thank you, that is why I hate these stories, they tell only part truths and most people take them like the OP, read into them only the bad stuff. Now, if it is a story that they want to point out the positives they read only positives. Thanks again for pointing out what the story really said.

I do know a health inspector, not a good idea to know one personally. If you knew the things i knew that went on, you would never ever eat again. And not only fast food, but some very nice Restaurants, one thing, don't make your waitress or the cook mad!

I agree, there is a BK i will never eat at again, the burger maker kept playing with his infected-looking ear ring...while waitng to get his next order.

I rarely eat at corporate burger places or were teens are the majority of staff...not to knock teens, but many dont have a concept of sanitary practices...and most young managers have their own problems keeping a staff. I usually eat at mom and pop places where the staff is the same for years and years...

oh...I know that this wasnt the topic, but I get tired of Sensational Teases that most TV stations do to get you to watch a segment...then most of the time the story has nothing to do with the tease...

And too many people on the net just take info for granted and never check a source, or just pass bad info along...I know its a funny story, its just not accurite.
