You order Pad Thai to go and pick it up on the way home. You're sitting on the sofa watching Big Bang Theory and enjoying your meal when...you see a hair. It's black and about 4" long. You only see the one.

Do you remove it and finish your dinner?

How much of it have you already ate?

GF says no.


Me... Depends on how hungry I am and if I have bread, peanut butter, and jelly on hand.

About half way thru. You're pretty hungry because you just had snacks for lunch at work. You're at home so you have other options. Including pancakes, obviously.

He did say it was 4" long.

I'd eat it. Psychologically it is gross, but having worked in restaurants before, I can say that, whether or not hair is in anyone's food, the conditions for hair getting in it are ALWAYS present, and there is always risk of getting foodborn illness, whether or not there is hair in it.

Ironically, the types of places that would require their employees to wear hairnets and rubber gloves (corporate fastfod joints) are usually shittier places to eat than places that don't (taco trucks, thais places, etc.).

I would remove it, check for other hairs to remove, and if there were no more, continue eating.
