    when you go to a Chinese restaurant

    my aunt works as an editor for a Chinese newspaper in Vancouver
    she said that if you are not happy with the waiters
    you should complain only AFTER you got all your food
    and if you are not happy with the food,especially when it is not clean,and you ask them to change,check carefully before you eat it

    not kidding,some cooks would put some 'extra' stuffs into the food if you piss them or the waiters off,
    it was on a TV show, the boss of the restaurant put a camera in the kitchen,and he saw the cooks spit on the food and put all kinds of extra stuffs into the food

    my family went to a Chinese restaurant a few days ago,to celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival,the waiters were so rude,my father complained
    and in the food that my brother ordered,we all tried it and we suspect the cook put some WD 40 into the food
    we asked the boss to come try the food,she did not even try it in front of us,she went straight to the kitchen to talk with the cooks
    my brother have taken a piece of the food home,gonna take it somewhere to examinate it soon

    There was a Chinese restaurant about 40 mins away from where I live and it was shut down many years ago because a woman got some...er... "special sauce" in her rice.. No kidding. It was a cook who was disgruntled and fired, he decided to get some revenge..

    Ever seen "Fight Club"? I'm sure the "gorilla terrorist of the food service industry" scene gave a lot of people ideas, if they didn't have them already.

    Years ago I worked at Subway and a customer was really rude to me so I put a lot of horse radish into his sandwich hidden under the meat, but that's the worst I ever did.

    Yeah. It's universal, Not just contained to Chinese Restaurants.

    America, land of opportunity, mirages and camouflages - more than usually
    Speakin loudly, sayin nothin, you confusin me, you losin me
    Your game is twisted, want me enlisted - in your usary
    Foolishly, most men join the ranks cluelessly
    Buffoonishly accept the deception, believe the perception

    Most of the people that I know who have worked for restaurants from the Denny's level on down (to McD's, Wendy's, etc) have said that if you knew what they knew you'd NEVER eat at any of those places.

    My favorite story is about Taco Bell. I knew a guy who worked there who said the boxes of ground beef they got were marked "USDA Grade D, but fit for human consumption."

    Ewwwwww...

    True.. true.. the girls make it all worth while

    WD-40
    Loosen rusted parts. Prevents rust. Cleans sticky parts and lubricates. Displaces moisture.

    I don't think it's edible... Anything that disolves rust shouldn't be eaten.

    I've interned in a few resturaunts, and the last one I worked at was a Japanese resturaunt, and the chefs in the kitchen basically ignored comments of the guests, since they were too busy competing with each other on creating the best dish.

    Most of the waiters were too busy to do anything to the food, even if they wanted to.

    I'm not sure if it's poisonous but most chemicals used in a garage are pretty nasty
