I had never though about what's on the plates that come with food on them. UGH.

I used to wait tables and I can't tell you how many times I would send a plate (fork, spoon) back to the dishwashing room. Years later I was in a Thai restaurant and the waitress put down plates in preparation for our entrees. (For clarification, the owners were of genuine Thai origin, but they hired local help.) My plate had a large spot of something on it. I pointed this out and instead of trading out the plate, the waitress peered at it a moment, then licked her finger and rubbed at the spot, while adding the enlightening comment, " 'Tweren't no bug nor nothing." Ah, now I feel much better.
