This question already has an answer here:
I would like to clarify my doubts. Is it okay if I eat snacks at my office where there are about 20 people working?
An obvious solution would be to just ask : "would you guys mind me eating my stuff?". However the answer from my colleagues is obvious, I expect them to be polite enough to say nothing and let me eat, so I won't get a real answer.
Some additional information:
- I don't want to share with everyone in this particular situation, because there would be less left for me, but I won't mind a few of my colleagues ask "let me taste it";
- I'm asking this question, because I'm new at work (17 y.o. programmer) and I've spent most of my life at the computer eating, so I'm used to chewing something while working.
- Another reason I'm asking it here is that I don't want to seem strange in my colleagues eyes and feel awkward.
