I really didn't want to know that
When you go to a nice restaurant, do you believe that everything that your food touches is completely sterile? Are you sure that your recyclables are actually getting recycled? When you rent a car, can you that nothing gross has gone on inside of it? Let me tell you, this is a dirty world we’re living in. There’s all kinds of unethical and gross things going on behind the scenes, and this may put a bad taste in your mouth.
I worked at [a major chain] and they taught me how to pinch the fry carton just right while putting the fries into them so that it looked full, but actually wasn’t.
I only had 1 customer call me out on it. He shook the fries out into his bag and poured them back into the fry carton himself and it only filled up half way, so I had to give him more fries. I was impressed and embarrassed. It’s been 7 years and I can still see his face. (ExperiMENTALbunny)
Worked at a bike rent shop where we told customers we sanitized the helmets we rented via ‘heat treatment.’ ‘Heat treatment’ consisted of having some sorry high schooler run up to the top of the building, essentially the attic of this old wooden structure, and just leave them in boxes, or, if they were wet, hung from nails to drip and dry.

I used to work in a jewelry shop that sold cheap silver/gold painted plastic jewelry, none of it being real metal, but every sale I had to up sell one of these $5 ‘polishing cloths.’ You can’t polish a turd; the only thing this cloth did was rub the cheap paint off the plastic faster. I felt like such a con artist. [deleted user]
