The 19 Most Disgusting Things Restaurant Employees Have Done


My husband said the worst was how much food gets dropped on the floor and served. Added to the fact they mop the bathrooms, then kitchen, he wont eat fast food anymore.


I threw a sliced pickle on the ceiling and it stuck there for almost 10 months. Also I put crackers in the ice machine and never told anyone. Everyone else thought it was disgusting because they didn't know what it was.


I work at McDonalds and the chicken freezer switched off and left open from 7pm so it's defrosted by closing and takes less time to clean. Limescale remover is used to clean the hotplates, we use one mop bucket of water for the entire restaurant (including toilets), and the milkshake machine cleaned so infrequently we discovered 3 inches of pink spongy mold covering the insides.
