    Condom found in Burger King sandwich

    Vermont man sues, claiming he bit into unwrapped condom in sandwich

    A man who says he bit into a Burger King sandwich and found an unwrapped condom inside has sued the owner of the restaurant. Van Miguel Hartless, 24, of Fair Haven, said Friday he bought the Southwestern Whopper at a Burger King in Rutland on June 18 and made the discovery when he got home and started eating it.

    Was it an actual condom? In our college days, my husband worked at a fast-food place. He cut his finger and needed a bandage. To cover that, he was required to wear a "finger condom," which was a small piece of rubber that fit over his finger. It slipped off when he was making sandwiches, and a customer found it in her sandwich.

    This would seem more likely than the other kind of condom.

    I thought the same thing, Mr. E.

    The news here reported that the worker at BK really hassled him about his "custom" order. He wanted it made "his way" and the cashier was not helpful or nice about it. The guy thinks the workers put it in there becuase they were bothered by him.

    Some times you have to wonder....remember the woman with the finger in her chili?? Was it at Wendy's? It just seems fishy.

    "Have It YOur Way". That's the BK mantra so what were they so miffed at? I worked in a BK back in the day and people would come in singing that song to me "Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce. Special orders don't upset us". That old adage is true "Never screw with your food handlers". Plus who just happened to have a condom they decided to slap on that sandwich? I mean if it was used? YUCK!

    Another message board I post on had a thread in general about people who work in the food industry. Many people who posted in the thread were line cooks and chefs in chain restaurants and they essentially said:

    "Yep, making all sorts of substitutions and requests at anything but a fancy restaurant or one well-regarded for its professional cooking staff is a bad idea. I would say a good 80% of eateries run on very close specs for all their dishes, and the chefs are often not well trained enough or have the time to make all sorts of weird modifications to the same dish they've made 100 times every single night. And by 'well trained' I mean having a professional attitude that is sensitive to customer requests and not deciding to mess with the food [like putting a condom] in the dish because they're too immature to deal with the situation rationally."

    The same goes for sending food back. This really pisses off a cooking staff (although in most cases it shouldn't).

    I would thank them that it was not a used one, not sue them!! LOL I kid of course, it is disgusting but I do not feel it is sue-worthy, unless it was used! I do think it could possibly be one of those things to cover a bandage...who knows.

    Why did this guy wait 3 weeks to file a lawsuit?
    I'm not sure i'm buying this one, even if this guy took a lie detector test, there are ways to beat the test. If i had bit into a condom, you can bet i would be contacting the police, the newspaper, lawyers right away not waiting 3 weeks.
    I doubt anyone would cart around a used condom with them to stick in a customer's food. It's possible, highly doubtful.
    That finger in the chili incident at Wendy's was another fraud case.

    I am not buying it. I can not imagine someone being so dumb as to put a condom on a sandwich. I could be wrong though.

    I'm not buying it either. I think the customer planted it.
