How do you react when you grind any hard particle in your mouthful?

Hey myLotter friends! This idea came into my mind last night when I was having supper with my family. It was a very good dish of meat which I was taking with rice. I was enjoying my meal as meat is favourite dish. All on a sudden, I felt like crashing on something very hard particle being ground between my teeth which interrupted me in my enjoyment of the delicious meal. When I took it closer to my eyes, I discovered that it was a tiny particle of stone. Then I spat out my mouthful and rinsed my mouth with water and kept silent for a few moments to forget the impact of the incident, and then started eating again.This is a very common phenomenon in my country. Tiny particles of grit, metal, brick or any other substances are often found in foods. There is no such person who has never experienced this kind of event in his/her entire life. Have you ever had any?

Broken teeth. - Bad teeth, not taking care of. Brush atleast twice a day. Be careful what you eat.
Cant say this really happens very often to me, unless I am cooking the meal ( not a top chef). But it has happened, the first thing I worry about is it something from the food or is it another part of my teeth falling out. As much as I look after my teeth, they are still very weak so I have to be very careful what I eat / chew. Interesting topic, something different and new for a change.

Hey Guy, You gave the most different response to my discussion. But in fact, losing tooth isn't a pleasant experience. I hope you'll have your teeth fixed by a an expert dentist. Strong teeth are essential for enjoying delicious foods. Have a nice eating.

Sometimes when I eat hamburger meat I'll come across one pice like that. I simply spit it out and promptly forget about it. Such things don't bother me. Sometimes if I find something hard in my food I'll show it to George. I normally only do this in foods I don't generally find things such as foods I eat when ordering out. I only do that to make him aware of the possibility of it being in his food, but then.... forget about it later on.

Hey friend! As to bakery items, I can add that once I found a piece of metal in a bread/bun. I scolded the baker and he gave another bread for free. You said in these cases you show it to George. Who is this 'George' anyway, your husband or friend. Moreover, your response isn't clear to me. Happy eating!

Of course, i already experience it and i think it could not be avoided since some of our food we eat are loaded with other debris, commonly from rice since most Asian eat it. All I have do is to either spit it or just take it on my mouth while i cover my mouth. or maybe if you have a tooth pick you could remove it. Particles such as sand, or hard crumbs, like fish skeleton, of form meat tiny bones they are so annoying when they are trap in between your teeth especially if you accidentally swallow it so if their if it happen to me I just gargle with water and spit it. this declogged in my teeth and just continue again to enjoy your meal!Happy eating

Yes, my friend. Your comment is very much correct. There won't be a single person who never had such experience. If these these tiny stones can be sorted out carefully this type of mishaps don't happen. Thanks a lot for your advice. Happy cooking.

It must came from the rice, here in our country it is a common scenario if you did not clean and wash well the rice before cooking. Sometimes there are small insects like rice fleas found in the cooked rice. Make sure that your rice is cleaned and washed well before cooking so as not to experience it again.

Yes, my friend! You're 100% correct about the stone particles. They are found in the rice and cause an interruption in our eating. Than you very much for your response. Have a nice day!

Wow, I have not experienced that with food as I don't eat out a lot and also that I have been lucky to not have anything inside my meal that is out of the ordinary. If I do, I reckon I might bring it up with the store where I bought it from or if I'm in a restaurant I will let the waiting staff know. As it is unlikely here for me, I am sorry to hear that happens frequently to you.

Hey my friend KHAN. I think you're too young to judge me as there is gap of ages between us. You're 18 and I'm 36. You've just started learning and I've learned a lot from life already and will learn more in future. I'm not a bad-tempered person that I'll get hurt so easily. Allah sent me to this world with an enormous amount of patience. I can wait for a very long time even after someone forgets to reply me. I had faith on Allah that one day He will remind you of your doings. Well, you said that you don't spit out any food even if there is a stone, metal bit in it. Sounds like you're a disciple of any specific Dervish. My guess may prove to be wrong. Don't mind. And your style of staying different from others is really amusing. Have a great day!

This is a common experience in many of the foods that i have eaten so far, whether it is a regular meal or a snack etc. I guess when the food articles are made ready to be cooked a little dirt does go into them in the form of sand particles or little bits of metal, wood etc. I have even found small pieces of matchsticks and even a rusted metal nail in certain snacks. Those who ccoks sometimes are careless and sometimes do not clean the basic ingredients properly which allows such stuff to creep into the food.Many a times human hair also makes its way into the food and this is the most irritating of them all. I am sure each and every person on earth must have got this distasteful thing in theirfood sometime or the other. the worst thing about hair is that it can get lodged in your throat and choke you.It has to be drawn out and with it much of the food too. Those who cook should wear a cap so that their hair doesn`t make its way into the food.Other items can be spat out immediately but hair is the most repulsive of them all.

Well, my friend. The case of stone grits, metals, woods can be explained this way. The rice producers of our country who don't have place for drying up paddy use the highroads and thus the grits gets mixed up with it. The grits may also come from the grinding stones of the rice husking mills. And talking about other incidents of such as nails, screws, buttons, glasses etc. take place because of cooking in an inappropriate environment. But fortunately, I've never had any experience of hair-eating, if happens, it will bee very unpleasant for me. Usually the hair gets caught red-handed in my hand instead of going to my mouth. I can't think of having someone's hair in my mouth. It's so disgusting that it may ruin the mood of eating. Happy eating!

Oh my gosh I hate when this happens. On the few times that it has happened to me I am not able to finish my meal when this happens. Most of the time when it happens to me is when I am eating a meal that involves chicken. It seems to me that chicken is the hardest to have without bones in it. The other thing that has happened to me is that I will be enjoying a meal and where I've had dental work done in the past a piece of that will chip out and I'll feel like I am chewing on that.

Well, my friend! You're so lucky that you've got only the bones of the chicken, not any foreign property like particles of stone, brick, metal, plastic, wood etc. which are not desirable at all. Tiny bones in the meat is very common phenomenon in our country. People don't mind about bone bits they mind about the above mentioned things. And chewing on one's own tooth is a very amusing experience. Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha.... Have a nice eating.
