Eat it... yeah it's a pity to throw it away... others don't have food to eat u know... ok if it's just a fry... but if someone throws away a whole damn sausage for xample he/she needs to receive some punches in my opinion...

Food is food. I eat it.

Depends on what kind of food it is and where I drop it. At home, I eat practically everything I accidentally drop on the floor. I wipe our kitchen floor every few days and my girlfriend and me only walk around in socks, so it's pretty clean. I would just hold it under the water quickly and then eat it.
If I'm inside a restaurant and I drop something, I don't eat it because the floor there is not clean (to many people in shoes walking around).
If I'm outside, especially on a cobblestone street or some other place where not thousands of people pass by every day, I actually worry less than inside a restaurant. But when I'm outside, it also depends a bit on what I drop. For example I wouldn't eat a french fry or a piece of sausage that I drop outside but I would certainly eat a fruit or a piece of bread that I drop (basically, relatively dry things are okay).
Back when I was a kid, I was a member of my local boy scouts for several years and we spent lots and lots of time in the forest. During that time, I must have eaten tons of "dirt". We would drink out of rain puddles and sometimes, some boys threw leaves or bugs or soil from the ground into the big pot where we were cooking soup. It wasn't really something that worried or disgusted me and I believe it might even have strengthened my immune system. So, I don't mind "natural dirt", I just mind human dirt such as dust and hair lying on the floor and stuff like that. That's why I wouldn't pick up something in a public building and eat it.1
