I just threw up in my mouth a little bit, mostly because I used to work down the street from that Ruby Tuesdays and had a loottttt of coworkers that used to frequent that place. Clearly that manager didn’t give two shits about a clean restaurant, people don’t ask for to much when going out to dine on some cheap apps and drinks…but fruit flies and mouse shit might be one of the things they don’t really want near their food and drinks.
