Don't need a huge house to have a table you eat off.

Some houses don't have a dining room. You eat on the sofa in the
lounge.

I used to live in a 3 bedroom house that had a living room we seldom
used. The other room was a small kitchen (cooking area) and we had
table
to eat on, couch, easy chair,and the TV set in that room.

You sat in the kitchen in preference to the living room? Why?

Refined and cultured people don't eat in the living room. That's for
bogans. Dining rooms are for *dining*. Our first house of about 120
square metres had both a dining room and a kitchen large enough for a
decent sized table. We ate our breakfast on the kitchen table


Nope, proper snobs only use the dining room. Council estate dwellers
eat in the kitchen.


I didn't use the term *snob*. You introduced that. Besides, I have never
lived on/in a council estate.


You said "refined and cultured".

and other meals were partaken on the dining room table. It's what
*dining tables* are for. You must be a boor.


And you must be a snob, or someone incapable of balancing a plate on
your lap. Multitask, watch TV at the same time.


Meals on plates are not meant to be eaten in front of a TV.


There os no valid reason for not multitasking. Why waste time eating then watching TV when you can do both at once and in a comfier chair?

That is what bogans do. Meals should be eaten at a table and the occasion used for socialising.


Socialise by discussing the TV program. Or even just sit on the comfy chairs with the TV off and talk.

I can tell you have never done any o that since you don't
even understand the concept of *dining*.


Consuming food. That's what foods for.

The house was around 1100 sqft.

Twice my original size before the extension. I'd still have been short
of space.

You live in a dogbox. A boor in a dogbox. Yes, quite apt.


Not my fault the UK is overpopulated. Why do people not buy condoms?


If they did, you would definitely have been an early *victim*.
And the world a much better place.


It's the numbers that are important.
