After you have finished your meal you may, out of habit, place your napkin on your plate. Do not do it here! If there is any food left, the restaurant will give this to poor people after they close. If you put the napkin on it ? they won?t. It is a really hard habit to break, but please remember to leave your napkin on the table when you finish.
