The Questionable Handling Of Food At A Restaurant.

Do You Ever Wonder What's Going On Back In The Kitchen? A camera phone video posted to a Facebook group involving employees of a Dairy Queen shows some of them cavorting in the empty restaurant. In one scene, an employee drops his pants and bares his bottom outside the takeout window. The employee continues about his work, without - at least immediately - washing his hands. I myself, once met a man who worked at an A&W Burgers when he was a teen. He told me they used to spit in the gravy. I still DO NOT like that man and am thankful I will most likely never run into him again. I had never really given it a thought before then. What kind of person does that?

I think even the fancier restaurants doesn't mean no short cuts. On Hell's Kitchen on chef wne to the garbage and took spaghetti noodles out of the garbage and was going to serve it until the others stopped her. And this is a top class server on national tv. Imagine what happens when they fall behind and no one is looking. I think the key is don't eat when the place is extremely busy and never be rude to your servers. Spit is the least of my worries from an angry food server.

I have worked in fast food before, so I know first hand what some of those employees are capable of if not supervised properly. In both of the stories you told it is a matter of the person in charge not controlling their employees. I try to only go to fast food places where the employees seem nice and the management is out working among the employees, so there is less of a chance of something gross happening.

Prevention is worth an ounce.

Anyone who's ever worked fast food knows how bad it really can be back there. If I eat fast food I know I am eating at my own risk as I've seen first hand tricks of the trade to revive dropped food, and many other tricks, shortcuts and really messed up people working there. I don't know what I would do if I were a cop because I know they get it the worst. I guess it'd be a brown bag lunch every day.

Honestly, I try to not think about what kitchens look like. We are really picky about the places we eat, but you really never know what happens in the kitchen.
