Hundreds of people probably use the same fork at a restaurant before it's finally thrown out, amirite?

I used to work at a steakhouse and did the ordering.. I can't honestly remember ordering forks more than a couple times in 5 years. You lose more to servers dropping them in the garbage and not picking them out than to actual wear and tear. Let's guess approx. 300 forks in the restaurant, 600+ meals on a busy night. So if weekends are always busy and every other day is average, every fork will be used by about 500 different people every year.

*Thousands lol

More like thousands, possibly even a million in a busy enough restaurant

That's insane. Interested to hear what someone who has worked in a restaurant has to say about it

Yeah I know it's probably washed but since this pandemic, I've realized how GROSS everything we did was. Eating off that fork. Going to BOWLING ALLEY BDAY PARTIES which means bowling with a dirty bowling ball, going and eating pizza with the same hands, going back to bowl, going back to eat.

GAG. We were gross.

I remember being a kid and going to one of those arcade/pizza places. I can only imagine how many people have gotten sick from those spots

I've often wondered if I've ever used the same fork or spoon from a previous visit to the same restaurant.
