    ...do you still eat it?

    While scrolling through the posts here I came across something hard in a protein bar I was eating. I spit it out and washed all the gunk off of it. It looked like a pebble sized peice of broken tooth, bone, or plastic. Cecked my teeth and all is well. I said skrew it, threw the peice away and finished the bar.

    Now I think I'm gonna die in a couple of hours.
     
  2. I was enjoying a bowl of chilli at a local coffee shop once, and when i got to the bottom i found a lid for a cup used for fountain pop. I figured it wasnt going to kill me so i finnished off what was left and then i brought it up to the counter and they gave me another bowl of chili on them. Which kicks butt, cause i love chili :)
    I dont think weird stuff in my food would really bother me too much, as long as it wasnt something nasty like a rodents head or blood at the bottom of oatmeal or something.(100 points to whomever names the 80's movie in which im referring too about the oatmeal) :D
     
  3. A couple years ago at my high school, a girl i know was sitting down to lunch with a cafeteria garden salad. As she muched away she found and odd textured piece in the salad. She spit out the piece and found it to be a pice of one of the lunch lady's fingers!!! The lunch lady apparently cut off part of her finger making something and it fell in the salad and didn't care to go looking for it or file a report. The girl passed out immediately and there was a huge stink about it with the school and the company that hired the workers. It made news and from what i have seen it made the news in Japan as well!! :eek: :eek:

    It's pretty common to find rocks in foods that have beans in them. Something about the machines that harvest beans picks up small pebbles along with the beans, and then it ends up in your burrito. Not too much harm in that unless you chomp down real hard.

    I can't remember finding strange things in my food, but I definitely don't have a problem eating food that has fallen on the floor. More protein down there.

    I haven't found all that many odd things in my food, which probably means I've eaten a lot of strange things.

    I've eaten all kinds of stuff, so finding something odd in my food doesn't bother me.

    And back to the topic, I hate it when I find a vein in my food. It is usually in ham, hot dogs, sausage. Sometimes I can eat around it, but usually not.

    There's a ground (drops pebble), There's no ground in here.

    Great movie, totally 80's CG with the snake chick and the demon at the end.


    On subject

    I used to work at a restaurant that had chili that was so greasy it formed a 4-5 inch thick grease layer at the top of the pot when it warmed up. It was totally nasty, especially when I witnessed somebody paying another person to drink/eat/ingest a soup bowl full of pure thick grease.

    I have not posted the name of the restaurant or the person to protect the innocent. :D
