Wetting One's Spoon Before Eating?

All right, I give up and am asking for help. In the Japanese drama, Lunch Queen, the heroine first put her spoon in a glass of water before eating, and was ridiculed for it (apparently only poor people do this). I have been searching all over the Internet using Google and keywords like "before eat water glass spoon curry rice" in quite a few combinations (and I even used the "-recipe" modifier to get rid of all the recipes that were coming up), but I can't find anything on this. Help--can someone tell me where this habit originated, and how/why?
