If buffets make you nervous because of the many patrons serving themselves, you’re not alone. A Golden Corral employee in Florida made a case for being skeptical of what goes on behind the scenes, too. He filmed a video showing raw baby back ribs and other meat sitting next to a dumpster outside the restaurant. In response, Golden Corral issued this statement, according to CNBC: “A video was recently posted showing an incident of improper food handling at our Port Orange, Florida location. None of these items were served to a single customer. All were destroyed within the hour at the direction of management.” If you’re still a believer, check out the best buffet in every state.

We’re all for maintaining cleanliness at work, but one employee took things too far when a video went viral of him bathing in a Wendy’s kitchen sink. The 90-second clip shows other employees championing a young man to get in the sink for a quick dip. According to Newsweek, Department of Business and Professional Regulation inspectors paid a visit to this particular Wendy’s after the video made the news. Aside from the prank, the location passed its inspection. This is the real reason Wendy’s burgers are square.
