Is it okay to ask for more food around other people?


question: Recently at a work event they served lunch. I’m trying to learn good manners, but I can’t find the right etiquette answer. What about at your friend’s house?

Curry’s answer: Of course, if you’re still hungry, a few seconds is fine.

LILLIE-BETH’s answer: At many events, lunch is served on a plate. In that case, I wouldn’t ask for seconds unless, for example, there was a basket of bread on the table and not everyone rolled the bread. After everyone has finished their rolls, you can ask for a second roll. Usually they have enough food for the number of people in attendance, not seconds.
