Clearly solicitor speak.
never heard of anything like this in the Asda I work at.

It's like McDonald's, I worked there for a while, you always hear the stories about people in burger joints spitting in the food, but it doesn't actually happen.
Its does happen, the worse thing is, is when a manager tells you to sweep the floor and then fix up a burger for a customer - i've seen it happen...

The other thing you find is, people on the till who are handling dirty cash,
again are told to come off the tills and fix up a burger without washing their hands. :( :evil: :?

This doesnt worry me really. You cant tell me some old dear whos putting fruit out on display who works for Asda wont wipe her nose or scratch her head for a split second ? How about an indian or chinese restaurant, you dont know if back there they have tons of clean pots etc or the guy hasnt got a cold, some of the chefs you see i cant believe know everything about food and hygiene in the UK when theyve just flown over from Pakistan.

Look at people in general, their hands are the dirtiest part of the body and look how many people shake hands ? I mean when you pop to the loo in a pub, you know tons of people go in there to have a quick 'jimmy riddle' and never wash their hands etc afterwards. Seconds later theyre shaking hands with people when a minute earlier they were holding something else !

Of course its not great but i wouldnt worry too much about things like this. Even if some old dear bought that chicken that idiot licked, i'm sure she'll wash it, season it and then put it in the oven for ages killing most germs. There was that muppet a few months back in Subway who was smearing the lettuce all over his face and pretending to blow his nose in it. Wouldnt stop me from going to Subway.

Doesn't worry me at all either. As a nipper, I was exposed to all sorts by my sensible mum who wanted to build up my immune system, and as such I have no allergies (besides cornflour). Even used to go around the playground when I was 7 or 8, eating crisps off the floor!

We used to mess around when I worked in a Spar, everyone does - stuff like shaking up all the beer cans, swapping the labels on Heinz and HP beans, racing around on them little trolleys - harmless stuff, but nothing destructive.

Exposure to a certain level of germs and bacteria is good for us - it helps strengthen immunity. Thus the 3-second floor rule :D

It's the guys shitting in the root beer that concern me more - it happened in my "local" (Hereford) McDonalds some 12 years ago...

Aye, but you have to feel sorry for the Tesco-ites. Had a pal who worked there, and he says they make you clock off if you're going the toilet, and then deduct from your wages every time you drop a can on the floor or something.

He once worked a 90-hour week, and got paid for 30 of them. Not good.

As far as that video goes, ive seen far worse.

I wont name names but I worked in a branch of a big supermarket chain, when I was 16 I worked behind the counter in a fast food place and at the factory of one of the worlds biggest chocolate producers and ive seen everything, some of it tame (which I found funny) and some of it horrible (which was sick)
