    Thumbs down Destroying food you have eaten from.

    I had never heard of this:
    My uncle works at a restaurant, and last night at work, a busser came up to him and told him that he had just went to clear the plates from a table with an older couple, but before he could, the wife stopped him, and pulled a spray bottle out of her purse, and sprayed the food. When the busser asked her what she was doing, she said something to the effect of, ".. this is windex with a high concentration of ammonia... so none of the staff can eat our leftovers."
    I've got to ask,

    Do you do something to the food so it wont be eaten after you?
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    No, I would never do that, because I'm not a terrible person.

    The thought has never occurred to me. But is may have occurred to the staff to make the meal inedible!

    I am uncertain if that means that you do destroy the food after you have eaten on it, or if you leave your scraps edible for others.

    Why would anyone do such a thing? How ridiculous.

    This is the first time I have heard of anyone doing it. I read the reason why she did it, but, damn, thats some kind of a vicious attitude to have against other people.

    I ,usually, eat everything I have on my plate, lunch pack or whatever. Also, when we go to the Chinese restaurant, I, only, take what I know I will consume. Americans waste so much, it's pathetic.

    I doubt that the staff eats leftovers from someone else's plate. There is probably plenty of other food that's prepared in most restaurants that is left at the end of a shift that they could eat if they were inclined to. They might bring some leftovers home for their dog though. The result of this "lady's" action is probably that some poor dog may have to eat someone else's leftovers.
