Waitress Stuns Guest By Eating Cockroach Evidence

Waitress Stuns Guest By Eating Cockroach Evidence

Chinese waitress Jin Kuo, 39, stopped heated debate with an angry customer who found a cockroach in his salad after she grabbed it and ate it to prove that it was perfectly harmless.

Businessman Zhang Yen, 43, called the waitress over to complain after discovering the dead cockroach in his salad at the restaurant on the Jinsha Era Plaza hotel restaurant in Chengdu, the capital of central Cihan's Sichuan province.

One of the people who was with him as a guest who was surprised at the waitresses claim that it was 'perfectly normal' grabbed his mobile phone and started to video the incident, including the waitresses insistence that it was nothing to worry about.

She said: "No matter which restaurant you go to, you will always find cockroaches in the food. It is very normal."

Enraged at the waitresses attitude, Zhang told her that if it was so normal, she should eat it to solve the problem, and then there would not need to any need to argue.

But to his amazement, that was exactly what the waitress did, picking the cockroach off the side of the plate and putting it into her mouth before swallowing it.

Shocked Zhang was left speechless by what she had done, and had nothing more to say. Instead he opened up his wallet, paid the bill, and left, still shaking his head in amazement.

The restaurant owner meanwhile has apologised over the incident and said that the cockroach had probably crawled into the dish from outside while cooking. She added that the waitress had been punished for not accepting the fault, and had been told she was going to get a pay cut for the foreseeable future to teach her lesson.

Commentators however who viewed the video on social media sites said the waitress should have been given a pay rise.

It is not the first time a staff member has tried to defuse a hygiene row by eating the evidence. In May, a restaurant manager ate a condom after customers found it in their fish dish. They had rejected their claim it was a condom and insisted it was a ring of calamari and ate it to prove the point.
