If there’s one thing that you should make note of, it’s the FOOD SAFETY INSPECTION notices that are posted in your local restaurants.
There are only two reasons why an Inspection Score is not posted: the manager forgot to do so, or the score is embarrassing to the owner/manager.
The former is seldom likely to happen, as not having the score posted itself is a violation to be noted on the next review. The latter is more the case. Some locations do everything they can to hide a low score from being visible to the inquiring public, from placing it far away behind a counter – visible, but not readable; to placing it behind other paperwork on the wall – also visible, but obscured.
We do know of one fast-food chain location that was so proud of their “100 out of 100” score that they made a 2′ x 3′ poster of the inspection and placed it at the front door. No hiding from that.
A common theme in today’s pop culture is how concerned kids are with when is the “right time” to lose their virginity.
Entire movies have been made on the subject – Tom Cruise’s Losin’ It is probably not on the higher end of his personal accomplishments, we’re fairly certain. But what once was a Very Special Episode of Blossom or Family Ties, or one of those mandatory Afterschool Specials that we all rushed home to watch together – it’s now become almost a punchline in any major sitcom or movie being made today.
