Think about it this way: you faced one of the worst scenarios possible, and lived through it. Don't give up just yet. I'm sure if you tried again, you'd have a much better experience, and be well on your way to conquering your phobia.

I see most have never worked in a restaurant. There are much bigger things to worry about. I try to go to open kitchen restaurants only, after working 10 yrs as a kid in them.

Most countries have guidelines on the acceptable level of animal matter in food for human consumption. (Google how much rat hair their can be in peanut butter). It's pretty gross but you're unlikely to win a huge payout for finding a bug in salad.

I agree 53... It happens. At my dad restaurants we wash everything twice before cooking. Even then you can possibly check every single lettuce leave. What you cook at home has less of a chance to have a bug because the amount of food you are cooking is minimal. You can easily spot something. In a restaurant it's a different ball game, it's food to serve ALOT of people. If it happens people just point it out and we exchange it in an instant. Its a bug people, it's not going to kill you.

Exactly! Especially if its FRESH FARM FOOD lettuce grows in the ground..bugs come in the food ALL THE TIME..pick it out, get a new one, get over it..bugs are just frowned upon bc of our uptight ignorant American culture full of dumbass people who rather eat food full of poisonous chemicals to keep natural bugs off...they are chock full of nutrients and proteins..it means the plants your eating are actually good if they choose to eat it....being a germafobe is dumb anyway you're breeding yourself to be a weak individual and your children will be born with weak immune systems and not be able to fight off simple shit..go fuck yourself OP

It's very gross, but bright side you can complain about it. Or they can make you a deal; such as free meals for not getting told on. So there is a plus to this negative.

I found a huge black dead fly sitting right on top of my salad once, and when we told the waitress, she just laughed said "oh haha extra protein" and then walked away.
