Just got back from filing a police report.

I think tomorrow I'll look up health inspection records.

And I think I'll call the main and Ohio HQ.

If you think those pictures are descriptive and disgusting be glad they have been cropped, resampled much smaller and reduced in detail for easier web viewing. I could link these graphics to a full sized, 2kx3k JPG or NEF (raw data) file(s) of the fryer.

I think you are doing the right thing. I know it wasn't easy but kudos for taking action.

Well, you must stay within the boundary of the law.

For those of you wondering why I work at the Frat 12 hours a week, if I couldn't get a job someplace else, and so on, I'm a Vet, worked on ICBMs, hold an Aircraft Mechanics License (Formerly the A&P), two degrees and am puttering towards a third. I don't need to put up with the situation for their chump change.

Its about making a difference and turning the place around.
What is this thread about? I live in the UK and cannot make head nor tail about the original posting/first mesage but would like to know so that I might respond.

Help - What is a "Frat 12 hours a week". We can all get a job somewhere else so I know what this means. VET - clearly this means a verterinarian but I have no knowledege of what an "ICBMs" means. Anyone like to help me out here.

I`m tempted to say "PACE" in the best Roman/Latin tradition.

Mea culpa,
Archidiuc

W - it had to be hard to do that.

Those who blow the whistle rarely get thanks. And their efforts often do not get noticed because the horrible events they prevented never happened.

You did the right thing. Sorry about the loss of job, but you knew that was coming.

Time to just move on. God speed and good luck.

My brother used to work in a particulary revolting mexican themed restruant and had similar descriptions of stuff... and people alawys get sick there.... they just think the margharitas are too strong though!

lol, chef june. i know people are busy. i thought that was a better way of typing "bump" to bring this thread to attention.

and i didn't read through it closely either. sorry you lost the job, wart. but you can take pride in the fact you did the right thing, in the face of adversity. a lesser man might have just backed down.

this world could use more people like you. and fewer kitchens that look like that. yuk.

You need to read these to catch up:

Frat Fish Thawing
Frat Salisbury Steak

Vet here means a military veteran. ICBM means intercontinental ballistic missile. HTH.

And heres the topper,

I just checked my score on the ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Examination.

Seems I missed one question. I don't quite believe it, I was unsure of the answers on 8 questions.

The bottom line is I can't be in that kitchen unless they clean up their act.

And they lost their best shot at cleaning it up.
