    To me, that's a favor. If someone does something for you or gives you something (even if you asked) when they didn't have to, that's considered a favor.

    so wait, if you give me a bite of food, i have to at a later date give you a bite of food? what if you're hit by a bus, do I have to leave a bite of sandwich at your grave?

    I can't speak for everyone, but I have not asked for many things I want. It's because I hate feeling like I am in anyone's debt. I like being in the black socially.

    No, but if I ask you for a favor at a later date, you might feel more obliged because you ate my burrito. Btw, restaurants take advantage of this feeling of indebtedness by giving people mints. Restaurants that give mints get about a 10% increase in tips, because the patrons don't want to feel indebted to them.

    You're thinking about it far too formally. It's the possibility of indebtedness. Sure, most people who give you a bite of a burrito are going to forget it the next day. But you you can avoid the chance altogether by not having the bite.

    but i'm always willing to commit favors, if I like you. and if i asked for a bite of your burrito it means i like you, because i'm taking the time to spend time with you and talk to you

    but if i only want a bite, and i buy a whole burrito then i'll have to throw most of it out. i think i'll risk it.

    If you don't ask, you are already telling yourself "no". Better to let the other person do it if it is going to happen; it's probably their job, after all.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
