    I gave 3 dozen eggs to the office manager to make noodles. She opened them and there was a poo smear on 1 egg. She complained about it. All I could say was that I did not wash them(GF did). What would have been the proper comment?

    I would be tempted to say that it wasn't poo it was flavoring. But seriously, maybe remind someone that these are actually coming from a place where chickens aren't kept in boxes their whole lives and that small amounts of 'dirt' sometimes are on the eggs, besides, they are FREE

    wellll... first off I think it was rather rude for her to even make such a statement given they were FREE EGGS [​IMG] and secondly, I would have just said "Oh..guess one slipped by in the inspection process..thats chickens for ya! [​IMG] "

    I give away all my extra eggs (and the ones that I do sell at hubby's work I only sell for 1.50 a dozen) so if someone complained that ONE egg had "something on it" I wouldnt be giving that person any more eggs, period. Rude plain and simple - if they want organic eggs from someone else - they can pay the $4.50 a dozen becauses thats the going rate for most. [​IMG]

    Nice that you gave away so many eggs.

    Not everyone gets it. They should see what the rest of their food supply comes into contact with. And they probably aren't a hand washer either, so they add the so called flavoring to everything they eat. Just thinking about that should bring a smile to your face everytime the office manger has a bite!!
    Don't sweat the small stuff. Sometimes less words speak volumes.
    Have a pleasant day. I am off to contaminate food in the restaurant LOL

    Maybe I should have offered to show her how to wash things!

    I'm thinking that she may not be the recipient of free eggs in the future.
