Default (My rant) PSA- don't cook for a Superbowl party if you have the stomach flu...

21 of 25 infected... we were the lucky 4 that decided to leave once we heard the cook was sick. The rest stayed around & ate at the dip & wings... the first one launched all his goods 8 hours later, the rest launched the next morning.

Are people really that dumb???? Who would eat wings & cake made by a puking woman? What puking woman would cook a cake for a party full of kids & stuff???????? What host would allow this food to be served? WTF is wrong with people?

This is the 4th party/get together in the past month we were invited to that had sick (puking) hosts or guests. No one cancelled, most got sick.

Parents, stay home with your sick selves/kids. People, use your friggin brains.

My semi-germaphobic head is about to pop off...

4th party? That is way beyond coincidence. Man if this is true - you need to change your circle of friends - real bad. I have never even heard of a sick cook infecting food and the guests. Most food based sicknessess are biological - so if the host had something biological that spread within hours that is real bad. More likely, I would think, the food was already contaminated or not cooked properly - but to happen more than once a year - sometin wong !

Drink fluids get rest. Eat at home!

Sounds to me like most of your "friends" have a need to pass around what goes around.

-we are not sick, I knew enough to get out of there.


-Our circle of friends... just about everyone I know has gone down this year. Everyone I know with kids have had the entire house go down, some are on their 2nd bout since Oct.

-Your point (no to pick on you or flame, just for discussion) shows the lack of knowledge most people have about food poisioning/stomach flu.
Some cases are bacterial, salmonella & e-coli, but most are viral. Noro-Virus & rota-virus... Noro virus is the traditional stomach bug, its passed on from person to person via contact & food. That's how a chef can sicken many in one evening, he's sick, doesn't wash properly, all are in for a fun ride.

Food prepaired by dirty cooks & shellfish are the #1 cause of speading the virus. The virus is the #1 cause if GI sickness, more than all of the bacterial causes combined.

If people knew this & how easy it is to stop... life would be easier. Wash your hands, stay out of the kitchen & keep your kids home.


I am just tired of getting this crap. We've had it for the past 4 years running, sometimes twice a year. They say the last 3-4 years have been the worst on record, by a long shot.

This is why I rarely eat at any kind of event like that, or pot luck, or buffets even. Especially in the winter when these outbreaks are more common.

People need to wash their hands more often and regularly disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs, faucet handles, frig door handle, anything that gets touched a lot. Especially if a person in the house has been or is ill.

That's craziness!

I know the neighbor just had what appeared to be the Noro virus.......I/ we stopped all contact for three weeks Past their troubles. I also told Kelly (after she was better) to totally air out the house, wash all the bedding, towels PJs, etc. and to scrub the house down from top to bottom. Who needs that crap!

Why would the host not cancel the party if somebody who lives there has a stomach bug? If I had the flu I would not want 20 people over at my house. I certainly would not be cooking for them if I did. Something is wrong with the people you are hanging out with. I can't believe that everyone that stayed and ate got sick. Are you sure it wasn't food poisoning? If not, everyone could use a little work on their immune system. Take some vitamins, get some rest, do something different. I would think it would be rare for everyone that came into contact with a sick person to get sick.

Maybe the people did not like you?

When I get sick I spread my pestilence. You know that jerk you can not stand at work? I call that person "a target for biological warfare". Sneeze on their phone. Touch the desk drawer knobs. "Borrow" the pens and stapler and whatever. Then when they are sick I have a couple of jerk free days at work. HA! I win!! My disease reigns supreme! And nobody can prove anything!!

So - did you ever consider that the party hosts did exactly what they wanted to do???
