I did find that, DC, in the proverbial apple. But to my surprise, i was not grossed out. I don;t know why. Ten years ago I'd have been freaking out.Ewww those are gruesome. I guess it's better than finding half a worm etc in your food that you've just bitten into ....
Some people seem to need to make a scene to show how important they are. What jerks. A fly in your food, ok, but a fly flying by? come on. It happens, there are doors, doors have to open for customers to come in, flies smell food and fly in with them. Sure, smokers shouldn't be holding the doors open, but some flies are inevitable.We had a customer totally freak out on Saturday when a fly passed her table (didn't land on anything just flew by) and to be honest if it was me I would have been bothered but I wouldn't have carried on and walked out without paying after my family and I ate our meals. That was what she did.. we remade everything and when it was time to take it to them they were all gone. They left emply plates and did not pay a cent.
I have been on the smokers to stop propping the back door open as insects get in, and even bees come in and I am petrified of bees. When the owner brought the fly issue to the KM and I I told him straight up who the offenders are for leaving the back door wide open and to take it up with them. I don't even like having the front door propped open but customers do that on weekends when we are lined up and there isn't much we can do about that. We can ask them to keep it closed while they wait but sometimes they don't and that's why we have a bug lamp at each end of the kitchen.
