Joe Pesci said it best in the movie Lethal Weapon 2 during his famous rant about the quality of the food at the drive-thru. I'd show the quote here, but that might put my blog in the partial profanity category for adult language!! If you haven't heard it, you can check it out here.
I live in a small town where the fast food choices are limited. I don't expect things to be perfect all the time, but when my hamburger bun has mold on the bottom, and you can actually smell that the chicken strips have gone bad, that's a little more than I can take! The scary thing is...the restaurant didn't even seem overly surprised or concerned about it. They just took back the bad food and remade my order. By this point, I'm not sure I want to eat the new one either!
The whole idea of a fast food restaurant is to get your food fast, but that doesn't mean I want to eat cold fries that have been sitting there for who knows how long. I'd like to see the person who served this food try to eat it themselves.
The obvious solution would be to eat at home, but we're on the go a lot, and sometimes it's just easier to eat out, (and sometimes I just don't feel like cooking!) Even if you do eat at home, that doesn't guarantee that everything will be as expected. I once found the tip of a rubber glove in my green beans, but that's another story!
