He'd make a terrible actor.
See him staring at the camera ?

If for some reason I can't get my fat a$$ up and go to a fast food joint, I probably don't need it to begin with.

That's a good idea.

I once walked into a sub sandwich shop either after or before lunch rush (can't remember). The manager (I assume because he was the only one there) was at a table with a large platter of sandwiches in front of him which he was stacking on a carry out catering tray from another tray. He put the last one on put the lid on, licked the mayo off his finger(no joke) and walked behind the counter to take my order.
I gave him my order expecting him to wash his hands and put gloves on. He did neither. He went to the slicer to slice my lunchmeat. Once I realized that he was not going to do so I said " Never mind, you licked your fingers and didn't wash your hands" and I walked out. He looked stunned but I didn't care.

I have seen fast food cashiers help out filling the bags with food and touch fries, ice cream cone, etc with their hands after handling money while the customer watched them do it without incident. Some people don't seem to have a problem with it. Nasty.

I'm seeing this cross-contamination more and more. Even at my local deli, there's this guy back there scrubbing the floor with lots of grime and water splashing about. Then he comes up with a filthy apron and sweaty face to wait on me. I cringed inside and said, sorry, I've changed my mind. This happens 2 out of three times at my local deli.

As for our local subway, there's a woman who is very careless when her dirty apron touches the sandwiches when she leans against the fixings. The sauce squeeze bottles, which are kept in a metal bin obviously dripping with water upon the sandwiches. They seem to have no connection to why that is wrong. So when desperate for food I will go there but never get the sauces. Anyone can buy a subway shop, Corporate does not enforce good quality standards, surprisingly.

Sure. But what happened to your produce, deli meats, chicken legs at the grocery before you purchased them? We might drive ourselves nuts thinking about this stuff!

Subway is closing so many stores. And it's not surprising to me. There seems to be no quality control by corporate at all. My kid's college has a small Subway on campus. Last time she went there the employee (one employee) was sitting on the ingredient counter (meats, cheeses, vegis) playing on his phone! Needless to say she did not purchase a sandwich.

Well, from that point on, yeah. Anything could have happened in the restaurant. (Truly insidious people could even carry around a stapler to keep on hand. lol)
