I don't steal mine. The restaraunt owners are perfectly happy giving it to my nephew who converts it for my VW Golf. I only pay $0.42/gallon. I love my nephew.

Worked at Golden Corral in NW Indiana for a couple years, this happened on numerous occasions. Owner would walk out the back door, and you'd hear the bellow of 'Are you FARKING KIDDING ME!?!'

He sold the shiat to various people for quite a profit, so yes, dammit, he was angry someone broke the lock on the back fence and stole his greasy goodness.

I hated those days. He was pretty much angry all the time, but that just took it to new levels.

Seriously, why steal? Sometimes they will even pay you to take it.

FTFA: "38-year-old Yonkers, New York resident Andrew Carnegie was arrested after employees at Five Guys Burgers caught him syphoning their grease into two 275-gallon containers in his van."
Times must be truly hard for the Carnegie family if they are desperate enough to be "syphoning".

I figured they'd need most of it to grease the doors to get the fat farks out of the restaurant.

You know when they have the Endless Ribs special? Dozens of 12inch tall plastic shallow tubs of ribs lined the dirty floor of the back hall/wall, all without tops, with employees constantly walking by, carrying nasty ass mops, buckets of cleaner, wads of disgusting dishrags, and just the crap that gets carried around by your shoes. Walked up and down that hall 30 times a day just staring down at little bits of crud and muck that made its way into the tubs. I'm glad I don't care much for ribs. This happens for pretty much whatever the current special is. Just plopped into those tubs, lining the back floor of the hallway.

I want to hear your story :P I love restaurant horror..

Me too. A buddy of mine worked at a OCB, one day he and a co-worker went in to open. They turned on the fryers only to find a partially cooked rat came bubbling up to the top. The co-worker instantly threw up. The little farker must of fell in shortly after closing, so the oil was still hot enough to kill. I never asked whether they changed out the oil or not, I just made a mental note to never eat at one ever again.

I don't mind hearing the horror stories, because I'm poor, and usually just eat at home anyway. So unless you've worked for Oscar Meyer or Bar-S (Yes, farking nasty, but cheap), and have stories of those companies, you couldn't really scare me. My meals consist of bologna sandwiches and whatever pizza my buddy brings home from the gourmet pizzeria he co-manages, so I haven't had fast food or dined out in many moons.

My first real job was at Wendy's.

Don't eat the chili...

From what I read, you're very luck if you can get it for free anymore. In the last few years, a number of companies have sprung up that will pay the owners for the grease and then re-sell it.

The days of people literally free-riding off of the grease is apparently over.

OCB = Old Country Buffet

Or as we called it, Old Crunchy Buffet.

We drove them out of business in the NW Indiana area when I was at Golden Corral. Those old folks...they love them their Early Bird Special. I opened the front of that damn restaurant 6 days a week for 2 years straight. Opened at 11, Early Bird was at 2pm. Never quite understood that.

Old coot 'We got here early, why can't we have the Early Bird price?'
Me 'I genuinely don't know..'

A few years ago all these smug bastards started going onto message boards and talking about how they were getting all of this free used cooking oil for their converted biofuel cars. This is simply the logical conclusion.

It was interesting to watch this show a few years back about these college grads going across the US in a van using filtered cooking grease they got for free from restaurants. They were promoting bio-diesel.

Then out came assorted episodes concerning guys who made their own bio-diesel and how restaurants were eager to let them have the stuff for free, since they had to pay companies to haul it away.

Gas prices were high and the cost of diesel -- which is actually far cheaper than gas to make from crude -- soared in cost faster than anything else. The reason given was because of the increase in diesel cars but you and I know it's because it dawned on folks that 90% of the goods for the nation were hauled by diesel burning trucks and trains.

That means an even greater profit if you triple the cost of this dirt cheap fuel.

So, by the end of a year or so of all sorts of programs on TV showing how profitable it was to make bio-diesel with free grease -- especially since assorted companies would happily buy the primary disposable chemical from the process -- glycerin -- it didn't take long for big business to enter the field and grab up so much free grease that now they pay the restaurants' to haul it away.

Even with bio-diesel now commercially on the market, the cost of diesel is still high -- meaning we still have to pay a fuel surcharge on our products.

So, grease thefts isn't surprising. Everyone has to capitalize on the bonanza.

Repeat after me. Used vegetable oil IS NOT Biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from vegetable oil but they are not the same thing.

They had a gizmo in the van that made the fuel. I remember that show. Was a neat idea until everyone jumped on the bandwagon and now the stuff is pretty much the same price as regular diesel fuel. Theres a gas station here that sells it, but they seem to be perpetually out of it.

When I was much younger, I worked for 2 different Domino's:

While working at "Dominos South" there was a manager who made ALL the pizzas during her shift. She was a nose-picker... 'nuff said. At the same location, they would proof their dough by bringing it out of the cooler, taking off the plastic wrap and set it on the floor next to the bathrooms, 'recover' cheese that had been dropped on the floor and put it back into the processing bowl, and when this one kid with allergies would sneeze near/on pizzas before being put into the oven, the manager would say 'the germs will cook off in the oven--don't worry about it.

"Dominos East" wasn't as bad, but the manager making pizzas was 'unclean' in any way you can imagine. He lived alone with 5 cats. I kid you not: the guy had cat hair all over his clothes... and while he washed his hands before handling food, I would have to pick out the obvious cat hair from the pies as they left the oven.

Here's the kicker: I reported these items to the owners, and I was fired for 'gossiping' and 'failure to promote good will' in the store.
