What evidence is there that the stuff he shows is anything but waste, deliberately thrown out? How do we know this isn't some fired employee, trying
to trash the company? If there is any truth to anythign he says, then it would be discovered, and actions taken.
I am kind of shocked that you posted this comment, LGE. Yes, you are correct, but do you really think the pictures look like the food has been
trashed, and do you really doubt this is real? Is it that unbelievable that a restaurant would hide things during an inspection?
This is from the GOLDEN CORRAL. The name alone mocks every person that walks through it's doors. Seriously, who is kept in a corral?
LIvestock.....sheep come to mind, and pigs.
One, there is NO proof that the place is readying for an inspection, save the word of a guy that could easily be a disgruntled employee, who, please
note, NEVER goes INSIDE the place. A current employee could have easily walked in, with a cell phone cam in their hand.
Two, this stuff is piled out there, in racks mostly, of the sort that are used to clear tables. We see those and a bin of meat. The racks could have
been wheeled out during a rush, to get it out of the way, so the flies weren't drawn to it INSIDE the restaurant, with a plan to send someone out to
dump the stuff into the dumpster after the rush. It's also possible that THIS guy wheeled it out there, instead of cleaning it up properly, and got
canned for doing so. The tray of meat could easily be spoiled, moved, again, during a rush, or, again, could be something HE placed there, that he
should not have.
Three, this guy has a really bad attitude, and I don't mean like a whistle blower. I am well aware that places can have real infractions. I am also
aware that people fired can, and do, often spread lies about a place, to try and get some sort of sick revenge. I have SEEN this. His attitude
reminds me of the people I have known did such a thing.
Four, the name of COURSE refers to animals; to the ones we EAT. "Golden" makes it sound better, and "Corral" refers to where livestock are
brought. In this case, the clear reference is that this is where the prime meats can be found, for your enjoyment. It isn't calling the people
If this guy had gone inside, and shown something out of order there, his claims would be more credible. If any sort of proof of any health code
violations was offered, he would be more credible. When places have real issues, the authorities DO become involved. I have talked to people that
worked in such places. One case, a McDonald's was being run very poorly, so much so that they lost the franchise, and the corporate offices took it
over. When issues were reported, things changed. Here, we have some stuff by a dumpster, and nothing else, and a lot of unsubstantiated claims. The
rule is, "innocent until proven guilty". Personally, I apply that to cases like this as well as people. IF some proof that there are real
infractions is produced, for whichever GC this is (and note, he didn't say), then, and only then, can we trust that there is a real problem with THAT
location. Not with all GC locations, but with one. With nothing but what looks like trash at a dumpster, and a lot of claims? Nope; doesn't even
come close to proof.
Do you really think it isn't possible for a disgruntled former employee to lie? Think about it. We have no way to know, from that video. I will
reserve judgment till proof is presented.
