Do you dislike people trying to share your food?

Omg, this makes me so mad 😠
If I get any McDonald's fries I always ask dh if he wants any and he always says "no thanks", but will then have one of mine when I get home 😬
Even if it's just ONE fry, I just can't stand it! 😖
I hate people touching my food or trying to share.
Anybody else like this?

So I end up having to eat it secretly like an alcoholic because others see this as a fatal character flaw.
I eat secret chocolate in bed 😆
I don't think I'd be able to cope with one of those communal meals that some people have where you sit round and all muck in. I'd be like "get away from my food!"

I avoid tapas
Me too. I went to a tapas place once for some work thing - never again! Everyone else was raving about it but the things I wanted always seemed to be at the other end of the table and I couldn't concentrate or enjoy my food at all not really knowing what I was going to be able to get hold of and having to ask for things to be passed.
I don't like carveries or buffets either - just want my food to come on a plate with as little fuss as possible.

I hate people talking to me when I’m eating. I’ve been known to throw food away because the talking has “contaminated” it
Yes. I used to struggle eating at pil's because there'd be so much talking. At Christmas dinner they'd talk so much about the food prior to eating it that It'd be practically cold by the time we were allowed to start. I hate seeing food just sitting there whilst we had to perform niceties over it 😫
