Do you play "the 3 second rule" with dropped food?

I do if its my house because I know who/what has been on my floors and when I last cleaned them lol

  • It depends on what fell on the floor. A piece of candy that has a hard coating to it yep it is fair game, a juicy piece of fruit that stuff will stick too, No way.
    I would never pick up anything in public and eat it...who knows what is on the floor there.

  • Only at home for me too! But last night I saw a cookie on the floor that my son dropped and I picked it and handed it to his dad and said jokingly "Cookie?" he took from me and ate it! He didn't know I picked it up off the floor. It had been on the floor longer then 3 sec but i didn't want to tell him!

  • Depends where I am and what the food is.

  • Sometimes...but only at home.

  • Sometimes, if the food is for me.
    If it's for someone else then I don't pay attention to how long it has been on the floor - 3 seconds, 10 seconds - I just dust it off and put it on their plate without a word.
    LOL....for crying out loud, I used to pick fruits and veggies fresh out of the garden and eat them after I dusted them off.
