Waiter, there is a fly in my soup...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by DiG, Jul 6, 2005.


  1. Ugh... today I was eating a vietnamese soup resturant (really extremely good too, best soup ever)... and I was mixing up the hot sauce (chunky chili type sauce) and I see something yellow and stripy kindof like a bee. At first I think, haha weird this pepper looks like a bee, then I flip it around to check it out more, and it has giant wings, its a big ****ing moth. I got shivers all through my body. I was mortified !!! I still ate my soup, but didn't use hot sauce. I didn't enjoy the soup as much as a usually do though.

    Anyone else have a similiar experience?

    um whyd you still eat it. Dont moths haave powder that waterproofs their wings that most likely rubbed off all over your soup.

    That's nothing. At work, some lady found a live bee in her bag of romaine lettuce. She returned it and got a refund :p.

    I work at a Domino's, and I don't think we have ever had anything bad happen.

    I once worked at Dominos. I had 2 pizza's thrown at me by a woman who discovered she had the wrong order. What a psycho.

    Yeah, I haven't had any of those. I delievered a pizza that was too done, and they stopped me just before I pulled away. They told me it was burned, so I apologized, and told them I would make them another. I also asked if they wanted anything extra. I ended up giving them some cinna stix for free for the trouble. They gave me a good tip, still. That's customer service.

    that is good service! Makes me think twice about the Snow Crash style pizza service I've been wishing for... ;)
     
  9. That's Pizza Huts customer service policy.
     
  10. I work in the hospitality industry. We don't usually charge any extra for moths etc..... :D

    True. There are a lot of places that will do that kind of thing, I know. But there are just as many that won't. Policy or not, I'd still do it. Actually, I forgot a lady's diet coke (she ordered 2), and she was staying at a hotel, so I went down the hall and bought her 2 more. I was actually having a really bad day, but making her happy, and how nice she was (and she was attractive, too :p) made my day much, much better.

  14. A friend of mine opened up a can of Campbell's soup and found some moths or flies of some sort had nested in it. He called the customer satisfaction line, explained the story, and they sent him like 5 coupons for free soup.
     
  15. I heard someone found a severed human finger in a bowl of Wendy's Chili.

    Yeah.. she did find the severed finger in her soup... AFTER she put it there...

    She got a severed finger froma co-worker of her husband who lost it in an industrial accident, and slipped it in.

    They got her because:
    1) The Wendy's in question, as well as all suppliers did not report any industrial accidents involving severed fingers
    2) The finger did not appear as though it had simmered in chili for an extended period of time
    3) She's got a history of crazy litigation in the past.

    She dropped her claim. I can't recall if they are still going after her for fraud.

    Once in Chinatown I picked up my menu, and a cockroach crawled from the back of the menu, over the top while I was reading it.

    In Mr. Greenjean (a restaurant chain - not sure if they're still around), just finished ordering our food, when I look to the plants by the side (dividing the booths), and a mouse looks up at me.

    I've never found anything inside my food though...

    Oh, there was that one time I found a human finger in my Wendy's chili. ;) edit: oh man. you guys beat me to the punch.

    Oh man, I forgot - a friend of the drummer in my band once found this really, really sharp piece of plastic in a McFlurry. It look like it came from a piece of machinery. Unfortunately he never followed up.
