What Would YOU Do?

Once again, I must say that I am a magnet for "situational drama".

Today me & my girls that lunch went to one of our favorite markets. It's where the people know our names (well, not really but I liked the way that sounded).

So here's my question:

What would you do if you witnessed the preparer of your meal scratching his elbow w/his GLOVED fixing-the-meat hand?

Yep, saw it, was open-mouthed about it, and it almost broke my heart...

Although the food that was being prepared was about to be put on the grill under high heat, I just couldn't shake the visual of THE SCRATCHER going to town like the street dog w/fleas or a meth head in the middle of an episode.

When you witness unsanitary acts at a favorite spot, do you turn a blind eye? Cancel your order? Share a few words on proper cleanliness? Or just never return?

Every friend that I know who has worked in a restaurant says that you wouldn't believe what goes on in the kitchen. Well, I don't want to know. I don't want to see. I just want to blissfully enjoy the ambiance of a good restaurant, w/good food, w/good company. Is that asking too much?

  1. I would ask the preparer-politely- to stop scratching his elbow while preparing my food. He may be able to get away with those things with other people but not with this chica. Either stop or lose a customer!!
