I can't imagine how embarrassed I'd be telling a waiter to withhold a part of a dish without having a severe allergy.
What about barf gag reflexes due to certain things like freshly chopped onions?

where do you draw the line mich on omission or adding? is it just for food or other things as well?

I mean I've said toppings are a pretty good line but what do you have in mind?
non food related things. would you feel bad asking for someone to top off fluids during an oil change? Haircut sucks and you want a little more taken off? etc.

Topping off fluids with an oil change should be agreed upon as part of the service or not requested.

Quote
Keeping your fluids topped off between services is important to your vehicle and to your peace of mind. Our top off policy helps provide this piece of mind. With every Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, we provide complimentary fluid top off service on vital fluids including motor oil (the same type of oil purchased originally), transmission, power steering, differential/transfer case and washer fluid. Just stop by within 3,000 miles of your service mileage and we will top off up to 2 quarts per fluid, as needed.

The option to take a little more off is a standard part of a haircut, so all good.

guacamole

this is definitely the closest but the lime juice macerates it a bit (when I make guac I soak the onion and jalaps for a few minutes before mixing in the rest but I'm sure not everyone does this)

still I think guac qualifies as a topping

plastic grocery sacks under the sink.
We never take them anywhere to recycle them and it just fills up and spills out until I get tired of it and trash them.  :angry:
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Pro tip: use those plastic bags for poopy diapers
