It's a topic that is highly referenced in all medias to which we can all relate, our emotional attachments to Food!! The subject has been represented in fiction due to its necessity as a resource for life itself. It's something we cherish, but how much? We as a human race are civilized, prideful, somewhat discrete when it comes to possessing and consumption of food. We are not scavenger rats...


the 3 second rule is dependent on location

...though that said everyone has a limit, and what's more we as a race have a broader spectrum of emotions and emotional attachments to things than those of other beasts of the animal kingdom. Such emotions that can break down the limitations we imposed on ourselves as a race.




So to everyone, I pose this question. How far would you go for food? Your emotional attachments, your possessiveness?


For example: I consider myself reasonably well a part of society, and although limited on funds, wouldn't ever pick up and consume any random food I see laying in the street, not even an untouched individually wrapped item as it would be on the shelf of a store (something I've come across surprisingly frequently)... but I was truly shaken one occasion while walking home one night having stopped by a fried chicken shop for a snack box (yes I know walking while eating isn't considered civilized by many, and in some cases is even rude), when I stumbled and one of the pieces fell to the street floor... what's more the street in question was one of those that saw less action from the street cleaners, simply put, it was a very dusty street...
... I was so torn at this moment, I only had 1 piece after all (it was a cheap snack box after all), and I was quite peckish... whats more the food was MY food, not just some random food, and it wasn't just a mere chip (also included in the box was chips)... I wouldn't have second thoughts about a chip that fell to the floor. I was heart broken, my precious delicious piece of fried chicken had been defiled... but I had picked it up... it had accumulated some debris from the ground (I cringed)... it was easily dustable, but it had clearly fallen on filthy ground... I was on the verge of tears, I could either bin it and cry, or dust it... maybe peal a bit of the most impacted batter off and consume it... but I was outside and in public...

...I did the later after darting out of public view (I hope), I just cant sacrifice to the bin such rare occasional treats.

Don't drink from my bottle.
I would rather have you spit in my mouth than spit in my bottle.

I get possessive if I'm nearly broke and forked out my money for food that I bought because I want to eat it. It's like, if you're that hungry that you have to eat half of my food BUY YOUR OWN DAMN FOOD. I mean this is obviously dependent on who it is, I'm more lenient to some people than I am to others but on the inside I'm secretly raging because I'm damn hungry and damn broke.

I'll eat food that fell off a plate and onto the table but probably not off the floor or anything like that.

I don't like to share if it's my favourite food, well maybe I'd share if you are someone important but I'll hate you for a moment

I try to share. But it just makes me hate people when it's gone in less than two days and I never got to touch it. If it's something I love or rarely get, they better be prepared to lose a hand if they want to try and get a piece of it. I have a five second rule depending on where I dropped it.

This,big time.
When I go shopping and get a bunch of food, I like a few things above all else, like frozen rise crust pizza, I came into the kitchen once to find one of the pizza I bought sitting on the counter burnt to a crisp,black as midnight and untouched, pissed,at least make an effort to try and eat the holy grail of foods in my book that you turned into an unrecognizable burnt abomination, that and my liquids, sharing isn't even in the same sentence as my liquid drinks......no...way..in...hell

I had some two day old tea on my desk.
I don't know why I didn't notice it for so long but I microwaved is and did a disappearing act on it.
Fun fact; I'm magic.

If we're friends, I'll share.

If we're family, you can go ahead and starve

I'll share any food, but don't ask me for a piece of cake, because I'm not sharing my cake with anybody, even if they were dying.

I'll share most anything with most anyone (within reason...No you dirty tramp you cannot have my pint).
Steal a chip off my plate and I might find it cute (assuming you are). Touch my steak...and I will drive my fork tip first through your hand, assuming I haven't already disarmed your forking hand and reclaimed my steak.
As for dropping food...it all depends on location. I once rescued fish and chips off the pavement near my college. My friends were nonplussed, "how will you solve this one Tiz". Simples I says - I scooped up the fish (it landed ON TOP of the chips...WIN) and all but the bottom layer of chips. Even they were surprised at how effective it was...and I got to eat my Haddock and Chips. The mushy peas were beyond saving though.
I did once eat apples I'd left hung on a bush in a bag for a week...but that was desperation...and I was so thirsty...and nobody saw...so maybe it didn't really happen?

;-; I went to the movie theaters with my aunt and cousins one day and needless to say I should've bought my own popcorn. No offense to people of larger stature, but damn I only got one very small handful from a very large tub of buttery goodness, of which I buttered myself. I should have known the dangers when posed with the question...Would you like to just share a large? Me thinking carelessly 'Oh sure we can easily share a Large popcorn' so of course I agreed. We all find seats, I pass out the plethora of candy I bought for the kiddies (of course keeping my favorite) and my aunt immediately attacks the box of popcorn! I did not want my hand to be taken into the crossfire so like previously stated I only got a tiny handful before I was even offered the leftover bits at the bottom. I was disgusted thinking why didn't you just finish the damn popcorn?! But instead I declined the half-hearted offer. Peeved at this point, I didn't even bother to get up to get more since the movie had well developed. So I suffered the rest of the movie with only my candies. Movie popcorn is something I rarely get to enjoy because I don't have the money to just go to the movies anytime something good is in theaters. That day was no exception .

What I buy belongs to me. If it is something I know needs protecting against my enemies I will stash it close by where none may touch it. If they ask politely I will hand them some in most cases. The only time I will abandon what is mine is if one has put their grubby hands on it. Do not reach into any bag/box/container of food that might be mine. If you want some, pour it out instead of reaching in. After asking of course. Never touch my drink. Ever. If either of these things has occurred without me knowing then you must never tell me about it because I will cause injuries. Ignorance is bliss with things concerning my food and other people.

In short, I don't mind sharing, but I have rules that must be followed.

For my best friend... I can't argue with her, well I can try, but well she is a woman, and no man wins that argument. So against her I am powerless if she wants my food. But otherwise I am a hoarder when it comes to my snacks at least. I have a drawer FULL of snacks, usually full atleast, right now its a bit bare since I am waiting for payday.

My other best friend he... well he follows his nickname of Fatman thoroughly, he usually asks before taking any of my food but its more like a "Hey can I have this?" As he is eating it already. But he is practically like a brother in my family (hell my parents already buy extra food for the house because of him) so it doesn't really bother me that much unless it is from my drawer of snacks, because they are mine, and mine alone.

Past that... no one touches my food. Not in my house, not while out to eat, no one no where, within reason, obviously there are some things out there meant to be shared, like appetizers. But past that... my drink is my drink, my plate of food is my plate of food. I don't even remember letting any of my girlfriends eat from my plate before so long as I was aware of it.
