Punching A Guy In The Head For Refusing To Give You A Bite Of His Burrito Is Very Uncool

In today’s society, there’s a reasonable expectation to food rights. And by that I mean, when you buy yourself something tasty to eat, a member of the general public previously unknown to you has no right to expect a bite of your food.
