Holy crap! What is going on? I was at a restaurant tonight and I ordered soup and it had an entire human hand in the bowl! It has happened again. In Raleigh, North Carolina a customer found a fingertip in a pint of frozen custard. It’s getting so it’s not safe to eat out anymore. This situation had a much more interesting ‘twist’ (pun intended) than the Wendy’s chili finger story. In this story someone actually did lose a real finger and someone else actually found the piece of finger in their frozen custard. The customer apparently refused to return the fingertip to the employee who had lost it only 30 minutes before. Apparently doctors have said that if the fingertip was returned when it was found they could have re-attached it successfully. The customer chose to pocket the finger and walk out of the frozen yogurt stand cackling about how he was going to contact the press and sue the restaurant. The kicker in this whole story is that this is the second time in a year that an employee has lost a piece of finger in the exact same machine in the exact same frozen yogurt business. Does it surprise anyone that this whole thing, the second lost finger and a nut job who takes it home, happened in North Carolina?
You can bet your ass I’m not going to be ordering Rocky Road ice cream anytime soon. How the hell could you possibly tell the difference between a peanut and a fingertip? When you order chicken fingers at TGI Friday’s there is apparently a better than average chance you’ll be getting a real finger. (TGI Fridays is so going to sue me over this) If I’m at a restaurant the first thing I’m going to be doing from now on is counting how many digits my server has before I order.
