Did You Hear That?


Date: November 11, 2009
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Place: The Spa at Personal Choice, Old Town, Eureka

Three women are talking about the pros and cons of several local dining establishments.

Woman #1: I have a policy not to eat anywhere with a sneeze guard.

Woman #2: The last time my husband and I went out to dinner he found a button in his mashed potatoes. A button! It came off of one of the waiter's uniforms. He didn't find it until it was in his mouth.

Woman #3: Well.....I'll never forget the time I found a mop string in my crab cake.

Aren't you going to name names?

I'm conflicted. Because as gross as that is, that crab cake in the picture is like food porn. I think I'd eat it with my hands.

Kristabel said...

Isn't it more fun to guess, Heraldo?

Shieldmaiden....I know! But then every time I look at it my mind starts to wander... how did the mop string get in there? Did they drop the crab cake on the floor and put it back on the plate? Do they use a mop to wipe the countertops? Eew.

That's really bad! The grossest thing I've ever found in food was a hair.

I found a dead fly in my salad at Marie Calendar's once.

I once found a fairly sizable chunk of crab in a crab cake. I was too embarrassed to send it back.

Did I mention nacho cheese covers the taste of most foreign objects in restaurant food? I carry my own jar for just such incidents.

P.S. Boys! You should be ashamed! Girls never make comments like that.

Carson Park Ranger said...

I'm with Ekovox on that one.
No, not the damned nacho cheese.

I once found a large spider draped
with blue cheese in my garden salad. I pointed it out the waitress who had a hard time seeing
it then with her coke bottle glasses.

I once found a fingernail in my fried rice. It had hot pink nail polish on it. Blech.

Greg found a wadded paper napkin in dinner salad at The Rib Room at the Eureka Inn years ago. They gave him another salad for free.
