SO GROSS!!! (long) - Page 7

post #91 of 128
My DD works at a local Dairy Queen, and is requested to close as often as possible. Everyone knows, if she's closing, they have nothing to worry about the next day. Everything will be spotless and shining - even the commodes!


I just wish she'd clean like that at home...

I do wash berries that I intend to eat immediately. I do not wash them if I am going to bake with them. Mushrooms get hard & rubbery and absorb water if you wash them, you should only use a moist towel to dust off any dirt you see as you would the berries.



i'm a germaphobic too, i wash everything, & we don't wear shoes in our home, since our floors are all scrubbed clean yada yada yada...

i wash everything, god knows how many times i wash my hands alone in a day (DH always makes fun of this).

anyways, the reason i'm quoting is, i wash my mushrooms all the time, & they never turned rubbery. i've used button, enoki, oyster, eryngi mushrooms for cooking, all of them were washed prior to cooking, they were fine as ever.

and i can't stop gagging rewinding the story above where the donut dough fell on the floor where the baker stepped on the doggie poo... super yucks!!!!!

Totally off topic here... but wanted to share something on this... My friend's aunt recently went to a Big Name Chain Restaurant... ordered fetuccini, thought it tasted funny, sent it back. Got the new plate, still tasted funny, and just had it packaged up thinking maybe it was just her... She brought it home and threw it in the freezer... Few weeks later, she starts developing sores in her mouth. Goes to Dr. and confirms that she has an oral STD (I'm sorry I can't remember which, the story grossed me out when I was told)
So... blah blah... they finally test the food she had waiting in her freezer.... IT TESTS POSITIVE FOR 4 DIFFERENT SEMEN "SAMPLES"
eeeewwwwww!!
She's currently suing them (and let me state, this woman is in her late 60's, I doubt she picked up the std in a "normal" way)
Funny thing, I was a waitress for almost 10 yrs, and can honestly say I never saw anything like this first hand.

The semen/fettucini story is the first one listed under the contaminated food urban myths at snopes.com.

Then either my friend lied to me or it's an incredible coincidence... icon_confused.gif

It's too coincidental, the details are all the same. Are you sure she said it was her aunt? Usually when someone has a story like that it's someone that a friend of a friend knows.
post #99 of 128
No.. it was his Aunt Cheryl... I'll bring it up again and see if his story changes...

foxymomma--I had a friend who told all kinds of funny and interesting stories about himself and his college friends, and when we met his friends from college at his wedding we all discovered that he'd been telling them funny stories about all of us, too. However, none of the stories were true...All of them had a grain of truth to them but were totally "embellished" to make himself look cooler (much) than he really was.

It was pretty funny that we all busted him on the day he got married, though. By the end of the night we were all really pissed off with him for being such a liar!

I don't know about that story, it does sound a bit extreme to be true. A bit like the urban legends about (it always seems to be Chinese) take-out places putting rat into the dishes. Hmm, because rat is so much easier to get hold of than chicken from the wholesaler..?

I do know for a fact - because I've seen her do it icon_biggrin.gif - my friend's mother always takes home a little piece of whatever she eats when she's out, so if she gets sick she can give it to the doctors to have it analysed. To my knowledge she never has, but I think if you're that worried, better to eat at home.

Ha ha! Actually, one of the Chinese food places in our town was shut down late last year because they were caught butchering a deer in their kitchen... One of the employees hit it with their car, and rather than let it go to waste, thought it was a good idea to use it for food icon_confused.gif That one I KNOW is true 'cause I read about it in the paper... eww.

I saw an episode of Good Eats where Alton Brown disproved this theory with an experiment. It was fascinating... I love how creative that show is... icon_smile.gif So, wash them if you want, I do... especially knowing what they grow in. icon_rolleyes.gif
