Taking a Bath in the Restaurant Sink, Thats Why I Prefer to Eat at Home

So, has anyone seen the news yesterday, about the Burger King employee who video taped , then posted himself taking a bath in the sink at the Burger King he worked at. Now, sure it isnt a fine dining place, but it amazes me what goes on in the kitchen. I think the only way to guarantee a trustworthy meal is to cook it yourself in your own kitchen, assuming you dont bath in the sink either.

It appears they fired the guy, and also got rid of the kitchen items he soiled, but it still keeps me wondering what goes on in the kitchen before I get my meals.

Either that guy is small or that is a big sink. I prefer eating at home mostly because I like my own cooking .

That's why we dine out bi-monthly.

The article is here:
Odd News - Ohio Burger King worker fired for bathing in sink

I saw this when I saw the fake baby article......

What can I say..."Have It Your Way"! LOL!

(Maybe thats why that McD's pic that was in yesterday's 'Blue Hair' thread is being remodeled - Sinks for everyone!?! LOL!)

That's just nasty! We hardly ever eat out as it is because DH likes my cooking. I guess he has a point. I NEVER bathe in the sink.

another Burger King story...

We were standing in line and one of the people in front of us was a homeless man.
He bought some fries and went and sat down. A few minutes later he walked to the front of the line and complained that his fries had pepper on them. The worker dude took the fries back...AND THREW THEM BACK IN THE BOX WITH THE REST OF THE FRIES!!!! Needless to say...we left with out getting food!

My son and his wife came home from a trip and were grossed out over this:

They were offered a first class seat for $100 during a flight to Florida. It was a breakfast flight and of course came with a complete meal. My son had finished most of his breakfast but left one slice of bacon and most of his scrambled eggs.
The man sitting across from my son had fallen asleep and just before he woke up the flight attendant realized that there were no more eggs. She took my son's plate, scraped off the remaining bacon and eggs and put it in front of the sleeper waking him up. They were so grossed out over this they will refuse any airline food now. They are both sorry they didn't tell the passenger about it.

I fly first class but I always book the first seat and because of that I get served first. I ain't takin any chances.
That's just plain crude!!!!

Back during the 70's I had a friend who worked the graveyard shift at a Jack-In-The-Box.
He used to tell me what they did with the burger patties before serving them to some of these high school punks who frequented the drive thru in the middle of the night.
Since he told me this I have not gone to a JITB ever since...

If you don't see it, you won't know. We had people in family employed working in kitchens. No wonder they all prefer to eat at home. It would just really gross you out especially if someone complained about anything. I just wonder if they wouldn't taste a difference in the meal? The way people retaliate really bothers me. How can they sleep at night?


Oh saw a show called 'Cheaters' where an employee urinated in the bosses coffee and the boss didn't notice it. then they showed him the video and got mad then. The employee was having affair with the bosses wife. I just don't understand how people can live with themselves after doing this.

Hope I never made anyone sick but when I see something I just can't forget.
