont like looking at stuff like that while I eat though.

It doesn't make me sick, but I was raised not to discuss those things at the table.

I used to do news photography, I got jaded pretty quick. My first drowning victim was pretty bad though. He had been in the water for a couple days and the fish had been chowing down on him. I still can't eat seafood.
