    I've seen someone take a cockroach and smash it into a burger at Wendys.

    I've seen more spit go into Pizza than I'd like to remember. Also seen a guy scratch his ass with some utensils then serve food with them.

    I've seen food dropped on a dirty floor, picked up and placed back into the production line.

    Wendy's chili is just old hamburgers they didn't sell. Just saying.

    Caught a kid jerking off once when I worked at Tacobell. He was working there as well and used the cooler as his personal spank booth. Never cleaned up after himself, just left it on the floor or wherever it landed.

    When I worked at Wendy's you could smoke in there. Employee's too. The chili pot was an ashtray most of the time.

    Honestly, Wendy's and Pizza hut were the two dirtiest places I have ever worked at. I haven't eaten Wendy's in over 16 years and I'll never eat there again.

    Tip for everyone. Don't take back your food unless you can watch them make it again for you. Don't piss off the person bringing you food before you already have it. After you have your food, be a dick if you feel the need.

    McD many many years ago. I had to get any job because I was on bad times.
    It was clean though so no horror stories here.
    Everyone was pretty meticulous about cleanliness. Good management, proper training. The usual stupid ass teenagers working there.
    Opened and closed cook areas.
    The only gross thing I really saw was some chick dropped a non-flushable dookie and I had bathroom detail that morning

    Worked at a subway while in high school. Nothing bad to mention except that I got locked in the freezer for 1hr and there were some customers that need a high five....with a chair....in the face.

    I also second the rule of not messing with the person handling your food. It's the difference between an ok meal or contracting something from their spit.

    Worked at a Taco Bell during high school. We ran a very clean restaurant compared to other locations. Not gonna lie we did do some nasty stuff, but only to those that deserved it.

    worked at a DQ and a McD's. Didnt do much foul play to customers food, at DQ the food defiantly is not very good though! Old fries? Oh you complained? *sticks old fries in deep fryer for 30 seconds*
    A lot of people don't wash their hands enough though when working in those joints. Touching shit and stuff and don't think twice before making your burger.

    I bet we'd all be shocked if we knew what we have eaten at even so called fine establishments.

    A buddy of mine worked at a so called fine establishment. They reused the served salad if it looked okay.
    I just don't fuck with others food. Kinda like never mess with another man's wheels.

    I worked at an Italian restaurant. The GM and my kitchen manager were always on the spot with keeping the kitchen clean. We never messed with the food. When i would walk into the neighboring kitchens to trade food. i was suprised that their kitchens were so dirty. Bad management.I did see a cook snort a line of coke off the line once.

    I worked at Taco Bell with 6 of my buddies. we all applied at the same time and acted like we didnt know each other. we had the entire joint to ourselves. Taco Bell is extremely sanitary and clean and very healthy which I was amazed to learn. We pretty much just smoked weed in the freezers, took hits out the drive through window in exhange for free food. girls would drive through and flash us. we would use the condoment boxes as punching bags and we would box in the freezers.

    Fun as hell!
