'shit don't you dare use that 3bay sink. 2 are for the other department exclusively'.  assholes don't know what a 5 station sink is
I can't even begin to imagine how they'd react to as many as 12 bays.

I like my job and if I got paid only food and board as an entertainment consultant and gigolo on a cruise ship for gymnasts, I'd probably take it.

will not hesitate to throw out hundreds of dollars
Yeah, so about that.  I work in retail, in a store that has a grocery department but other departments as well.  We get most of our products from our own warehouses.  But we get food from another company.  As a result we use two different apps for inventory, one for food, one for everything else.  I don't work with the food at all.

Two months ago a manager for the grocery side of things told me about a computer problem they were having.  So apparently when they received the trucks with the food it wasn't updating the on-hand counts.  So the computer would be like, oh, you need frozen pizzas.  So the next truck has frozen pizzas.  But as far as the system is concerned we never actually got them.  So next time it sends more pizzas.  Forever.  The system is fully automatic.  This had been going on for a month.

Our store manager is, well he's an idiot in some ways.  He told the grocery people that we can't cancel trucks we can only turn them away, because canceling trucks looks very bad to corporate.  Unfortunately my store is very busy and miserable.  So, semi-predictably, one day the opening manager for that department called out and there was no one in the store with the authority to turn away the truck.  The result was that we unloaded some large amount of frozen food (at least an entire pallet, possible the whole truck, I don't remember) when our freezer was already full of duplicate items that had no empty locations.  We threw it all away.  Now we're allowed to cancel trucks.

This store manager is the same asshole who told us that we can't turn away customers or lock the doors until 11:59 PM, and we have to let them shop undisturbed.  Our store closes at midnight.  We've had an epidemic of cashiers calling out from closing shifts, I wonder why?

It depends on the staff as well. Once I went to a high end restaurant and all the staff was new. Among other gaffes they served us meat with maggots

The historical British knew how to deal with that, make maggots a feature, not a bug:

Quote
During his tour around Britain in the 1720s, the English writer, journalist and spy Daniel Defoe stopped off in the cheesemaking town of Stilton. He was served a plate of cheese with maggots around it so thick that a spoon had to be brought for him to eat them with. The cheese also contained smaller bugs called cheese mites.

Also, it's one of those interesting quirks, that around this time naturalists (scientists) had been believers in Spontaneous Generation for centuries, while the Church held that life only originated from previous life. Which just goes to show you shouldn't be too smug.

It was the stupid aged steak gimmick.  Someone fucked up badly while doing that, and then never bothered to check.

Definitely fucked up bad if flies got on your aged steak. 1688 was the date that the guy did the experiment with some muslin cloth to prevent maggots on meat. It's not rocket science to cover it.

they were morons. All the night was fuckup after fuckup. Right up until the end.

After "dinner" I asked if they had pu erh tea. They said yes. They proceeded to bring me regular black tea. Were actually surprised that I was able to tell the difference (THEY ARE COMPLETEDLY DIFFERENT THINGS. ITS LIKE ASKING FOR A BOILED EGG AND GETTING A POTATO OMELETTE. WHY LIE IN THE FIRST PLACE?)

The pharma rep actually footing the bill for the dinner  was livid

I think acknowledging them is probably a breach of moral laws though.

No, it's obviously neither illegal nor unethical, or else I wouldn't have posted it.

In case someone is not aware of this: the vast majority of meetings, workgroups and conferences worldwide are sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. They probably wouldn't take place otherwise because sure as hell goverments aren't footing the bill. There are ethical governance rules concerning this stuff.

(For instance, I have given sponsored presentations for the pharma industry, too.  One stringent rule was that I was not to promote in any way any products, of the sponsors or otherwise. Just raw clinical data.)

Also and by the way: these meetings (and the dinners afterwards) are part of the job. Flying X hours to lock myself in  a building giving technical presentations for hours and THEN go to have dinner with those same people to keep talking about the same things is not exactly my idea of fun. When I want to go on holidays proper I set up my own trip. As of late to go home, with some plans to go to the Greek islands soon when I'm able to work enough days together. With no workplace shit involved

That too.
TBH I'm warier about bullshit trials slipping misinformation into the guidelines (eg the recent Brentuximab fiasco-- ) than about my prescription habits being affected by some rep feeding me wormy meat
