A reportedly foul-smelling vagrant went to town at a Manhattan Whole Foods, shoveling food from a hot bar with his bare hands as employees watched helplessly.
The incident was captured by a New York Post photo editor as he picked up his dinner, with the drooling man standing to his right at the hot bar.
Pulling out his camera phone, the editor filmed with shock as the man dug through the hot food bar, often “double dipping” with filthy hands and utensils.
Employees simply laughed, claiming they’re not permitted to intervene, and are expected to notify the security guard.
“Oh, he comes here all the time,” said one employee. “We can’t do anything about it, we were told.”
Instead of punishing the man, the store simply replaces the food.
“I just throw out the tray, that’s our routine,” said one store supervisor, who declined to be identified. “We address the situation and throw the tray out and put a fresh one in the bar.”
According to the New York Post, the incident did not sit well with shoppers.
“Ew,” said one shopper. “That’s pretty awful. If someone’s hands are in the salad bar and the staff is laughing, I don’t want to waste my money here.”
