One of my more hideous experiences involved a human part in food. Four years ago I was working for a firm that did technical support for Internet
Service Providers. Office events such as charity fund raisers were fairly common place. So this one time a girl on our team brings in a tray of warm
home made Samosas. It's a little fried pastry with a savory filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils, ground lamb, ground beef or
ground chicken. She was of South Asian origin, so this was a traditional dish for her. People were raving about them, and I bought one.
I bit into it and hit something rock hard. It really hurt actually and when I pulled the object out of my mouth it was a human back tooth. Obviously
my first thought was - damn, that is big tooth to lose, this is going to ruin my day. So I go to the bathroom to check my teeth. None missing. I'm
starting to panic and check them again and again. No tooth missing. The thought that this is not my tooth hits me and I feel faint. I look at it
again, hoping it was a cow tooth or something... nope human. I threw the tooth in the bin and never mentioned it to anybody ever. My ex-work colleague
still don't know.
Sadly, I'm a bit of coward. I couldn't face the absolute mayhem it would have caused if I had accused a work colleague of shoving human remains into
Samosas and getting everybody to eat them.
