This guy bought a cheeseburger, but the receipt revealed a gross extra topping
One of life's simplest pleasures is the very first bite of a fresh burger. Just picture it now: the squelching and crunching of beef and lettuce meeting teeth; the explosion of cheese, sauce and pickle; the kaleidoscope of flavour that soon fills your tastebuds. There's nothing like it, is there? Just writing that has me craving a quarter-pound of the good stuff.
But sadly, some people feel the need to ruin perfection, and although it may not seem like it, there are many ways to destroy a perfectly good burger. Some people use the wrong kind of bread, or fail to ensure the meat is nice and tender, but there's also another thing to consider: the toppings. Are you one of those people who likes to put mushrooms in their burger, or even pineapple?
Both of those are outrageous, but regardless of your peculiar palate, there's one thing you never want to discover in your burger, as one man discovered in the most horrible of fashions earlier this week. Like most of us last Sunday, Curtis Mays decided to celebrate Father's Day by hanging out with his family, taking his daughter and granddaughter out for a nice burger at Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria, located in the Queens area of New York.
This particular restaurant has an A rating from the Department of Health, but as you're about to see, that doesn't necessarily count for much.
There, Mays says that while eating his burger turned out to be pretty non-eventful, a mix-up with his order prompted this grandfather to ask for the receipt. Big mistake. He saw something printed on that receipt that was enough to retroactively ruin any meal.
At first glance, everything looks pretty normal with this burger order. Cheddar cheese is a great choice, and although I don't 100 percent agree with having the meat well-done, it certainly seems above board. But then, under the prompt to toast the burger, the server printed the phrase "please spit in it too". Now that's something you don't see every day. Ew.
"I ate my burger already, I felt like I was gonna throw up," said Mays to local news outlets, and I don't really blame him to be honest. But what's weirder is what happened when this grandfather went up to the till, to try and make sense of this mad world and this mad restaurant. Mays asked the waitress who gave him the receipt to explain.
"I asked her 'why would you do this?' And she couldn't explain it. She said she didn't do it, so I was like 'who prints out the receipt?' So she said 'I take it up there and print it myself'. So you did it? Why are you lying about it? She just walked off."
Really weird, right? Mays says that the waitress had seemed pleasant up until that point, calling her "very nice", but in the wake of his unexpected burger topping, Curtis Mays says the restaurant manager fired the offending waitress right there on the spot. When asked by the manager how he could compensate Mays eating a spit-infused burger (and knowing about it too), the grandpa simply replied: "How can you compensate somebody for spitting on your food? I ate this already."
I reiterate: ew.
