Why do people eat rice with a fork instead of a spoon?

I just bought a Thai Red Chicken Curry rice dish from Pod. Curiously, they gave me a fork to eat it with, despite a spoon being more practical to eat rice with - why?.

fork knows I use a spoon
I know, many times I've had to ask for a spoon at restaurants because they only give a fork.
I cannot eat rice with a fork, it doesn't pick up enough food.
Spoons are for soup and desserts.
I eat rice with chopsticks so shrug
I eat my peas with honey,
I've done so all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny,
But keeps them on the knife.

Sounds like you need a shovel, if a fork doesn't hold enough food.
I use a spoon to eat pasta (not spagetti cos tha would be dumb) just pasta shells and stuff. Prefer it to a fork.

Some think I am weird but, well, it's just easier.
^^^ I bet you chew yoghurt as well :P

Nope, spoons does the job. It's job. Not a fork! It's barely a mouthful.
I guess it's because they can? Just like Chinese can use chop-sticks. Why would you EVER use that I mean come on!

I only use chopsticks when I've eating rice from a bowl as opposed to a plate or a container.
Il admit im a fork-er
fork-ers are more polite.
I eat anything with a spoon, except spaghetti, and yes I did try
I guess I was just brought up like that, so.
cos it is healthier to eat food in small pieces rather then swallowing the whole pack of rice. thats why they are eating with sticks (it takes longer) but did u see fat chinese?? Digestion is faster when u eat that way

Something to do with seperating the grains I suppose which also applies to Cous Cous

Spoons are for soup and greedy people. My partner uses just a fork (no knife) for most meals and it really annoys me.
Maybe I was just raised to elitist
Blatantly stolen from elsewhere...

Of all the utensils that were invented to eat rice with...

How the fcuk did two sticks win?
