    Having worked at Burger King, the sink was probably cleaner after the bath.

    If you think that's the worst thing that happens even at the best restaurant in town ...
    Still pretty nasty though.

    I once walked in on a similar incident. I walked into the restroom at a Ruby Tuesday's (first mistake) in Jackson, Miss., (second mistake) and saw a cook washing his hair in the sink.

    I like this quote from a company spokesperson:

    "We have also taken appropriate corrective action on the employees that were involved in this video."

    appropriate corrective action?

    I guess that means they were sent to a Burger King re-education camp?

    Even with shit like this, the weasel words come out.

    I believe I know of the Ruby Tuesday's of which you speak. Thankfully, I have never eaten there. I have on a lark, however, chanced the Vietnamese restaurant up the street. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if the soup was actually dirty mop water. It was not very good.

    The one out on Lakeland, past Smith-Wills.

    After watching the video -- and don't get me wrong, this was completely nasty; the restaurant should be fined and those jackasses fired -- compared to some of the other stuff that has probably been in that sink, I'm not sure whether this was the worst thing I've ever seen.
    Think of all the nasty, greasy utensils, burger racks, fryer parts, dirty hands, etc. that have been through that sink. Just from a rational standpoint, compared to all that, how does this stack up?

    That's the one I was thinking of. Thanks for the heads up. We'll head for some of the other chain restaurants further up the road in Flowood that have B+ health certificates on the wall.
