Years and years ago, back when I was a mobile maintenance spark (electrical engineer), I called into a waste water treatment works for lunch.
The guys were great, welcoming (yes all male btw, I don’t care about wokeness, all welcome though).
I’m not joking, they offered me some fried food.
I looked at (and used the Mark 1 sniffer nose) the pan on the cooker plate, and noticed wee small rodent footprints gradually dissolving as the heat was upped, on the lard.
How long was that lard being recycled and used by the rodents?
Bad enough it being a literal sh*hole…but I thought surely the canteen would be an hygenic oasis.
Nope. I will say this though- apparently those people (working on sewage works) have really elevated immune systems…they don’t get sick.
That is anecdotal.
I’m glad I don’t work ‘in the dort’ as we say, fresh water only.
I made my excuses and left- sandwich at the local filling station.
