    What would you do?

    Let's say you're about to eat something delicious. Imagine it's a pizza slice, pasta, hamburger, etc. So you're smashing it and all the sudden whoops! A piece of ham on the pizza or you drop half of the hamburger. It hits the floor.

    Would you:
    A: Pick it up and put it in the garbage because it's been on the floor.
    B: Pick it up, wash it off, and eat it.
    C: Pick it up and eat it.

    At this point in my life, I would just throw it out.

    But in the future if I am not so fortunate, I would not hesitate to pick it back up and eat it.

    There's an unwritten rule...its ok to pick it up and eat it as long you pick it up within 3 seconds...otherwise, forget it.

    Sometimes I wash it off, sometimes I just eat it, sometimes I throw it away. Depends on what it was, and what it fell on.

    I voted pick it up and eat it but it depends on the scenario.


    1. If a slice of pizza lands with the topping on the floor, or the burger opens up and lands with the good stuff I'd def throw it. I'll also throw anything with sause like pasta, or sticky like pizza toppings.
    2. But if the pizza slice lands with the crust and the burger stays together and lands with the bread, I'll just blow a bit, pat it with my hand and eat it. Roomba does a good job cleaning the floors.

    It really depends on the floor. In a house with several cats and a dog I wouldn't want to eat it with hair on it though I doubt I'd get to it before the dog anyway.
    If it were to land on a clean floor, it obviously depends what type of food it is but possibly.
    I can read your thoughts.

    Toss it. 5 second rule is BS.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    first world problems

    i've dropped food in dirt and dusted it off, whats a bit of grit to good food?
    i've dropped food in mud, why throw the whole thing away when only a small portion has been fouled?
    a household floor? $#@!s hilarious, eat it, whats wrong with you? vacuum and mops were made for a reason....

    if the whole item becomes inedible (someone steps in it or i drop it in a muddy puddle) then yes, i will trash it, but why waste perfectly good food...

    that being said, if i drop something down beneath a diner table (even a bottle) i won't be eating/drinking it again, meh, just one of my 'things'.

    It's just like being a kid again, because you would eat anything that was on the floor/ground and it never killed you... So makes no different now, besides i would not eat a spider now

    If it's a newly cleaned floor, then I'd eat it.
    and as far as pizza, if it falls face down, then I'd probably toss it, as it's hard to dust off cheese/sauce. But face up, I'd wipe/clean the crust and keep eating. Same thing with a burger. As long as the patty/pickle/ketchup and mayo side of a bun don't hit the floor, clean it up and keep eating.

    I would throw it in the trash, but my dog is probably way faster than me so she would probably snatch up what ever dropped before I could get to it...she is like a velociraptor!

    If you rephrased this just a bit, it would sound like a prompt out of an old-school adventure game.
