Today, surprisingly, my roommate made a nice meal. Within an hour, I started throwing up. When I confronted her, she confessed that she'd used long expired ingredients, including meat, because she didn't want the garbage men to think she's "the type that wastes food." FML

The awkward moment when you find out your roommate is banging the garbage man.

@ #44 The hell...? Are you serious or are you just trolling? Obviously it's the roommate's fault, she knew what she was doing and fed OP the expired food. And you don't know much about food poisoning, do you? Dumb people make me mad.

OK, just so I don't have to see any more 'it can't be food poisoning after 1 hour' bullshit, here's how it works. The two main mechanisms for food poisoning where the food itself isn't actually poisonous, are through ingesting live agents like bacteria, virus, or parasites, or through ingesting the toxins produced by bacteria. In food poisoning where there is a rapid onset of symptoms (in the 1-6 hour range), it's generally due to bacterial toxins, i.e.; the food you ate was 'rotten'. In cases where you ingest a live agent, the incubation period can be from anything from a few hours up to several days, so people don't usually necessarily associate it with the food they ate. This is often erroneously passed off as 'stomach flu'. There are also things like CJD where symptoms don't show up for years. Long story short: STFU. This is possible.

kick that roomate out. she must be ******* retarted if she would feed you overdue food. and anyway, who would want the garbage man to like them? it's a pretty crummy job.

You haven't ever gotten food poisoning before, have you? I have gotten sick within 6 hours of eating fast food, and it was most definitely food poisoning. Don't start stating facts until you know them for sure, and have actually experienced it.

Food poisoning was the most miserable physical experience I've ever had. One of the worst nights of my life. And I had gotten it from high school food. Started vomiting within a couple hours.

Thanks - I thought it had a certain charm.

Your body will vomit soon after infesting "bad" food. Its' natural reaction is to purge itself' of the contaminants, retard.

#88, alternatively, maybe OP's roommate rarely cooks and THAT is the surprising part. Even if she did mean it the other way, my mum's made meals with expired ingredients before, and it tasted fine right up until it came back up.

Agreed.. Don't let her cook again, she might kill you. ;-;
