Is it ok to take (or request) a second portion at a Simcha ? Will it cost the bal simcha more as a result ?

Doubtful. The caterer would probably only give what otherwise is leftovers. They do however charge for extra people, even if the food would be leftover.

Then by me taking seconds somebody else later on would be considered “extra people” thereby costing him more, no ?

I go to 7-Eleven quite often to buy (a slurpee)/slurpees.

 Many times I buy 3/4 big slurpees and take 6 7 straws to divide it up later.
 Another thing I do is many times even when the light is not lit red on the machine, the slush/slurpee is in it's liquid form hence not ready to be used yet, so what I do is turn the handle to see what texture the slurpee is and if it's at the right texture I'll fill up my cup.

 So my two questions, can I take more straws then cups?
As well can I test the slurpee machine to see if it's ready or do I have to take the Gamble and take the slurpee liquid even when the light is not on?
  I am looking at it like going to the grocery and tasting the grapes to see if they're fresh if they're fresh I'll take it, if it's not fresh I'm not going to take the bunch.

You don't?
 Have you ever watched someone buy a bunch of grapes?
 That's one thing I'm not crazy for doing. Look at anyone buying grapes and you will see them sampling it.

 Just google that question about grapes and see how many answers and topics you will find.

I go to a 7-11 where they hand out straws at the register, and although they always give one per slurpee, they will give extra if you ask.

All jokes aside I'm sure many taste the grapes before buying.

In most stores I buy it in, if in facts it's not sweet and tasty I'll be returning it.
 Let them weight it again when returning to see what I ate and give me the difference from what I ate to what I returned.
   One problem is when buying a bunch of grapes that taste good I won't be paying for the 2 grapes I tasted.

I still don't see a reason why tasting them should be allowed.

Even though it's likely that the manager would let you taste it if you seriously want to buy grapes you still have to ask before.

To tell you the truth I never really thought about it, I did it because that's what I saw when growing up and went shopping for grapes.
  When it comes to grapes where it's a cluster of fifty to a hundred grapes I taste one to know if I should buy the whole cluster or if I should take only half the cluster, by tasting one of the grapes. Now in regards to an apple an orange a lemon and onion each apple each lemon is its own thing, so in that scenario there's not what to taste.
   and believe it or not when it came to cherries just like the grapes when it's an open bag and it's made for people to touch and taste I did the same thing before buying a bag of (Cherries).

  Now in regards to strawberries blueberries and all the berries which came in a container and it was closed I wouldn't open it, it's only where the bags were open and where they would assume customers would go ahead and taste the product before buying that's where I went ahead and tasted, as that's the reason why they leave it open for people to go ahead and taste.

Since no one else "tastes" grapes before buying them, then don't assume that the store owners give permission to do so.
