    Well, it’s entirely possible that if the salad was prepared using bagged greens, that the roach was in the bag. Because a houseful of sick people is worse than temporary embarassment, I would probably tell my friend as quietly as possible–and let her decide how to deal. In this case, I would definitely want to be told if one of my guests found something like that–so, I think I would let that guide me.

    SCREAM bloody murder.I HATE BUGS.And then run.I always run when I am scared of something.If it was at a friends,I no of one who would run with me and laugh at my silliness 🙂

  3. SKL says:

    I would probably hide the bug and come up with some excuse for not needing to eat any more.

    I wouldn’t eat the sallad.. and I would say it!! We live in a place with lots of uninvited creatures. And among them the cockroaches are among the least harmful. Nobody would be ashamed of having them in the house. They somehow slip in – everywhere!! Just like the centipedes, and the geckos.. and in some cases even scorpions.
    It’s really no big deal..
    .. but in the salad.. ewww. How could I NOT tell it?

    I even own a cockroach spray 🙂

    I would freak my shit out and run for the door and never go back again 😉

    Inform the host and ditch the salad, my appetite would follow. I am very squeamish and detest gross things.

    The key word is “friends.” If it were a friend, I would make a joke out of it but I wouldn’t freak out. Bugs are one thing that don’t really freak me out but I wouldn’t be able to eat it. The other key word is “dead.” If it were taking a walk in the salad, that would be more creepy to me.

    I would switch salads with my friend when she was not looking. I would get her out of the room, somehow…. if I needed to!! Then, when she saw it in her salad~~~~ I would laugh hysterically!!! LOL

  9. mssc54 says:

    I would say something. LIke maybe…

    “Man how bad does this have to be to kill a friggn cockroach?” and then hand them the bowl.

  10. Just a Mom says:

    I would politely tell them that “I am allergic to roaches, may I please have a salad without one!”

  11. Gary says:

    YUK! I would bring it to the attention of my friend and stop eating due to the sudden loss of appetite. 😀

    I think I would pass on future dinner invitations as well. LOL

  12. kweenmama says:

    I would definitely tell my friend. My appetite for the salad would also be gone.

  13. SKL says:

    Holeycheese’s response reminds me of the time I was unrolling some toilet paper in a jungle resort and a little white lizard ran out onto my hand. I reacted automatically by flicking the lizard off and tossing the toilet paper – into the toilet. In that place, toilet paper was hard to come by, and I probably destroyed the only roll they had on the property. I felt badly about that, but it was truly beyond my control.

    Later I told my friend (who was from those parts) and she said yeah, those are the kinds of lizards that fall into your mouth at night if you sleep with your mouth open. Needless to say I didn’t sleep very well that night.

    Gawd what a question I think I’d probably just claim being full and let them secretly find it and ditch it afterwards saving them embarassment – I know I’d just about die

  15. holeycheese says:

    Though we have more toilet paper.. 😉

    I can’t sleep with lizzards in the room either. I know the mediterranean house geckos aren’t even harmful but I would never consider trying to sleep if I knew there was one in the ceiling.

    I would take a big bite, crunch, crunch and ask do I get to go on to the next challenge? Fear Factor Style. Honestly I would be pretty grossed out, but I would try and handle it politely as I could.

  17. Sue says:

    Hell no…I would scream bug and freak out! Not to be rude but because it would scare the crap out of me!

  18. woowooteacup says:

    I’d say, “Thanks for the extra protein!” and I’d pick it out. I wouldn’t eat it, though. And I’d carefully pick through the rest of the salad to see if there were any more, hoping my friend would offer me a new one.

  19. nikki says:

    I can’t believe I didn’t answer this!
    I’m afraid my reaction would kinda say it all. I can’t imagine me being quiet if I saw any kind of bug dead or alive in my food. That kinda makes me nervous about the salads I eat!!

    I would freak out….
