    You're at a restaurant and the entire party for the table next to you left an untouched dessert on the table. What would you do? Enjoy it?

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Well if i can smuggle it without anyone else in the resturant noticing then i'll go for it and that really depends on what the dessert is because i dislike a lot of desserts.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I would tell the waiter or waitress and ask who left an untouched dessert. The honest is the best policy. Stealing makes you a crook and a jerk. [​IMG]

    To be honest, as me, it would depend on who I am dining with. If I was alone, I would go get it and enjoy every bite of it. If I was with my gf, she would never permit me to go near it. If I was with my family, I would get it and share it with all of them.. [​IMG]

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I would think "It's a trap!" and I wouldn't go for it. There's just something about eating food that was on a stranger's table that doesn't appeal to me. You don't know what's been done to it.

    But morally speaking, I see nothing wrong with eating it if it was left there. It's already been paid for and the one who ordered it obviously didn't want it. So as far as I'm concerned it's up for grabs.

    The only problem I foresee the restaurant having is that they might not let you eat it for legal reasons. If in fact it was tampered with and you ate it and somehow got sick, they'd have a potential lawsuit on their hands. If they don't let you eat it, it's because they have to cover their asses as a business.

    If I caught them before they left, I would tell them that they forgot their pie. And if they let me have it, then that would be just dandy [​IMG] !

    If not, I would leave it because I don't really care for pie...

    Wouldn't touch it.
    I can buy my own desserts at a restaurant, don't particularly need to take ones lying around.

    Why would I eat someone else's food that they paid for? Especially without their permission.

    I'll just leave it, since I don't eat desserts at restaurants. I'm usually too full after the main course (my stomach can't exactly take in a lot of food). And even if I wasn't full I'd still leave it alone since I could just get my own.
