Fighting with Food

Have you ever worked in the food service industry?  At a fast food restaurant?  A summer camp?  A fancy diner?  Then, poet Matt Guenette, author of the brand new book, American Busboy, wants your horror stories!  Take a look at his blog here.  Drop him a note about your favorite food industry story by this Friday (August 12).  He will judge the best story and the winner will get a copy of American Busboy!

Off the top of my head, I can’t think of any real horror stories from my brief stint in the food industry.  The best I can come up with is the year I was a waitress at a summer camp, and we had to fish dead ants from the maple syrup containers.  A sweet, but untimely death, for these little guys.

  1. How do they get in? I went to pour syrup on Vincent’s waffle recently, and he got a pile of dead ants. Boy was that not the reaction I was expecting. Yikes! We’re sticking [ 😉 ] with the bottles the syrup comes in from now on.
