Three Burger King workers near Cleveland have been fired after a picture was posted of one of them standing with his feet in two bins of lettuce.
You hear stories about stuff like this happening, but I think most of us try to pretend it doesn't.
Is this just a rare instance grossery that happened to be captured for posterity on some idiot's cell phone? Or does it happen more often than we'd like to imagine?
Most of us already feel conflicted enough about eating at a fast-food chain. We have to plug our ears and hum a song to drown out thoughts of what the food is doing to our health and what the corporations' business practices are doing to the planet. Pictures like this make fast food that much harder to stomach.
Maybe that's a good thing?
