Bow Your Head? Close Your Eyes? How to act when saying grace 101.

My guess is that this has been covered in another forum but I wanted to throw it out there;

 

So who among us has been the following situation: You are sitting at a friends or even a family's dinner table and everyone gets ready to say grace. Everyone bows their heads and or closes their eyes.  What do you do?  Do you close your eyes and or bow your head out of respect and think to yourself "omg this is such bs", or do you hold your atheist head up high with a kind of "suck-it" mentality I am not going to coddle you just because you expect me to, I'm an atheist dammit and proud of it!!! 

 

Would love to hear your thoughts and stories!!

I sit politely. I don't take the piss. I am respectful, because I would consider it bad manners to make an issue.  Don't make no difference to me. I have been asked if I wanted to lead in grace before. I just said 'no thanks, and smiled' & that was enough!
