B!tch on the Street

The Food Bar...Ew!


Today I didn't have much time to grab lunch. I happened to walk by this huge "gourmet" deli and went in. Normally, I'd never go near a food bar since a few years ago they found some dude had been visiting multiple NYC delis with a spray bottle filled with his piss and spraying it on the food. Classic.

I just wanted a quick bite of something hot since it's chilly today. I thought....well, maybe I'll just get a scoop of mac and jack and go.

I approached the food bar timidly. Seriously, it's been like 3 years since I've eaten at a food bar. I walked all around and saw what they had. It looked really good. Very clean. Lots of people there, so I figured it must not be too bad.

Then it happened.

The woman you see in this picture (old lady, left of the food bar) was beside me. As I waited my turn for the mac and jack, she leaned in toward the fresh mozzarella with tomato and proceeded to pick a bit of cheese off WITH HER BARE HAND. I was horrified. But it gets worse. She then reached in, again with her hand, and picked up a piece of chicken from the chicken and broccoli bin! I said, "Excuse me. You're supposed to use the spoons to get what you want and put it in your container." She ignored me. For all I knew, this was her lunch...hand sampling everything at the food bar. I was too tired and she was too old for me to go off.

I put my container down and left the store.

Ew.
