    From the article:
    Somehow, it just doesn't surprise me. I've known people who waited tables in some of those chains, and about the only difference between them and fast food in terms of cleanliness is that you can't actually see into the kitchen in these chains to realize just how bad it is.

    I remember eating at a Pizza Hut once and I saw the waiter drop a pizza, it landed upside down. He didn't see me watching. He scooped all of the toppings up off the floor, rearranged them on the pizza, sprinkled a bit of cheese on top, warmed it then served it to the table next to me.

    Of course I told them before they started eating.

    I would bet that hotels should be added to the list of questionable food handlers. I got food poisoning at a hotel a couple of years ago. The bellhop told me that a young chef used meat that had sat out most of the previous day.

    I work at restaurant, and many times my manager and the assistant managers have told me to serve food after I have droped it on the floor. Usually it is bacon or sausage before I cook it. They tell me to just put it on the stove and it will kill the germs, but what about the dirt that it picks up off of the floor. I refuse every time this happens. They always look very mad. We have a big shrinkage problem in my store. The managers get bonuses the months that no shrinkage occurs. I guess that is not so bad though. They never tell me to serve something that has been droped on the floor after I have cooked it. But most people at my job touch the food without washing their hands. Sometimes right in front of customers. Their is this one ladie that NEVER washes her hands. It is pretty sick. I have never seen any one complain though. Although I have only worked their for 6 months.

    Upsetting the cook is something I don't recommend. As for cockroaches the old saying goes; what no kill you fatten you.
