When you are dining out at a cafe, restaurant, fast food diner – Do you fully inspect your food carefully before eating? And when you proceed to eat, are you still always cautious and scanning your food? Not necessarily about dining out but even for home cooked meals from yourself or others.
For me, I do quickly inspect my food prior to eating but when I am in the moment of eating – I do not notice much but my fiancé on the other hand does and is very precise. Sometimes even a ‘black dot that I would think is a pepper piece’, he will inspect it to make sure especially since it is obviously just one black dot there and not a lot like how if it was a dash of pepper would be. It is given that foods are exposed to bugs after all – you find bugs in your yard, growing in your crops, fruit trees, vegetables and so forth. But it is the matter of thoroughly washing.
One time while we were dining out at a cafe. We were enjoying our salad until my fiancé found a camouflaged green bug can you spot it in the photo? We flagged the server and asked her about the bug. She said it was “normal” and that it was eatable. That was strange. Typically, the server would apologize for the inconvenience or offer a new salad, refund, anything instead ignored and continued on. I personally would have been better to not find the bug then to know about it. I honestly lost my appetite. What are your thoughts? Would you rather know there is a bug or not. A different scenario, we found a bug in our soup and that is hard to prevent because there was no lid on the soup when we scooped from it but we were not obligated to purchase, so we did not knowing there was a bug.
