Chef Modifies Dish To Account For Food Allergy, Customer Gets Mad Over Confusion

Those brunch and lunch and dinner rushes can get extremely busy out of nowhere. As a server, one moment you might find yourself trying to waste away the time left on your shift by folding a mountain of forks, spoons, and knives into beds of napkins, and the next moment you might find a literal tidal wave of hungry and impatient customers stampeding through the restaurant's door. It can pay off if you're already naturally inclined to keep cool under pressure, because it's only a matter of time before someone stages a full on temper tantrum in a restaurant. In this case though, it sounds like the chef was really just trying to make the correct moves based off the information they had. The ball kind of falls back in the server's court for failing to tell the chef exactly who needed the modified dish.

Vegan Employee Refuses To Eat Suspicious Cake, Coworker Cries

At this point, adults can eat whatever they want and as long as they don't try to get in other people's faces over it, no harm no foul. There are a surprising amount of situations where people decide to be unreasonable about other people's diets, like this Vegan employee who suggested a coworker eat their burger outside or this vegan who demanded a fellow wedding guest's vegan meal. It goes every which way, like this uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding or this irrational neighbor who demanded nutless baklava

Don't these people have work to do?

Husband Disregards Wife's Request For Him To Leave Lasagna Alone

As far as reasonable requests go, this woman's request for her husband to leave a lasagna alone that was specially prepared for a birthday seems completely reasonable. However, it sounds like her husband couldn't be bothered to take her request seriously. So, a pretty expectable drama ensues. I mean, what did he think was going to happen? And then he goes ahead with the cold shoulder in response to her reaction? Yikes.

Things That Look Like Tasty Treats But Aren't

It's a crying shame that the world is so full of tasty-looking temptations that look like food but aren't. There are beds that look like ice cream sandwiches, snakes that look like bananas, and boxes of mop heads that look like ground beef. If only we had the digestive capacity to enjoy a mop-burger, but alas. Things that look like tasty food surround us.

Customer Demands Kilo of Meat To Be Weighed, Gets Less Meat

The guy went through all this to have his meal weighed so things would be "fair" and by god he got his fairness. A hilariously similar thing happened with this customer who demanded a pound of wings and got less wings. With sassier staff, customer demands can go really off the rails like this rude gentleman who demanded no ice and got less than that.

Twitter Thread: Triscuit's Backstory Is Legit Electric

If there's one way to set yourself apart from the competition, it's clearly to make the extra effort to literally have your biscuits be baked by electricity. Of course, that goes without saying that plenty of other things are also baked with electricity. Triscuits just did a better job at capitalizing on the electric baking process with their actual name. Weird history knowledge is fun. 

An entertaining Twitter thread about the fascinating history behind Triscuits.

To many, Marc Rebillet is "that guy who makes beats in his bathrobe while humping the air and screaming" and honestly we see no problem with that. It's when German supermarkets take notice that things start to get real interesting. Because of that interest we have two full minutes of a man playing food and touching his nipples, which is better than a supermarket ad has any right to be.

There are some things that are better left to the imagination, and just generally never seen at all. While you probably wouldn't go and imagine that the prep process for something like Little Caesar's pizza sauce is an appealing thing to look at, this viral video from TikToker @tye_pearson really drives the point home. Apparently all that muck is just a ton of spices. Still looks pretty nasty though.

Guy Unknowingly Drinks Bacteria-Riddled Cranberry Juice For Years

Oh man, if you've ever endured the consequences of a severe lapse in judgment, this guy's story might make you feel better about it. As it turns out, you most definitely should not leave cranberry juice that's been opened out in the wild. The thing about a whole lot of juices when they're exposed to heat for long durations of time, is that they can end up turning into alcohol terribly quickly.

Restaurant Owner Has Special Wing Sauce Just For The Complainers

There's always gonna be someone who says a thing isn't spicy enough. So why not give them an opportunity to fly too close to the sun and get burned? Some customers will stand by their bad decisions, like this customer who demanded an extra hot tea and actually accepted it. But sometimes customers are so rude with their demands that they get the royal treatment like this rude gentleman who demanded no ice and got less than that.

Subway Under Fire For Iffy Tuna Sandwiches

Buckle up, because this could be experienced as a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the hardcore Subway fans out there. Or maybe, as a ride or die Subway aficionado, you've long since come to terms with Subway's decorated past. And not the good kind of decorated past. In this case though, we're dealing with something particularly fishy. Yep, it's the tuna. Or rather, we wouldn't be right if we were to call it tuna. 

Apparently, a study conducted by journalist, Julia Carmel, at the New York Times ended up revealing that of the 60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches that were collected, and then shipped off to a lab, no "amplifiable" tuna DNA was obtained. So, basically what is actually in those tuna sandwiches? Of course, Subway shrugged off all that investigative business and insisted that they're actually serving tuna sandwiches. 

There is a potential counterargument to be made that the NYT only tested 5 of the 15 species of nomadic saltwater fish. So, they might've missed something. Also, apparently the cooking process could be impacting the legitimacy of being able to obtain accurate results for when the Subway tuna is tested for tuna DNA. Even then though. Come on, Subway. While we're at it, it also turns out that Subway's flour recipe contains 10% sugar. If it seemed like their bread was uncharacteristically sweet, now you know why. 

An interesting story about how Subway's tuna isn't actually tuna.

Meals People Made With Hatred, Not Love

It's a totally ubiquitous thing to say. "Why is this lasagna so good? Well of course, it's made with love." Well sometimes food is not made with love. Sometimes cursed food abominations make it obvious that there was something else in there. It stands to reason that if love can exist as an ingredient, hatred must exist as well. Sometimes it's a combination of apathy and incompetence in the case of horrible things people ate out of politeness, but other times, all it takes is a tablespoon of hatred.

Irrational Neighbor Demands Nutless Baklava

Food allergies are nothing to be taken lightly, but at the same time, being allergic to something doesn't mean that the laws of reality can change. It's kinda like the time this person learned that mayo isn't vegan. It seems like this person did their best to provide a delicious alternative, but sometimes it's just impossible to win. Maybe this guy is just trying to cover for himself after wrongfully promising nut free baklava? For another ridiculous food story here's the uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding.
