You do not have to share. People probably wouldn't ask anyway; it's highly unlikely.

If you open a packet of chips or biscuits, there's this weird feeling that you have to share.

But, if you decant those chips into a separate smaller bag, then it's obvious you've packed them for yourself and the overall expectation is that you don't share.

Just hover over your food like a little scrooge and people will get the hint! I think most people are too inhibited to ask anyway.

I'd share if she was hot.



Regardless of my degree of satiation or starvation.

Food can be used as an ice-breaker or seducer

I think we embarrassed her and ran her off.

I would agree with you, preraph...

I only shared my lunch a few times and that was with this beautiful black swan. Years ago, I had this job near a lake and I would walk there and eat my lunch. Well, I made the mistake of throwing a leftover crust of bread to this black swan. After doing that a few times, the swan would come up and "beg" for food. He/she wasn't content with a little scrap or crust at the end and it didn't want to wait, either. So lesson learned, don't feed the swans, they are very smart, remember you and can be aggressive.

If someone asked me if I would share my food, I would. I mean, weíre not starving here, and even if we were, itís always good to share. Viktor Frankl was in a concentration camp for quite some time and he shared his tiny piece of food. Does that help to put it in perspective?

Exams are always a bit stressful, it's normal to be overthinking this a little. My students used to ask me questions like these all the time too, you're definitely not the only one.

Don't worry about the food part. I hope your exam goes well.

Hope you do well in the exam!

If someone asks, just kindly say you don't have much to give right now and tell them there are stores close by or a cafeteria they can go buy food. Please try not to stress about it. The chance of a stranger approaching you and asking something like that is really, really low.
