Default Has anyone ever used chopsticks to eat with?

I was just watching the Expedia 'All By Myself' commercial with the androgynous helpful person and they were of course using chopsticks to eat their chop suey. IRL I've never seen anyone use anything but regular utensils to consume their Chinese food. Is this some kind of haughty NYC/Hollywood thing or what?

My son and his wife always eat oriental food using chopsticks.(he is quite good) We go to restaurants with them often. I never tried sticks and doubt that I ever will.

Obviously.

I’ve been in small restaurants in Japan where you were SOL if you couldn’t use them.

I've been using them for decades when I eat Chinese, or Japanese food. Great for Sushi and Sashimi.

no chopsticks for me.

Hand me a pair and I'd whip out my
knife, sharpen the ends, and stab at my food.

Good, we show no such chopstick pretentiousness here in the Midwest.
