As next in line I could see the girl preparing an order. She put two buns on the board then reached into a pan (?) for two burgers and put them on the buns. She looked at them for a moment and then took them off the buns, put them back into the pan, and removed two others for the buns. I had not yet placed my order so I did not hang around to see what followed.

    Maybe they weren't fully cooked yet.

      Smart move, John! I once went to a Bluegrass festival, went to one of the concessions to grab a sandwich and the guy behind the counter was wearing a muscle shirt and put the loaf of bread UNDER his armpit. I walked away.

          Ha,thats a flashback to the summer of maybe,oh,1987.In a northeast Philly rowhouse neighborhood,corner ice cream store.The guy dipping the ice cream is wearing a tank top,shvitz profusely from the pits,leaning over the ice cream and dipping out the cones.I didnt get sick or anything,just calmly turned and walked out.People are lined up out the door,smiling in anticipation of their cones.I walked down to Bonk's Bar and had a few beers.
