We always suspected this happens but did I really just see this happen? As I stood in line at the breakfast buffet at LaQuinta Inn somewhere in Florida, a grey-haired gentleman with his blue blazer, obnoxious bow tie, and Nantucket red pants embroidered (while not him see picture for twin of this man) with a lobster design was bemoaning to me the fact that he was not sure if the pot in front of him was oatmeal or gravy for the biscuits.
So without hesitation, he took the public serving spoon, dipped it in the pot and sampled a taste putting it back down with disappointment in his eyes. He then mentioned to me, that in fact, it was not oatmeal. Now I’m still trying to wake up and I’m quite groggy but I’m not taking any chances on what I thought I witnessed and while I appreciate his help since I really love biscuits and gravy, I decided to take a pass on that meal choice. AAAAAARP’d Again!
After that, I’m thinking, what the hell should I do? I guess I have to alert the management to remove the spoon. Well, LaQuinta isn’t a cheaply priced hotel for no reason, not an employee in sight. So in my shock and panic, I did what most people would do, I did nothing. Oh well, the poor suckers behind me are shit out of luck. So life lesson here kids, for the rest of my life I will only eat the boxed cereal at these places, you might too.
