Food misadventures

After just this minute eating a tin of spaghetti that only contained 3 noodles, I got to wondering; SE, what are some of your worst dining experinces? Be it in a resteraunt, at home or at someone's house have you got any uncomfortable, gross and/or funny stories?

Another time I opened a muesli bar and there was maggots in it. I complained to the company and got a year's supply of muesli bars. Unfortunately after that experience I couldn't eat another muesli bar for a long, long time

    Rane that is a lie

    stop lying

    anyway this one time I found a hair in one of my french fries

    I was seriously drunk though, so I used it as a divining amulet like they did on Charms

    cracked up my friends something good

    so, not that bad of an experience, overall

    I once cut into a peach, and split open the core, and dozens of tiny cockroaches poured out onto the table.

    I made a frozen pizza while pretty drunk, and somehow got little bits of the plastic wrapping stuck to the base of the pizza

    the taste of hot plastic is still pretty vivid in my mind

    Ive never had bugs or anything really horrifying but i have bitten into what looked like a really awesome peach only to find that it had rotted from the inside out, I've tasted worse things (not by much) but the sheer disappointment was almost as bad.

    I am pretty kitchen illiterate and I keep fucking up these burgers when I try to do them on the stovetop/in a pan

    they keep turning out charred on the outside/raw inside. awful.

    guess I should stop being lazy and clean the grill but still. horrible cook.

    i once made one of those packages of instant oatmeal, the flavored kind in the brown paper pouch

    anyway

    i'm eating, and i feel something noooot quite right on my tongue.

    so i swallow and i inspect the oatmeal carefully under the bright flourescent lighting in the kitchen.


    there are tiny worms everywhere within my oatmeal.

    it was gross.

    if it's charred on the outside and undercooked on the inside, you have the heat too high

    Oh man once I ordered the ribs from Burger King, and man, those were worse than I expected them to be, and I was expecting Burger King quality ribs.

    Like, little chunklets of bone surrounded by a thin layer of charred meat.

    I can't help but wonder why people didn't line up to eat shellfish from Taco Bell

    ergh

    also my brother got some awful 'patty' from burger king or mcdoanlds. it was still partially frozen, and had some unidentifiable gelatinous something on it. my dad told him to just microwave it.

    cockroaches aren't even really that gross. i mean, bugs are kinda gross anyway, cuz they look weird, but generally cockroaches are only as dirty as their surroundings.

    or maybe i'm thinking of rats.
