To be honest I am not the biggest fan of ‘Jimmy John’s’, average bread, basic toppings, pretty much the equivalent of Subway. However, when its 2 a.m. after the bar, I’m drunk as hell and ‘Jimmy John’s’ is the only thing open, that shit tastes like heaven.
Now when you’re working late night at a sandwich shop and business is slow, boredom is bound to ensue. And what do you do when that happens? Well, if you happen to be the two men in the video below apparently that mean it’s time to play jump rope with a large thing of raw dough. Oh and of course this happened in Florida of all places (seriously what is in the water in Florida?) According to the Huffington Post:“The video which was posted on SnapChat shows the employees of a Jacksonville Jimmy John’s franchise literally playing with their food, including using the dough as a jump rope, First Coast News reported Monday.Franchise owners James and Rebecca Williams have reportedly fired the employees responsible for using food products as physical education tools. The franchise owners released this statement to the media:
‘Our investigation confirmed the dough used in the video was immediately discarded after the incident, however we do not condone this behavior from our employees and appropriate action has been taken to prevent this from ever happening again.‘”
Personally I doubt anyone working part time at Jimmy John’s and snap chatting themselves playing with the raw dough is going to be too distraught over being let go. The franchise owners, however, are definitely in some hot water. After the video went viral a Florida restaurant health inspection group decided to do a “random” inspection and found this particular Jimmy John’s guilty of 41 health violations, gross.
The full Snapchat video can be viewed below.
