So, I brought in cupcakes for my friend's birthday today...

Gross. Not just the actual scraping of the frosting. I'm more grossed out by people who can eat sickly sweet frosting by itself like that. Freaks.
This is just so rude and gross.

I can't imagine anyone doing this. Yuck.
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
People at work can be so rude and gross. One time a coworker brought in a huge jar of pretzels for everyone to share. This one woman opened it up and scooped up a handful. No one else wanted to eat them after she had her germs all over them.

The workplace is not their home. No touching food that others will be eating. No double dipping, etc.

This cupcake incident is ridiculous.

ETA: This is why I don't like pot lucks at work when others cook food from their homes.

I'd blame the intern!

So church lady asks her if she wants to buy one of her dinners again. She politely tried to tell her no, that she had to be careful of what she ate because she was also carrying a baby. This woman went off going about how don't let anyone tell you that something is wrong with my food, this is church food it's good for you. My friend still tried to tell her no and the woman said that's okay, "God would be watching her."

Did He watch her when she threw up church lady's dirty lasagna?

I don't do potlucks or the like. There are too many closet nasty people.

Really!!! Just TAKE the entire cupcake, eat the frosting as you wish, and then throw out the cake part. How difficult is that????

Whenever they have some kind of department party and they have a sheet cake, he goes over after the cake is gone and scrapes up all the leftover icing that people left stuck to the cake plate and eats it.

He would never eat the icing and leave the cupcake though. A) He's not tacky and B) I think he likes the cake part too much

What makes it "church food?"

I guess I'm in the minority, but I would still eat the cupcakes. I'd cut off the top quarter or half inch, but then I'd eat the remainder. I hate frosting, anyway. And my gluttonous streak wouldn't allow me to walk away from not one, but TWO uneaten free cupcakes.
Ninja.......

ninja, hell if i know, maybe she prayed over it?? all i know it i gave my coworker the eye when she said that woman told her it was church food, it was good for her.

gemini she had paid for the food first and puked after!!!! lmaoooooooo!!!!

lotsa there's a lady that sells empanadas but she seems clean to me and EVERYONE even my preggers coworkers buys from her so i feel safe. i've seen how she is at work so i'm not too squeamish.

the rest of them...darned coworker blew her nose AT THE TABLE while we were eating breakfast one day. i could have keeled her dead. and she was like she was going to cook for us one day. two of the other girls ate her dinner but after seeing her blow boogers at the table i couldn't bring myself to let her pass me a bottle of water.

Honestly, I've always found it funny how people freak out about how someone might or might not be clean.
Really now, tamales? You mean those things that go into boiling water (212 degrees) and simmer for a good long while? Oh no, someone may have dipped their spoon in there and surely the bacteria from her spit will survive and destroy us all! That's one magic loogie!
I wonder if you ever eat at restaurants. We are clean, there are laws in place, we have no intention of doing anything that could get someone sick, but food gets touched. Food gets tasted (with a spoon that goes into a bain of water, with the water being changed regularly so it doesn't look like a filthy mess).
The idea that other people aren't as clean as you when preparing food is just a bit silly and paranoid. I have no doubt that in empressri's case the food was improperly prepared or handled, but even then I would guess it had more to do with temperature abuse than church lady not washing her hands after going to the bathroom or something.

but double that with someone making food at home. how do you know if their house is clean? i had a teacher in grade school who could put her FOOT in some ribs!!! you'd want to suck the bones clean.

then i went to her house for tutoring one day and saw how filthy her kitchen was. the garbage can needed to be bleached and scrubbed, hell maybe even replaced. the walls were covered in grime. don't let me mention the sink or floor. i get that from my mother, i don't eat everyone's cooking cause everyone isn't clean. i'd eat from a restaurant sooner than someone who cooked food in their house that i know nothing about.

though some restaurants...heard about the famous junior's in brooklyn?? had daggone rats running around the place. it didn't look the cleanest when i was in there last but RATS running rampant?

i remember this bagel place i used to go to for years. the man always wore gloves and whatnot and everything seemed okay. 3 years later in the same place and i see a biiiiiiig king kong sized roach in the cookie display case thingy. gasped loudly and then saw two more huge roaches. i never went there again.

this is why i do a lot of eating food from my own house lol

Silverware was recycled if it looked like it hadn't been used, 2-3-4-5 day old food was reheated and still served, stuff that was supposed to be cold (salad greens, cheese, milk) that had been left out would be stuck in a blast chiller until it had reached an acceptable temp., and yep!, food was tasted with the spoon used to stir it. In North Carolina the restaurant's rating has to be posted--my mom is really paranoid anyway, and she will only eat at restaurants with a score of 97-102 (they can get extra credit). I'm pretty sure they're 'surprised' when they're inspected, too, so they can't clean everything or warn staff beforehand.
