    When you order an “Athenian” salad with a side of pita bread, the last thing you expect to get is a giant metal bolt baked right into your bread. But that’s what happened to a Yahoo editor in New York yesterday. It wasn’t just any bolt, but a rather large, heavy one sticking right out of the bread, as you can tell from the photo. It’s shocking that any eatery employee would have missed this, given the obvious lump it created and the additional heft.

    As far as epic lunch delivery fails go, a bolt is bad, but another media outlet had it worse than Yahoo. Last December, an employee at The Wall Street Journal ordered a salad and found a frog in it.

    When contacted, the manager at the midtown vegetarian eatery responsible for the pita asked to see a photo via email. Upon examining the photo, he explained that it wasn’t a random bolt that had fallen into the dough, but a spacer used to set apart the pitas as they bake in the oven. Apparently the staff wasn’t paying attention. He apologized profusely and offered to put a gift certificate in the mail.

    The restaurant does have an “A” letter grade from the New York City Department of Health.

    So what about a refund? The manager couldn’t do that, he said, because the order was placed through the Seamless online delivery service.

    No one involved knows the difference between a nut and a bolt?


    Christ, not one poster before me or the fairy New Yorker knows how to work a wrench? That's a NUT, not a bolt, you sissies. These are BOLTS:

    Damnedest looking "spacer" I have ever seen. It's a Nut puking out a nylon thread lock looking device.
