A: “May I have some” and “can I take” mean the same thing. Asking permission if it is ok for you to take something.

The main difference would be “may I have some” is when the other person has something more than one or you are only asking for a little bit.
For example: - May I have some of your bread?
- May I have some drink?
- May I have some of your pins?

“Can I take” is asking permission if you can take something.

- Can I take this water?
- Can I take this shirt?

However, you can still use either one “take” or “have”
- Can I have this book?

They can be used one or the other, but there are times when for example you are talking to a stranger, it is a matter of manners in which “may I have” seems to be more polite or courteous.
Q: ¿Qué significa last straw?
A: that you cannot tolerate something any longer. the last thing that happened was the last thing you will tolerate
