Woman Shares The Horrifying Experience Of A Co-Worker Bringing Raw Chicken To An Office Potluck

When you work in an office, for some reason, co-workers think it’s a brilliant idea to throw a potluck. While everyone brings a different type of food (usually that they prepared themselves), not everyone has the best ideas in the culinary department. I will never get over the day that a former co-worker of mine decided to make mac and cheese sushi—it has haunted me for life.

Recently, Lily (@caveofbeauty) shared a photo of what her co-worker brought to their office potluck —and then proceeded to live-tweet the aftermath. Now, while you’re sitting here reading this article thinking that it was probably a bad recipe—you will be shocked to learn that someone thought it would be a fantastic idea to bring an entire bag of raw chicken to a potluck.

After people were curious as to why someone would bring in raw chicken, Lily updated all of her followers to let them know that her co-worker also brought in a deep fryer (way to go the extra mile, Bob). But, he didn’t bring any spices—AT ALL. In fact, he said that “sauces” are the “seasoning.” Someone, please, arrest this man!

The next tweet is a video, captioned:

“he’s touching [the chicken] with his bare hands too. Pls, send help. This has gone entirely too far. SOMEONE CALL THE POLICE.”

The updates grew more and more concerning. Lily revealed that the offender proceeded to touch everything around him with his raw-chicken hands, and even BIT INTO A RAW ONE to see if it was cooked.


This is what meat thermometers are for, people.

“He keeps offering me the salmonella,” Lily wrote, adding that she had no choice but to keep shoving pizza slices in her mouth despite it not being a part of her diet.


Unsurprisingly, a coworker fell ill immediately after eating a salmonella chicken wing. “I’m watching natural selection happen in real time,” Lily noted.

It seemed to never end.

The coworker who had fallen in legitimately had to leave the office for the rest of the day.




Yeah…what nightmare are made of, and what would be a fireable offense in any food establishment.

If you got nauseous, you weren’t the only one.

It’s upsetting.

It’s sickening.

It’s horrifying.

Authorities should have been notified.

We wish Lily the best of luck on her job search.
