Restaurants are very interesting places. If you are a customer, you are arriving hoping for the best that particular food establishment has to offer. It doesn’t matter whether you are at a McDonald's or sitting at a fine dining establishment - you just want the food to taste good and be “as advertised.” From a customer point of view, we demand good service. But there’s an entire other side of the restaurant business: the employee side.
Employees are generally underpaid in the food industry. Most of these employees are also temporary fixtures at their locations. They aren’t looking for a career as a cashier, waiter/waitress or a dishwasher, they just sort of found themselves there and it is a flexible job that makes their lives go round.
The restaurant business is a rough and competitive one. Everyone is looking to squeeze every last cent they can out of their business. So when employees are pushed harder and harder, and they receive the same amount of money, things can get a bit frustrating. Employees are asked to stretch themselves to unreasonable ends which applies a great deal of pressure on them. In addition to being driven by their bosses/upper management, employees face the wrath of being short-staffed and have impatient customers to deal with. When employees reach their breaking point, they get angry. And when they get angry, they tend to do some of the dumbest things imaginable.
A lot of these employees are young and lack better judgment. Unfortunately, these dumb things can adversely affect customers. It’s enough to make you never want to eat out again! These are 10 Employees Who Have Done Disgusting Things In Restaurants.
10 Kentucky Fried Chicken – Finger Lickin’ Good!
9 Taco Bell – Cool Ranch Tongue Lashing
Things can be pretty slow at the Taco Bell in Ridgecrest. So much so that during a food step-down (or the integration of new food products at a restaurant) the store was running a contest. The employees were trying to capture each of their first bites of the new products. One Taco Bell employee in particular thought it would be better to lick an entire stack of new Doritos Cool Ranch Taco shells. The picture was captured and then put on the Internet. It went viral and caused all kinds of problems.
8 Dunkin Donuts – Extra Sugar
7 McDonald’s – I Like My Coffee Light With Extra Phlegm
6 Chili’s – I Said Tip Me!
5 Burger King – Dishwasher Needed
4 Burger King – Tastes Like Feet
3 Subway – Making It Fresh
2 Taco Bell – “I’ll Piss On Anything”
1 Burger King – Secret Sauce
Burger King finally beat McDonald's at something! That’s right, Burger King comes in with their third disgusting employee story on this top 10 list! Now, to the good stuff. In 2009, it was revealed that three Burger King teenage employees from the Scottsville, New York establishment, were adding a secret sauce to the top of hamburgers. It was found that for at least 8 months, these three employees were adding bodily fluids such as urine and spit, as well as cleaning solvents such as oven cleaner and another cleaner with bleach to the tops of hamburgers. That’s right…for at least 8 months! The three teens, the youngest being a 17-year old girl, were all taken into custody and charged with food tampering. This one is enough to make you never want to eat fast food ever again. Wow.
