That is just completely unacceptable! They should throw away the roller coaster!

Jokes... but seriously, what would you expect them to do?

Good buddy of mine use to work at CompuSmart on georgia st. downtown. its no longer there. or maybe moved?
Technicians there were lazy and deceitful like shit.
They look at your computer/laptop etc for 15 minutes and they charge you for 2 hours of labour. Sometimes they say the problem is not fixable, but it is, they are just too lazy to spend the time and effort on it and they will just say its not fixable and that they have a sale upstairs on their desktop computers to get people to buy it.

I can honestly say we have done all the above too.
more to add:

muffins are baked in the morning and are left sitting there for the whole day.

Chicken strips or Grilled chicken breasts are also made at around 11am and would sit there in warmer all day until someone orders it. It would be all dry, rubbery and hard..we'll just dip it in the grease and microwave it to make it juicy again.

The lettuce in salads and burgers are prepackaged and are usually still used even if they have been expired a long time ago. Same goes with the tomatoes.

The coolers where the eggs, milk, dairy products, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese are kept have mold in there usually in the deep corners and in the boxes old expired dairy products that are tucked way in the back of the cooler.

You know that chefs at other restaurants do not use gloves as well when preparing food right? There is nothing wrong with this and it makes absolute sense. It's a lot easier to wash your hands after touching/cooking raw meat than to get a new pair of gloves each time.

And as for the 'we wipe off grease on our pants' comment, you should say so for yourself only. I worked at that same mcdonald's 4 years prior and I never did that.

Someone also mentioned that muffins were baked in the morning and left there until night. Again, I see nothing wrong with this; baked goods don't expire in a day.

Yeah but chef's constantly wash their hands and keep clean, unlike all of you fucks that don't know shit about sanitation or karma.

Careful when you cross the street tomorrow morning, you might run into someone who is just as careless as you.

At EB Games, the backroom is usually full of games that are scattered all over the place. The games are kicked around to clear paths. People will trade in rare games for pennies and the employees will have first dibs. I have seen people trade in MvC2, non greatest hits FF, chronotrigger, and a silent scope rifle. The "hold" drawer is where they are all kept.

i remember when i got my Star Ocean 2, i was talking to one of the guys that worked there (this was like 5+ years ago) and he said they had 2 copies and he was planning to buy them both, cause they were hard to get ahold of, and i ended up buying one of them lol. still have the game ;D.

although what i want to find is a PS1 ver of Valkyrie Profile. i have the PSP ver but its not the same.

You guys think this is bad?



Try eating "Mexico burger" in Costa Rica



Nothing like taking a bite out of a burger and having a 24 inch long piece of sinew stuck between your teeth.

LOL, at first I thought he meant Super Scope for the SNES!!!

Anyways, I didn't realize the black label FF7 is worth sooooo much!!

I have the game sitting around somewhere!! The greatest hits version is worth nothing compared to the black label version!

I never ate anything from the restaurant unless I made it myself (though you are not supposed to). I'd take it straight from the big freezer in the back and not from the small ones in the kitchen where someone else stocked them up.

Get a wet-vac and suck up all the chunks. Spray down the puke spot, wash it out. Send it on a run. Then spray it with sanitizer, hose it up, then send it again. Dry it up with a Towel then send it again.

I'm sure people can think of better ways than just hosing it down. When you invite a guest over at your house, do you just water your plates? Sure, no one's eating off the roller coaster seat, but when you find chunks of post-ingested mini donuts and white spot burgers on your socks, you'll wish they did throw out the coaster

That might be true for most places, but I know at Starbucks they clean out the ice machine at least once every two weeks and run sanitizer through it.

well they better, if I have to pay $5 for a damned drink, but I think it's safe to guess even *$ has less than perfect stores. but at McD's with the $1 coffees and refills, I doubt the $8/hr kids who work there ever clean the ice machine. Hell, a kid in the states did a science project on which was cleaner at a fast food place, the ice machine or the toilet water after 2 flushes to ensure there were no leftovers. you can guess which one ended up being cleaner.
