Spitting out food in order to eat it

I hate eating something, and having to spit part of it out while chewing in order to eat it. Watermelon (seeds), cherries, olives (pits), etc.
Similarly, having to literally dissect the animal on your plate after it has been served up, like a cornish game hen, or a whole fish. Anyone else here dislike having to spit out tiny, pin bones while attempting to eat dinner in a restaurant, in order not to choke?
