When my son was 16 he worked after school at McDonalds. he told me that the workers were always spitting in the food and drinks and other stuff to bad to tell me. He didn't tell me this at the time mind you but many years later!

Here is a recipe for disaster:
My Brother-in-Law
Pathological Narcissist
Cared deeply about EVERYONE, as long as they were him.
Job at Burger King.
P.O.'d at the world.
Food-Grade Bucket of Pickle chips.
Did I mention, P.O.'d at the world?

I worked in a couple of restaurants many years ago. What is shown here is nothing. People are unaware what goes on in the kitchens of restaurants. Just because you can see into a kitchen means nothing either, most things happening are below the levels of the openings we see through.

It doesn't make any difference what prices are on the menu. One of the places I worked was in an expensive supper club.

Ok, licking taco shells is not recommended food saftey protocol, but on the other hand, things could be worse. I used to work at a frozen food retail outlet, here in the UK.

Although we had a focus on frozen items, we also had a pretty extensive range of chilled goods, deli meats, cheeses, and so on and so forth. Amongst this plethora of chilled food, were the whole chickens. Now, as anyone who has worked in a similar environment will attest, rotation of stock is important. Making sure the sell by dates are carefully monitored, and putting the items with the most rapidly approaching dates toward the front, is pretty much essential to prevent excesses of waste.

And so it was, that one summers morning I went into work and was asked by my supervisor to assist in the rotation of the entire chiller cabinet. Things went well, progress was swift. Some items had to be taken off the shelves because they had already been reduced to clear, and had failed to do so, but up until reaching the whole chicken section, nothing untoward had been discovered. This was soon to change.

Halfway through the rotation of the chicken section, I noted that one chicken appeared to have a more ragged looking hole in it, than the others. Upon further inspection, both ends of the bird appeared to be somewhat... tired looking when compared with the others on the shelf. I stopped work on the general rotation at that point, and took a further, even more detailed look at the chicken before me, lifting it up to peer inside the body cavity. What I saw was somewhat concerning. The chicken appeared to be flooded with a thick, white substance, which wobbled like jelly when the bird was moved. Upon comparison with the other chickens of the same class, it became obvious that this was not supposed to be the case.

I called my supervisor over, and showed her what I had found. She went pale, and asked me to take the chicken to the managers office...

I will not bore you with the details of how things proceeded after that, but the upshot was that several employees of the packaging facility, used by our company to package our chilled produce, were fired for "tampering" with the food, and refered to the police. What these guys had done, in case you had not figured it out, was basically sexually assaulted the corpse of this chicken, and flooded it with... unmentionables.

Would love to see the fluctuation in stock/share value for Taco Bell after this image catches on with MSM

There was a case here in New Mexico from years ago where a Taco Bell empoyee was adding his own semen to the sour cream each day. I am surprised it never made national news. More recently a man was handing out samples o yogurt at a supermarket here that was tainted in the same way. A less disgusting additive that was put in food around here was when a Burger King employee added marijuana to the burgers of the local officers. He was not thinking clearly to try to get away with that one!

You know what is funny? That he thinks he's the only one who has ever done anything disgusting like that. Wherever he is getting his own fast food from, there is probably an imbecile just like himself spitting in his burger, thinking that nobody ever had such a 'funny' idea. Duh!
Once they realize, they would have learned a valid lesson in life.

Uh, seriously, what makes you think that never happens at Chipotle.

Well, unless they lick the dough see them the whole time they are preparing it, so not really an opportunity. Of course, you don't see it before they put the other ingredients in those prepped containers.....

You do know that isn't beef in Taco Bell dishes, right? It is "Taco Meat Filling". It is only 36% beef.

If you ever want to eat at Taco Bell again, do NOT click this link:

So many customers don't realize that we are in control of their food. Why piss off the person feeding you? Not saying that this is acceptable behavior matter how rude a customer might be.

Oh you make such a good point with that! I believe I am going to make a mental note of that to say the next time I'm around someone making a fool of themselves by abusing restaurant staff over petty stuff. Indeed...That's a very sobering thought. Kitchen people do have their ways of exacting revenge on foolish customers, don't they?

I grew up eating a lot of fast food. The worst was a long black hair in my McDonald's cheese burger. The problem is that a lot of fast food restaurants are not run properly. I have to been to a lot of junk restaurants that had lazy workers and nasty junk.

You have a hell of allot more to worry about then a small piece of hair. Do you know whats in that food? Why is it so cheap? Your on this site so I am assuming you naturally want to know. Google, you will never go to another fast food corporation again.

No, I know what you're saying. I also think it's a lot to deal with all the customers wanting different orders. The companies and franchises make good amount of profit. But I wish there was a better way in organizing the business.

It's fast food.

The orders are set and ready.

Take the order, take the money and fill the bag.

That's it. Not rocket science.

No, it's the ass-hats working at the counters that are responsible for their own actions.

I hate fast food take-outs but it's still a job. If you don't like your employer then at least respect your friends and neighbors that eat there.


How can you respect some one that does not respect them self?

You get what you pay for. You aren't going to get a $1 taco at Chipotle...but then, you won't be getting 36% beef either...

It's taco bell, I would expect this behavior from the young people working in fast food because for the a good portion of teens, they just don't risk this behavior at any fast food chain so it should be no real shock...

I'm sure this happens in more than just fast food restaurants. I hear horror stories all the time about what disgruntled cooks do in other restaurants.

Oh yes. I mean, who does that to the corpse of a chicken in any case, let alone one that is intended for human consumption? There is something deeply wrong with humanity, but there again, the Romans showed us that, by exporting child abuse to the world. Dont like your kids behavior? Just cut his throat. If he gets a little old for that, just bugger him into submission....

And educated people credit those morons with civilising vast swathes of Europe and the wider world? Is it any wonder that in these modern times, people will behave in such incomprehensible ways?

Mankinds been eighty percent screwed for a long time. I think the idea is to try and avoid it rubbing off on you as you continue through life. I suppose motivation to successfully avoid that would be "Dont be a douche... you may end up screwing a dead chicken."

Oh, and while we are on the subject of Taco Bell, I am not sure how many of my esteemed fellow members from the States are aware of this, but there are actually a few Taco Bell outlets here in blighty. I will never eat in one, not because I am a snob, but because upon returning from such an outlet, a friend declared to me the following things:

Friend: "Dude... everything except the salad came out of a pump."

Me:"What like the salsa and the cheese? I can kind of understa...."

Friend:"Dude no... you dont get it. EVERYTHING came out of a pump... the meat, the cheese, the salsa, all the toppings come out of these push pumps, up on this rack they have in the serving area...Oh JESUS... I gota run..."

FX: Running feet, door slams open, door slams closed, lock engages, sound of prolapse level bowel movement.
