The Question Club
You're attending the wedding of a close friend. Your friend is a borderline nervous wreck, who wants everything to be perfect. She's being such a perfectionist, that even the slightest thing out of place would ruin the whole event for her, and crush her. After the wedding, there's the reception. You have to go to the bathroom, and are in a stall. In the stall next to you, someone is finishing up after taking a smelly poop. They walk out to the mirror, but you hear no water run. Someone comes into the bathroom and says "Chris, we have to finish. Hurry". Chris rushes out of the bathroom, without washing his/her hands. Later on, you walk past the kitchen, and you see someone handling the entree with the name tag Chris. At this point, no one's been served. You're not sure if Chris washed his/her hands in the kitchen after they exited the bathroom, but they are handling the food. Your friend is extremely high strung and probably can't handle a major episode. What do you do?
I apologize to my friend, but I tell her what I saw, that there's a chance the hygeine of the food has been compromised, and that maybe it shouldn't be served. Let her deal with it
Confront Chris. Find out if he/she washed hands after exiting the bathroom stall. If not, demand they wash hands now before handling any more food. Pretty much, just preventing further ickiness
Say nothing, but refuse to eat the entree.
Tap on a glass, and make an announcement to the guests that they shouldn't eat the entree, because one of the chefs didn't wash their hands
This is a question about confrontation. Look within. Would you really walk up to someone and ask if they have poopy hands, or order someone to wash their hands?
