If a restaurant worker has a horrible cold, would YOU want him making YOUR food?

My fiance is being a dumbass right now. I've told him that it's not sanitary for him to go to work as sick as he is, but he won't listen >:(

  • That is disgusting. If I saw someone with a horrible cold handing my food, I would call the health department on them right there on the spot. That is gross. That is a good way to get other people seriously ill. yeah I agree with you dumbass.....

  • NO! My husband has worked off and on in the restaurant industry and always calls in when he is sick! It's hurt us for money at times, but people don't want sick people making or serving them their food!

  • THANK YOU! I worked in a restaurant for a year, and I know what goes on behind the scenes. I never went to work when I had a horrible cold, it was gross, and I know I wouldn't want to eat something that a sick person made...especially if I didn't know them. His excuse is "Oh but we need the money." *sigh*

  • I'd go if I were him or if it was my husband then let the manager make the decision. People do it all the time. People need money. We go intown and are around sick people all the time. Were around germs all the time.
