Chili's Babyback... Metal Shards?

Okay, a couple nights ago I went to Chili's with a buddy, and we were served a metal strip in our chips & salsa. I have included a picture of it. This is NOT A HAIR.

The manager came out and justified that such may be a result of the deep fryers stripping from the wear of time, but had I bitten into this, it might have scratched my 24k Gold tooth. Be cautious of what you are eating next time you dine out.

Mmmm...metal strips...*drool*... they taste great you know. Especially the copper ones, they're my favourite and taste mildly like strawberry ice-cream.

kidding about the tooth... or am i? and no, they didn't give me a free meal. He only gave me the chips without charge because I asked him to; had I not I bet he would've still charged me for them.

This sounds like a job for... (cue superhero music) Michael McCord!

If he'd been there with you, you would've gotten like a free pair of shoes and a business suit or something.

My dad once got a cheeseburger at Shoney's (back when people actually went to Shoney's), and the cheese had been melted on the burger with the plastic wrapper still on it.

And my brother once found a live grub in his food at a Chinese buffet.

Oh, but the best story didn't even happen to me. Sara and I were at Red Lobster (Red Globster, as J-Man would call it), and next to us was a table with about eight or nine people. One of the women at this table complained to her waiter that she found a piece of glass in her salad (the "piece" she was holding up looked about the size of a grain of sand). Then the whole table started complaining to the manager, and they were demanding that all eight or nine of them get their entire meals for free (not just the one woman, and not just the salads, but every single thing any of them ordered). I felt so bad for the manager because he kept trying to tell them that he couldn't do that, but they were freaking out, especially the woman. She was acting like she was going to die from her salad.

ha ha, scooter, that reminds me of the time one of the tables at the restaurant where you worked had a group of people who were sitting as though they were in a mournful state as if someone had died with their heads bowed and their hands covering their mouths in awe, and when the manager came out it was because there was a hair on the side of one of the plates, so they were trying to demand free food for the whole table.

Sometimes I hate customers. Usually they're NOT always right - I'm so glad to not be in the food industry anymore.

well, you betta be careful about advertising that 24k gold tooth...people will beat you up for that these days...i guess these days, people expect other people to be more understanding about misfortunes...but that metal strip is kinda small...i guess you could have only swallowed it and punctured your esaphagus or lung and died or biggie, right???, did you get to go see elizabethtown yet???
