Hate going to Chinese and Japanese restaurants (and every other Asian restaurant) because you're absolutely frightened of those chopsticks, and you're too embarrassed to ask for silverware? Overcome your fears and finally learn how to use those chopsticks. This video will show you how to use them properly.
You will start by first removing the chopsticks from the paper bag. Break them into two individual sticks. Hold one stick as you would a pencil. Grab the other stick and hold it between the forefinger and thumb. The secret is that the first stick does not move, only the second one does. Use this technique and you will be a master at using chopsticks.
