mouse droppings would improve the food there

The ONLY reason this happened is because these businesses are strangled by regulation. If there were no regulation, they would have time to make sure this kind of thing never happens.

I know a guy who was fired from a fast food asst. manager position because he refused to cook some chicken that was so bad it was green.

Manager then turned to my brother and told him to cook it. He did, but stayed by the counter and made sure no one bought it.

Having a mouse in my buns isn't really my bag, Baby.

It's not the droppings you have to worry about. Mice piss everywhere they go, to leave a scent trail they can follow home in the morning. Heh...

They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have mouse droppings. My buns have no droppings."

Y'all think only McDs does this? Restaurants of any kind operate on a very tight budget. If a nice filet-mignon was just finished cooking, then fell on the floor and was stepped on by the chefs filthy sneakers that he walked to work in..over spit, dirt, and piss..you really think he's grilling you a new one?
Psshhhhawww...pick it up, wipe it off (maybe), and back on the plate it goes. Chef stays on schedule and you are none the wiser.

publikenemy: Y'all think only McDs does this? Restaurants of any kind operate on a very tight budget.


Meanwhile, expensive clothing stores take their overstock and slice it up with utility knives before throwing it out to prevent anyone from pilfering their trash.

Sister used to work at Caldor, they got flooded and a lot of merchandise was ruined.

They mark it down to zero and throw it out. Capitalism allows for such loss of merchandise from the extraordinary markup. The rule of thumb is "if you can't sell it for 5x what it cost to produce, it's not worth producing."

I worked at an amusement park in the ice cream/snack shop in my younger days. The owners are well known and have connections with some local government officials and the place should have been shut down for numerous health/safety violations but always seem to get outstanding inspections. I got assigned to work in the ice cream/snack shop. Some of the workers would smoke while preparing food out of sight of customers. Mice had gotten into the place where the sugar cones were kept. I notified my manager and was basically told to STFU and GBTW. I cringed every time I had to sell those cones. I hoped no one got sick. I quit not long afterwards. Later the place had a fire and half the park burnt down. When I heard about it I wasn't surprised.

What's that? CSB? Sure, sit down.

I used to work at a McDonalds somewhere in the northern mountains of Georgia. (Just so you know you aren't eating there.)

One day, the milkshake machine stops working. Just kind of freezes up. Well, no problem. We'll check it out when we're not so busy. We ignore it for a little while. We stop ignoring it at the exact time something starts oozing out of the front panel.

Spoiled milk? You wish, sugarpants. Maggots. A thick, juicy swarm of maggots that had completely coated the mix reservoir, worked its way into the tubes, and took over the front panel. Writhing white maggots in clear grey slime. Turns out the maintenance (including cleaning) of the ice cream machine had been skipped for a few days in a row. End result? Ugh. Don't make me think about it any more. It's exactly as bad as you're afraid it may have been. We had to keep cleaning off the front so no one would see. The coffee machines can dispense scalding hot water -- that was my weapon of choice.

Managers tried to pull off a cover up. I don't think it was ever officially reported (if I was thirty instead of sixteen that may have been different), but milkshake sales dropped off the radar for a while.

One Papa John's I worked at, the area manager was such a hardliner about this that he would through food out if it was one day over the use-by. 90% of the food was still good, although day over dough tends to be kinda...ew. While part of me appreciated that, another part lamented the waste of food going on.
 
2012-01-16 07:33:19 AM
Another former employee told Fox 29 he had seen the general manager shake off droppings herself.

That's a shame. The mouse shiat was probably the most nutritious part of the burger.

I was with a coworker years ago when he was showing me how he cleaned beer lines. I asked him how often the competitor's cleaned theirs. He said he hadn't seen anyone in there in a while. He stuck his pen up the faucet & pulled it out & it was covered in a slimy, yeast infection. The smell alone about made me puke. It doesn't take too long to get that way either.

Maggots are natures scrubbing bubbles. They were cleaning your milkshake machine for you.

When I was young and working at a pizza joint, I was forced by management to continue to use ground beef that had gone rancid. It was disgusting. I guess it would have been OK, but the customer didn't order rancid beef.

If the manager would have thrown out the buns and called an extermenator it might have cut into the manager's end of the month bonus. Seriously. It is amazing what a greedy manager will do to pad that monthly bonus. Especially at a chain restaurant if they don't own an intrest in the business.

I love this thread. My new years resolution was to stop eating fast food. I wish I hadn't slipped up and had that milkshake a couple weeks ago though. Blech.

I know anywhere you go will have something nasty going on. But this does help me keep my resolve.

In a thread related note, when I was working at a Wendy,s back in the 80s I remember watching our manager spit into someone's burger. Don't be rude at the drive through, folks. This same manager used to make us work off the clock. And we were young enough and dumb enough to do it.

They should be grateful they have mice. I have been told that mice and rats will not cohabit the same building. I know that in our 150 year old farmhouse, we generally have mice but the one year that we got really serious about getting rid of the mice, the rats moved in. We have gotten rid of the rats but now have mice again. I'll take the mice. So the fact that this employee saw a mouse should be cause for great rejoicing. It probably means no rats.

Still no excuse for serving any bun in that bag to a customer. The whole bag and contents should have been destroyed and all other packages inspected for evidence of mouse damage.
