Have you seen this sign in restaurants lately?


Questions:

1. What happens if an employee doesn't wash up afterwards?
2. How do they know the employee washes up or not?
3. Does the same apply for patrons?
4. See #3 and then consider you're in a buffet restaurant...
5. What about breastfeeding?
6. Do you think they have that sign up at Olive Garden restaurants?
7. Do you think Rachel Ray follows those instructions before taping every show?

And finally:

8. Isn't Olivia Newton-John hot?

1. Thank you for posting this.
I can never remember if I first dry hands, then rinse, then soap, or if it's soap, dry, rinse ... Okay, I get it now ... :think: -- soap, rinse, dry! :woohoo:

17. Good idea!
Whenever I'm in a bookstore and see someone looking at her books, I say, 'She's got no knife skills. I'm waiting for SNL to do a sketch on her cutting her own fingers off." People give me strange looks.

7. we do where i work... as well as extra signs in the 'employees only areas'
plus, whether we've had to go out of the area or not, we have to change gloves and wash up again ever half-hour.

8. We have a similar one
Edited on Sun Jan-21-07 07:07 PM by TheCentepedeShoes
in our restroom at work. And we're not in the food business.

I know it's designed to cut down on illness, but the major source of "illness" seems to be big teevee football weekends.

Edit: fumble fingers

11. I have seen something similiar
I cannot remember all the restaurants or other businesses that have them.
Employees who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom are more likely to cause customers to be sick, although other practices could make customers sick and a non hand washer won't necessarily make anyone sick.
They don't know for sure, but the sign is a reminder.
It should apply to patrons but most places are afraid to tell patrons what to do. Patrons are generally less at risk of making other people sick at buffets because they use tongs or spoons (if they do things right) where restaurant employees might touch food with their bare hands in some instances.

12. I will adress your concerns point by point
1) People get sick
2) finger sniffing supervisor
3) no
4) ok, now I am never eating at AA China Buffet ever again
5) My wife always makes our son wash his hands before breastfeeding...
6) not the ones I go to, but they don't actually cook there - its all boil-in-bag and microwave (not kidding)
7) Yes, only someone washes her hands for her
8) Oh yeah, and I'll bet she washes up before eating :)

any other questions?

:) :) :)

15. That reminds me of this.....

Actual pictures on the Homeland Security website.:rofl:



If you have set yourself on fire, do not run


If you spot terrorism, blow your anti-terrorism whistle. If you are Vin Diesel, yell really loud


If you spot a terrorist arrow, pin it against the wall with your shoulder


If you are sprayed with an unknown substance, stand and think about it instead of seeing a doctor


Use your flashlight to lift the walls right off of you!


The proper way to eliminate smallpox is to wash with soap, water and at least one(1) armless hand.


Michael Jackson is a terrorist. If you spot this smooth criminal with dead, dead eyes, run away


Hurricanes, animal corpses and the biohazard symbol have a lot in common. Think about it.


Be on the lookout for terrorists with pinkeye and leprosy. Also, they tend to rub their hands together manically.


If a door is closed, karate chop it open.


Try to absorb as much of the radiation as possible with your groin region. After 5 minutes and 12 seconds, however, you may become sterile


After exposure to radiation it is important to consider that you may have mutated to gigantic dimensions: watch your head.


If you've become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand, remember to close the window. No one wants to see that.


-- If you hear the Backstreet Boys, Michael Bolton or Yanni on the radio, cower in the corner or run like hell or sit down and give yourself a blow job.


If your lungs and stomach start talking, stand with your arms akimbo until they stop.


If you are trapped under falling debris, conserve oxygen by not farting.


If you lose a contact lens during a chemical attack, do not stop to look for it.


Do not drive a station wagon if a power pole is protruding from the hood.


A one-inch thick piece of plywood should be sufficient protection against radiation.


Always remember to carry food with you during a terrorist attack. At least you'll be able to enjoy a nice coke and apple before you die.
