Once in a while, we meet those people who feel the need to eat off of our plates. Now we aren't talking about sharing a fabulous dessert with a close friend or loved one. No, we are referring to those grown adults who are sitting across the table and reach over just to try our steak because their chicken is too dry. We're are all about sharing food and letting other people have a taste, but let's have a bit of class!
If you are intrigued by the dish your friend ordered, don't ask for a bite unless you know they are willing to share. Not every person likes to share. Asking for a taste only works in an informal and intimate setting.
Never, ever reach across the table with your fork and remove a piece of meat from a friend's dinner plate. Can we say, RUDE! Unfortunately, we have seen this happen.
If your friend agrees to share their dinner, never, ever eat off their fork! This is only acceptable if it is the fork belonging to your lover!
Instead of being obvious about wanting to taste your friend's food, try to ask subtly. "Wow, that dish looks amazing!" "I should've ordered the same as you!" Show a bit of class, your friends will appreciate you for it!
