Inspired by the wedding gift question below:
Do you agree with this chart of who pays for what in a wedding? How did you split costs?

I need an egg to make corn bread, and I ran out this morning. My neighbor's out, too. My rooommate has a carton in the fridge, and I sent him a text asking if I could have an egg. I think he's in class, though, so who knows when he'll respond. I don't absolutely need to make corn bread now, but within an hour if I want to eat it with dinner. Should I just grab it or wait until he says okay? (If it's important, we aren't really friends, but we're civil.)

EDIT: He sent me a text back.
