I feel like I find an inordinate amount of non-food items in my food when I eat out. Plastic, pebbles . . . . . one time I noticed a chip in my plate, and sure enough located the missing piece of dinnerware in a mouthful of meatloaf. A few days ago I found a rubber band sticking out of my Cuban sandwich. More disturbing to me is my reaction to these events. Instead of righteous indignation, invariably I feel almost guilty for finding unwanted objects in my meal. When I noticed the rubber band I immediately thought "Oh no. Do I mention this? I don't want to mention this. The food is good, the waitress was nice, the folks working here seem very nice, I don't want to cause any trouble. I know the waitress is going to feel bad, and start apologizing, and I don't want to cause a fuss. Maybe I should just drop the rubber band on the floor and pretend I never saw it." I have no idea why I react this way. Focus: What have you found in your food- Half of a roach? Coney Island whitefish? The neighbors dog? - and how did you react? Alt focus: If you work or have worked in the food service industry, what is the worst thing a customer has found in their food?
