Waitress Wins Argument By Eating Cockroach

If you're eating while you're reading this, we'd like to gently advise you to set your food aside for the duration of the article. Done? Okay. Here we go.

A waitress at a restaurant in China's Sichuan province successfully freaked out everyone in the joint when, after one diner complained of finding a cockroach in his food, picked up the dead insect and popped it in her mouth.
"It's only a cockroach!" she told Zhang Yen, the customer who found the bug in his salad. Upon noticing it, Zhang confronted the waitress.

Her reply? "No matter which restaurant you go to, you will always find cockroaches in the food. It is very normal."

Zhang then told her that if it was really so normal, she should just go ahead and eat it. Which she did.

Mic drop?

The owner of the Jinsha Era Plaza hotel in Chengdu, where the incident took place, has since apologized, explaining that the roach probably crawled in from outside (which makes things better... how?). He also said that the server, Jin Kuo, has been given a pay cut.

Commentators on social media sites who watched a video of the scene said he should've given her a pay raise instead.
