It hopefully wasn't stolen. The waiter/busboy might've just thought you were done with your meal. Unless someone said "here's a half-eaten plate of food. I want it." Either way, I'd be pretty sad to lose my food.
That's when you throw your table at them on their way out the door, assuming you have the timing right and they haven't already gotten away.
Because all normal people's first reaction would be to throw something at the thief making away with their food. And clearly, if you had to choose something to throw, that would be... your table. I would like to be able to say I understand where you're going with this, but that would be a bit of an overstatement.
You could take comfort in the fact that you fed some starving person, albeit involuntarily. Of course, they really just probably pawned your food for crack, beer and hookers.
You beat me to it. I was going to say, if someone is desperate enough to steal your half eaten sandwich (I know op doesn't say what she is eating, but for argument sake, let's say its a sandwich) they need it more than you do. I would just suck it up and get another one, despite how sacred I consider my meals to be.
