DEAR MISS MANNERS: My husband and I dine out about once a week. He is fond of "people-watching" and likes to look at other diners while we are eating. I think, however, that he tends to stare at people. He says one cannot have an expectation of privacy in a public restaurant. I think it's rude to stare.
Can Miss Manners please explain the difference between staring and people-watching?
GENTLE READER: Staring is when you get caught.
