Default Is this gross?

Is it gross to put something (food or drink) in your mouth, realize it's not hot enough, spit it out, then reheat it?

Argument A: It's just going back in your mouth, so who cares if your saliva is already on it.

Argument B: It's gross and then your germs are going to spray all over the microwave.

Why are you spitting it back into the container vs. in the trash? I find re-consuming my own saliva to be pretty gross in itself.

I have a coworker that does that and everyone thinks it's really disgusting. Don't do it at work

It's not so much about the germs as it is that seeing food that's been in a mouth is gross.

This. If you do it alone and no one ever knows about it, no harm no foul.

What is this you are eating that's so horrible to be consumed cold? I guess a hot meal that is still fridge temp would be pretty bad, but I'd put that bite in the trash.
