Shish

There is outrage about the case of the kebab shop owner who carried on making kebabs whilst the body of a dead employee lay on a sofa in the rear of the kitchen. There has been so much outrage in fact that the owner, one Mr Jaswinder Singh, 45, (I'm not sure his age is pertinent to the story but hey now you know) has been banned from ever catering again.

I'm dying for a kebab myself....

That's right they have taken away his, no doubt filthy, apron and forced him to permanently pause with the pita. It wasn't just the dead body or the fact that he carried on cooking and serving whilst said corpse was laid out on a sofa in the kitchen there were many other health violations as well. It would be reasonable to say that Mr Singh took a very relaxed approach to all matters relating to health and safety. Well he had a sofa in his kitchen, is that not evidence enough?! There was meat oozing blood covered in flies, people smoked in the kitchen, and there was a dead rat under a pot. An Environmental Health Officer said there was an, "awful smell". No shit Sherlock. Actually there probably was some of that floating about too.

So now they have closed his Pappu Sweet Centre in Wolverhampton (England) and given him a fat fine for his troubles too.

The dead employee was said to have died from natural causes but I'm not so sure. I mean there must have been some environmental impact on the poor chap what with all the smoking and rats and what have you. And lets face it Mr Singh doesn't seem to have been the most caring sharing employer.

But there is another way of looking at this story. Instead of castigating and chastising Mr Singh maybe we should be holding him up as a shining example of good service. I mean there was a dead body in his kitchen yet he carried on preparing and serving his customers. Not for one moment did he let the fact that his work colleague and no doubt chum had passed away get in the way of stuffing kebab meat into a pita pocket. I mean I cant tell you the number of times I have had to go to my tables and apologise for delays due to the chef having injured himself or something. But death? Death would close our restaurant no question. But not Mr Singh, he worked through the mental anguish of it all.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the sort of service that gets you crew member of the month in a KFC and yet he finds himself out of pocket and out of business. Shish, the worlds a tough place for a man who only wants to serve.....

Of course he could just be a very dirty man.

More from the BBC here.

i don't know if i should be laughing or be totally outraged, sugar!!! *snickering* xoxoxo

Manuel said...

savannah: I know what you mean.....go for both....

Medbh said...

A dead body is one thing if it's fresh, but rats in a kitchen?
Oh, hell no.
They are an abomination.
There was just a story on the CBC last week about a restaurant in Chinatown here with nesting rats all over the place.
Horrid.

Manuel said...

medbh: yeah rats are just vile but continuing to work whilst the body was there was as callous as it gets...

Silverstar said...

Which makes you wonder if he'd even noticed the guy was dead. Gross. Rats and flies, also very gross. Not eating there, theirs enough danger eating in my own kitchen. But there are no rats there.

daisyfae said...

Mmmm.... kebabs.... (and as a matter of fact, yes, i have been drinking...)

Old Knudsen said...

In a world full of crap service and waiters going on smoke breaks every 5 mins its good to see someone dead-icated to serving the public ignoring the blood, flies and bodies and not even stopping to smoke but smoking while working to get the food to the customer the man needs a medal and his job back.

belfastyouthworker said...

dead-icated. ha!
i'm not long after a kebab actually. i went to marmaris in bradbury place, it looked clean enough...but after this story though i think i've had my last!

MJ said...

Did they dock his pay?

Simon said...

The kicker is as the end of the article is says "Now under new management" - but would YOU go in there?! Oh HELL no!

sheepworrier said...

byw: The marmaris!? Jaysis, your a braver one than me!
The kebab place just off bradbury place, round the corner from KFC on the donegall road isn't too bad, tho they do give me funny looks every time I go in there.

belfastyouthworker said...

chirpy chirpy sheep sheep: do you mean 'kebab house' on the corner of sandy row? if so, it rocks!

Maxi Cane said...

Maybe the poor dead guy was involved with gangs and he needed to be punished so was sent to sleep with the shishes?

Melissa said...

That is so funny, yet so gross.

Manuel said...

silverstar: it appears that he actually called the police about the dead body.....weird...

daisyfae: awh......your licking the screen eh?

old k: my sentiments entirely....!

byw: crikey! rather you than me....bithika every time.....

mj: probably did his pockets too..

sheepworrier said...

byw: thats the very one - they frickin pack those pittas in that place. Fuggit you've made me wanna get one tonite - a kebab for lunch would be too strange.

'sleep with the shishes' - heh.

Manuel said...

simon: no it looks grim.....

sheepo: yeah you get the "you're not from round here" sort of look....good kebabs though.....

byw: yes, yes it does

maxi: bwahahahaha

melissa: but isn't it....!

sheepo: do it.......go on......mmmmmmlarge doner with chilli sauce and salad......

sheepworrier said...

Manuel: Mmmm om nom nom nom burp.
I'm frickin starving here! A tuna sarnie will have to do till dins, dammit.

Manuel said...

Sheepo: get to a restaurant.....waiters are suffering in this time of crunchy credit

paddy said...

jesus tittyfucking christ - a dead dude in the kitchen. No amount of colour coded chopping boards and hairnets can compensate for that.

Blondefabulous said...

What kind of meat was on the kebabs that guy was serving?

Kind of reminds me of a few slave drivers I have worked for....

Manuel said...

paddy: bwahahahaha quality.....

blondie: probably lamb but who knows with kebabs, it could be anything from snout to entrails.....

problemchildbride said...

God, it's like Royston Vasey.

I wonder if the guy was tempted just for a second...you know... to slip a couple of fingers and toes into the pot - cut down on stock-cube expenses.

fatmammycat said...

And once again I must point the paramour in the direction of something that might finally get his widdle brain to REJECT eating kebabs in places just as you describe. Cheers M.

belfastyouthworker said...

bithika rocks too! have you ever been to ryan's across the road? s'amaziiiiiiiiing :)

Manuel said...

sam: bwahahahaha! best comment ever.....it was a local kebab shop for.....

fmc: every kebab is a challenge.....eat on is what I say!

byw: it's okay......used to go almost every night of the week, then I moved house.....
