Do you eat off someone else's plate or take a bite of something after someone has already bitten?


Especially if someone has moved the food all around the plate with the same fork that has been in their mouth...would you eat off that plate? Or would you take a bite of something directly where the other person has bitten. And why or why not?

    Diana, great story. Thanks for sharing, even though you sadly had to waste the food. But I know I would have done the same thing. And I agree that part of not wanting to share germs with strangers may just be a biological protective instinct.

    Good for you peeples! I can't do it. My husband and me often share meals or desserts, but our food is separated to our own sides of the plates. I can kiss him, but there's just something about eating food after him, or anyone that I just can't do!

    I agree with you absolutely. In my comment, I was perhaps talking about my gut reaction, rather than common sense!

    This is so true, Glenis. Unfortunately, where I live, there is a huge homeless population. Even many children with homes still go to bed hungry. I just think it is important to realize one's good fortune and avoid waste, where it is safe to do so.
