    This. It's just hair. I've been known to eat that on purpose.

    I hardly go out for food at all- it's usually forced.. so if I have to be somewhere I'd prefer not to be, and spend money on a meal, I'd like it to be free of other humans' personal debris. Seeing hair in my food makes me think they may cut corners with other standards of health code, and it just puts me off. They'd get the doorslam from me.

    I don't think my hair's ever been in my food.. but I've occasionally found an airborne cat hair in my plate, at home.
    I take it out and keep eating.

    ...I don't have to make sense.

    now the real question, or another question because the first question was also real, what do you do when you find food in your hair?
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I'm used to the occasional airborne cat hair landing on my food at home, but I don't think I've ever found a hair in my food at a restaurant. It'd probably unnerve me a little but I suppose there are far worse things to find in one's food... that visual of pulling out a long, stringy hair does disturb me, though, so I'd probably return it if it came to that.

    If it was a piece of popcorn I'd had, I might eat it.

    I find myself very unable to eat an extra bite after finding a hair in my food. It only happened once where I had eaten a dish without careful attention that I pulled a string of hair a few inches long from my mouth. Quite disturbing.

    Not an issue. I just move it off to the side. It seems natural that hair is going to end up in food. I mean all precautions should be taken so that hair doesn't end up in food, but when it happens, I don't see the big issue. It isn't like finding a massive log of fecal matter. I lived pretty rough for a while in developing countries. During that period I'd take meals from whomever would give them to me . . . if there was hair, bits of roach, etc. I wasn't going to complain. I think the whole experience has made me really tolerant of non-traditional food items found in my food. It just seems, truth be told, wasteful to throw out food because you find one single hair. If I was at a restaurant I'd finish the food and show the hair to the manager afterward as a prompt to get on their staff about wearing their hairnets.

    Amino acids and protein, there are a lot worse things to find in ones food, it's not difficult to just move it off to the side.
