The OP explained that they don't like sharing food with people, so they feel awkward when people want to sample their food.

The Reddit user says that every time they go out for a meal with family or friends, they order two of everything to avoid this problem.
But recently, the OP and their cousin went out for dinner at a nice restaurant.
The OP says they don't understand why everyone thinks they were being selfish, so they turned to Reddit for advice.
Here's how people reacted.
Okay, but perhaps just say 'no.'
"There is something wrong with them, not you."
"Joey doesn't share food!"
But, what about the germs?
"A reasonable boundary."
At least you didn't stab them with a fork!
"You do you."
"They're getting offended because you are not letting them cross your boundary."
"Ignore them and keep doing your own thing."
"Do what makes you feel good."
Asking them was your first mistake!
It doesn't concern them.
"You're the one paying for it."
This wouldn't happen in England!
Do they even know what selfish means?
"Good on you."
"A little unusual."
"I don't see how this is a problem."
What's your take on this situation? Do you think the OP is being over the top by ordering extra food, or are they making a reasonable compromise?
Either way, they certainly aren't harming anyone else by ordering and paying for extra food. So, why should it matter so much to anyone else?
