I don't care, but sometimes if I'm with someone and they're thinking of getting the same thing I was thinking about, then I'll pick something else. I'm not a big "sharer" either though, so it's not a big deal.

Hell yeah. I totally get up and make a scene by asking them to take it outside. Then we fight to the death and winner gets both plates. But really, I don't care. I don't even care if the entire table orders the same thing.

It doesn't bother me at all...I'm the only one eating my food for the most part, so I don't care what others get.

Yes, because I love to share! :)

i usually don't care too much. it's just when you're out with one other person and you're ordering the same thing - it's kind of a moot point but i don't think that it's any reason to get upset

Doesn't bother me at all. I don't expect people to share their food with me and I hope my friends don't expect me to share my food with them. I'm greedy I guess.

Nope, it doesn't bother me.

Only bugs me with my mom. Whenever we all eat out, she waffles over the menu for forever, flip flops with a half dozen choices, makes the waitress come back over and over, finally asks me what I'm getting, and automatically switches to it. And often, she complains about it. THAT'S annoying.

It doesn't bother me. I order what I want; you order what you want. I don't like sharing because that usually means I either have to compromise to order something that both my husband and I will like or I have to give up part of something I really want all for myself.

I don't care, but it drives my sister crazy! We all trade bites (just one bite though - you eat whatever you ordered!) and she always wants to have the most options to try.

What the ?? I don't care at all what anyone else eats, as long as I like my dish.

if i'm with just one person, i'd prob change my order if ours was the same, but if i'm in a big group i could care less, as long as i try something new i'm cool

To be honest, the idea that you would be sharing never occurred to me, so I wondered why anyone *would* mind! At our family dinners, I actually like it if other people order the same thing, so we can compare what we think of it. We don't usually share our food unless someone really wants to try a bite or someone can't finish their plate. Hee, I guess we all needed a bit more practice sharing our food and toys as children.

I don't share, so it makes no difference to me.

No I don't care, in fact I prefer it when I'm ding with certain people who share too much basically eating most of my dish. You know who you are!

i don't get angry or anything but when i'm out with someone close enough to share (ie: close friends, boyfriend, mom, sister) it's nice to get something different so we can share but with colleagues, who i wouldn't necessarily share with, i wouldn't think twice if we got the same dish if my bf and i are trying to decide between certain things, we usually decide amongst ourselves to get one each and try the others'
