Will Have The Customers Steaming

, , , , , | Working | April 24, 2018

(I work in a sub shop known for steaming the meat that goes on the sandwiches. We get a lot of pregnant women coming in because we steam the meat; however, it only reaches 140 Fahrenheit, not the 165 it is supposed to, so it’s fairly common for pregnant women to ask us to steam it twice. The owner is working today, and he is known for cutting corners to save time and money. We get a web order asking us to double-steam one of the sandwiches.)

Me: “Hey, do you want me to wait to toast the bread until the steamer goes once?”

Boss: “Nah, I’m not going to double-steam it, anyway.”

Me: “Uh, okay, but if you give some pregnant lady listeria, it’s all on you, dude.”

Boss: “Meh, I can live with it.”

(This was after he told us to only heat beef-based meatballs to 140 Fahrenheit, not the health department required 165. I no longer listen to him, and I just do things the right way.)
