At some point between the ages of three and six, kids are taught that "sharing is caring." It's an important lesson that can help ensure said child doesn't turn into the worst brat this planet has ever seen -- and it most likely helps keep many playground brawls at bay. But the older we get, the less that motto rings true. Especially when it comes to food.
There's an unspoken understanding that goes with sharing food, but not everyone seems to have gotten the memo. Sharing a plate of fries is fine. Going halfsies on a dessert is great. Even sharing an entire entree can work. But not with just anyone. There are some people that you'll never want to share food with because they just don't get it.
Beware of the 11 worst food-sharing offenders, and be sure to adamantly decline next time they ask if you want to split a meal.

No, no, no, no, no.

You know who we're talking about. It's the person who disregards the fork next to the olive jar and digs in with their fingers. The one who never learned how to use a knife to get food on their fork and so they use their thumb instead. These people probably don't even wash their hands -- just sayin'.

You know what we mean, the bite that you've been working up to throughout your entire meal. That beautiful bite that sums up everything that was amazing about your dish. And then someone just swoops in and takes it without a second thought. Watch out for those people. They're very, very cruel.
