Poll: Do You Ask Before Eating Off Your Friend's Plate?

Some of us were raised in a family-style methodology of eating where it's understood that my plate is your plate. Want to try a meatball? Just fork one over, with maybe the barest hint of formality. For others, the path from your friends/significant other's/family member's plate to yours is a bit more treacherous. It might lead in pouting, sulking, or other ungenerous reactions if you try to spear their asparagus.

What's your food-sharing ethos? Do you have to wait for your friend to portion out a piece and drop it off? Or have you reached a level intimacy where you don't even have to ask? Take the poll! ยป
