So my friend brought a tray of really mouth watering baked macaroni and cheese with pasta and meat. Basically lasagna. He got it from the airport, he works there and a passenger couldn't bring a tray of pasta on the flight she was on, so he brought it home.

Would you eat that?

He also brings home shampoo, conditioner, bathroom products, and vitamins.

Who brings lasagna to the airport? But no, I don't think it's likely to be a terrorist plot, so I might try it.

That would a little iffy because that dish has probably had quite a journey . . . set out to take on the trip, the ride to the airport, waiting, more waiting, waiting some more, being told you can't take a dish of lasagna as carry-on, finding someone to give it to, the friend setting it somewhere so they can remember to take it home, having other employees poke at it and ask "What's this?", taking it home, setting it on a counter, taking it to share with Bricona.

In other circumstances, I would probably snarf it down.

But no, I wouldn't eat someone else's food. I draw the lines at family and chefs.

Nope, I wouldn't either. I've had students bring in cakes and such for me (yes, I was a brilliant teacher, they loved me, what can I say? :D ). I would always take the cakes, thank them, go home and dump them. Can never be too careful. Then of course I'd go back and tell them they tasted like crap and never make me anything again, and where is your damned homework, you're on detention.

No. Anyone goofy enough to try to bring a big-ass tray of lasagna as a carry-on item I would suspect of not being able to safely prepare and store food. Unless the passenger was a big fat guy with a red beard wearing shorts and orange crocs--in which case it was Mario Batali and risk of food-borne illness be damned! :) But yeah, I think anyone who's ever been near a Food Handler's License could tell you that's a real dodgy thing to eat. It's been in the danger zone for way too long!

Also--using random strangers' toiletries? I just threw up in my mouth a little bit picturing someone adopting a slightly-used deodorant stick that's been adorning the pits of a putrid stranger.

Why did you ask, Mister, if you're just going to go off all willy-nilly and eat it anyway? Let us know if you die...then we will know to say no when a stranger at an airport offers us lasagna.

yeah, I don't mind pasta with stuff in it. But if it's not made together as a dish...I need one of those sectioned off plates. People look at me like I'm ridiculous! What's wrong with bringing your own Batman plate to elegant restaurants? I say nothing.

I remember that discussion. But at least he knew you in a sense, and you were both at the same table. (It would've been great if you'd spit out a chunk of gristle onto the plate and hidden it under the meat before he overtook the leftover steak...)

And unless I were very hungry and out of sorts, I wouldn't go near the well-traveled lasagna mentioned in this thread. It's had too much "room temperature" downtime for my liking, especially if it contains meat.

My wife got annoyed at me today when I got up from the table after our Thanksgiving meal and started putting all the leftovers into the fridge, rather than stay at the table and talk to the relatives. I love Thanksgiving leftovers as much as the next person, but it starts to weird me out if they sit out at room temp for a couple of hours.

Well, when you think about it, anytime you eat out your food is made for you by strangers. Who most likely don't have your best interests at heart. Or decent hygiene skills. Especially if you're in a public place like, say, a drive through window.

But if a professional (as mentioned, fellow Mario Mr. B) made me lasagna, I'd eat it, because if I'm gonna die, I want to die happy.

I keep reading the topic as

would you eat a stranger's foot?


And then I think: yeah... maybe... I dunno... and then I realise it's about food that someone has randomly had to ditch to get on an airplane and I go all eeeewwww...

But if it was a foot, and I was like really, really hungry? Yeah... maybe... I dunno....

This is a very good point. Unless you prepare the meal yourself, you really don't know exactly what's in it.

Being vegetarian I definitely wouldn't eat that particular dish. In general I like my food to be fresh so if it's been hanging round an airport, probably not.

11-26-2010, 10:02 PM
Oh, hells no. I won't even eat food prepared by some of my relatives. Have you seen how some people live?

Example: My bro is three years older than me (which means he's been old enough to know better for a loooooong time). He put a piece of chicken in the microwave to warm it, but then got distracted and forgot about it. Three days later he opened the microwave and found the chicken. He ate it and, lo and behold, got food poisoning. That's what he gets for being a dipshit.

The answer is No. No. Not in a million years. No. Blech.

So, Ew.

Would you eat that? Nope. I have trouble even eating food someone who's not a stranger prepares. I've gotten sick at my MIL's house because of improper storage (her back porch is her second refrigerator), and she runs out of soap in the bathrooms and forgets to replenish it. And bake sales--there was a woman who always baked for them, yet she had mice in her cabinets (saw mice droppings in the sugar bowl once).


He also brings home shampoo, conditioner, bathroom products, and vitamins. Maybe if they weren't opened....

On Mardi Gras, some complete stranger-dude passed our house with a bag of cracklin's in hand, and offered us some. I, of course, dove my hand right in and snapped one into my mouth before the Cajun could say, "No, thanks."

The guy walked off, and the Cajun turned to me. "You really ate that?"

I chewed and grinned. "He offered! I thought this was the south. And you Cajuns have all this food an stuff."

"Not from some drunk dude off the street fresh from Mardi Gras."

He still remembers it and balks at the idea of accepting food from strangers.

I'm a bum. :) I'll accept freebies, as long as the hands are clean.
