Ask Poopreport: Got Sick On My Own Restaurant's Food
After a rather horrific ride on the Porcelain Express, "Stew" asks for advice:
I work in a restaurant as a waiter. We are allowed to eat for free at the end of the night if something is left over. If nothing is left over, we can eat for half-price. Last night, some soup was left over -- beef french onion. I ate a huge bowl, the bottom of the pan. It was delicious.
Two hours later I was in a world of pain. I was lying on the bathroom floor, caught between shitting myself and puking. I had my friend take me to the emergency room. On the way to the ER, I shit my pants and stained the passenger side seat upholstery in his car. An hour later the ER doctor said I had food poisoning. (My friend thinks the nurse called me back so quickly because I stunk.)
My question is do I go after my boss to pay the bill for my friend to clean his car and for my ER co-pay? I'm looking at 100 dollars for the ER bill, and my friend says a car wash will charge 100 to 130 dollars to steam clean the inside of the car. The only thing I had to eat after 5 p.m. was that beef french onion soup. Do I risk being fired if I give my boss the bills? I shit myself in my friend's car, PoopReport! Help me out!
