Advanced search think that the orange segment handed to me on a plate along with the hot lemon-scented towel at the end of my meal in the local Indian restaurant should not have been previously sucked by a person unknown to me?

Obviously, you're gonna have to give us more...come on, give us all the gory details..

cadelaide Mon 08-Sep-08 22:43:12

Well it was pretty straightforward really. Two orange quarters (peel-on) on a plump and juicy and the other clearly, obviously sucked. You could see the teeth marks, FFS grin

controlfreakinfreaky Mon 08-Sep-08 22:44:16

what did you say / do?

LittleBella Mon 08-Sep-08 22:45:14

God some people are just so pernickety.

It's the credit crunch. Times are hard.

LittleBella Mon 08-Sep-08 22:45:49


They could have at least introduced the unknown person

Standards eh.

Overmydeadbody Mon 08-Sep-08 22:46:34

lol at cornsilk

It'd be funnier if they'd left their set of teeth in the segment too

cadelaide Mon 08-Sep-08 22:48:59

I'm a little ashamed to admit I did nothing. They are lovely people and it was a very quiet night and I just felt sorry for them. Like cornsilk said....times are hard! grin

They would probably have wanted to know though wouldn't they?....... that it had slipped through quality control I mean?

Will you be going back there?

cadelaide Mon 08-Sep-08 22:54:15

Yes, we'll go back, and I shall just covertly lick the orange pieces, knowing that the extremely good-looking bloke on the corner table may well suck on them later.

Ewww ...

We recently had cucumber slices which had clearly been bitten.

I dread to think how common this is.

cadelaide Mon 08-Sep-08 23:03:14

Well I gues the government is urging us all to reduce food wastage.....

Apparently uneaten salad garnish is washed and re-used in some places. ( I know quite a few waitresses).

handlemecarefully Mon 08-Sep-08 23:10:04

I so don't want to know that platypussy!

PeaMcLean Mon 08-Sep-08 23:10:44

Gross! There has to be rules against that!

FabioBadAssCat Mon 08-Sep-08 23:12:32


makes me think fondly of my lidl's catfud

but some oranges are like that, aren't they?
they've sprung a leak when still wrapped in their skin and gone all dry and wizened.

But yeuch.

Yet another good reason to not eat the salad.

I thank you.

MuthaHubbard Tue 09-Sep-08 16:48:15

platypussy is right - i used to be a waitress!

cheshirekitty Tue 09-Sep-08 19:04:05

My hubby used to destroy all salad garnish that was on his plate, ie rip petals off rose shaped garnish etc.

Now I know why.
