An Issue With A Tissue

March 19, 2010

in Food & Drink Stories

On Saturday the 13th of March, my wife and I went into O’C’s located in Avon, Indiana. We were greeted cordially and seated promptly. After sitting in the booth for a while, we noticed ants crawling on us and the table. We also noticed ants crawling along the window sill. We informed the waiter who promptly found us a new table and apologized for the ants.

After we were relocated, we placed our order. We ordered our drinks and a quesadilla appetizer. Drinks were delivered and we placed our order for our dinners. The salads with the dinners were delivered before the appetizer we ordered. Halfway through eating my salad, I noticed the lettuce being real dry in my mouth. I pulled the lettuce out to find a tissue. A tissue that people use to blow their noses was mixed into my salad! If the tissue was used or not I do not know. At that time I was so mad I yelled at the waiter. He said he apologized and would go and get the manager. I replied forget getting the manager… we are done here! This is disgusting I said.

We started on our way out of the restaurant. The manager was following us. I spoke with him and all he could really do is apologize for the situation. At that time apologies were just not good enough. I was furious. And I am still very upset with the situation. I am also sending a report to the Local Health department and BBB. Things like this should never, NEVER, happen in a business. Our experience at that restaurant was a disgusting and unhealthy one.

How is he an asshole when it there were ants and a tissue in the salad? Most people would have been pretty mad because that is just disgusting.

You probobly faked this.

When you found ants crawling on your person and the table, that should have been a tip off to leave. I think some of you people enjoy being mistreated.

Years ago I was at a restaurant & noticed ants crawling on the table & on the nearby window sill. I asked to speak to the manager, showed him the problem and he just shrugged his shoulders & walked away. I left the restaurant, went home and then called the health department & filed a complaint.

That's what the OP should have done instead of being reseated at another table & ordering food.

There is no such restaurant in Avon Indiana. This story is a fake!

Jack – The story's author submitted the actual name of the restaurant, but the name was changed since we don't post restaurant names on the site (click here to see why.) We should have placed the revised name in parentheses to make that more apparent.

come on Jack, You're a really miserable person who does nothing but annoy people. I like the stories on here but EVERY post has a comment from you being negative in some way. Grow up.

I'm just wondering how he didn't see a tissue in his salad before he ate it ?????

most likely it was a piece of parchment or a liner, not a real tissue. unless this place flagrantly ignored health codes. the ants are gross but sometimes that happens unfortunately sometimes just because of changes in the weather.

You were first seated at a table displaying their ant infestation and chose to still order?

Are you literally stupid enough to think that waiters do every single job in a restaurant? The waiter did not prepare the salad and did not deserve to be yelled at by you. I'm not excusing the disgusting experience you had, it's definitely unacceptable, but you just ruined some poor waiter's day over something they had no control over. Some absent-minded cook dropped a tissue in the salad mixer and you yell at the waiter?!?! That's just wrong.
