UBetter watch out. UBetter not cry. UFood -- the fast food chain that tried to live at the intersection of "delicious and nutritious" -- most likely served me up a helping heaping of food poisoning on Sunday. I made the scene at their location at Logan Airport in Boston on Sunday night and, while I like the idea of nutritious fast food on the go, I was suspicious from the start. The cashier who took my order wore soaking wet rubber gloves that dripped all over the money I gave him and the change he handed back to me. At first I didn't think anything of it. I was more annoyed with his attitude. He tried to mix what looked like Arabic currency with my change and, when I pointed it out and asked for American currency, he seemed angry at me. In any case, the idea of touching sopping wet money right before eating was enough of a concern that I doused my hands with Purell. I ordered a vegetable-rice dish with tofu and ate it quickly before my flight. About five hours later, I knew something was wrong. My stomach was rumbling and I felt queasy. By the time we landed, I knew it was food poisoning. While I can't prove UFood was responsible, nothing else I ate on Sunday (or Saturday for that matter) would have caused it. I guess there's a lesson in here somewhere. Next time you're at UFood, speak clearly. The cashier probably thought I said Ptomaine instead of Tofu ...!


  1. Yuck that isn't good. Hope you will feel better soon. I feel bad just reading about that sopping money.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you got sick. That does indeed sound like a suspect situation. I hope it passed quickly!

  3. Yeah, I would say UFood is where you got sick from. Get well soon.

  4. I hate food poisoning, hope it cleared fast for you. Always a risk when you travel.
