Eurgh. The only time I ever eat at my local Maccy D’s is when my a girl I know from high school prepares it from me. I wouldn’t trust any of the others who work there to do it for me, as I’ve heard what they do to food!!

Even the restaurant I worked in weren’t particularly sanitary about food when the head chef wasn’t in. And they charge extortionate amounts for the stuff.

Officer Sues Over ‘Mucousy’ Sandwich

May 31, 5:05 PM (ET)

CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A police officer who claims his chicken sandwich was slimed by two teenage employees at a McDonald’s restaurant is suing the fast food company.

Officer Josh Douglas said he was working nights two years ago and went through the McDonald’s drive-thru in Charles City. He ordered a chicken sandwich, which came with lettuce and tomato.

Not liking vegetables, Douglas said he went to remove the toppings and discovered what he described as a mucousy substance holding them together.

“Fortunately, I don’t like lettuce. Because if I did I would have at least taken one bite before I realized what was the matter,” he said.

Douglas and another officer went inside the restaurant, where they found two teenagers working. The employees said they were imitating a prank in a movie in which a state trooper orders a burger and the cook spits phlegm on it.

Both boys were fired and one of them later apologized to Douglas, records show.

Douglas and his attorney, Joel Yunek, say they have negotiated with McDonald’s for more than a year but have been unable to reach a settlement. They filed a lawsuit on May 8 in Floyd County District Court.

Yunek said they aren’t looking “for the world.”

“But certainly ... he is deserving of an apology. Certainly, he is deserving of some kind of compensation,” Yunek said.

Douglas said it’s not about money but about accountability and to ensure the restaurant takes measures to ensure their employees are handling food properly.

Sam Soifer, the owner of the Charles City franchise, said in a written statement to KIMT-TV in Mason City that the restaurant took immediate action to fire the employees and that McDonald’s takes food safety seriously.

You know, when I worked for such a place, we had to watch an orientation video, where the CEO sat and said “When people think ‘BK’ they think ‘Quality” and I thought to myself “That’s funny. Everytime someone asks me where I work and I tell the, the first thing they say is ‘Do you really spit on the burgers?’”


I never saw it happen. But we did often give the old food to obnoxious customers.

And trust me, you see how these things are made, spittle is the least of your worries.

I’d imagine these things happen all the time in many places. I’ve worked in a few restaurants/kitchens in my time and disgruntled employees are sure to have some “fun”.

Personally, I worked briefly at a Red Lobster and witnessed the chefs playing a game they liked to call “Popcorn Gobs”. They would spit into the popcorn shrimp batter and throw it into the deep fryer along with the actual popcorn shrimp. The result were balls of the breading stuff without anything inside (the liquid part of the spit seemed to be dried up, or leaked out during the deep frying. Yes, it was later served to customers. I was rather disgusted by it, luckily already had a new job lined up and was only there a week or so. I would have mentioned it to the manager, but he was the “store champion”.

Now, whenever I have any “popcorn” style food (chicken, shrimp, etc.) I tend to break it apart first to make sure the intended stuffing is there… And I don’t eat at Red Lobster wink
