Rather than Onions before sausages, how about customers use eyes before feet, then there is no slipping over. 

 

Honestly!

MadEngineer: Someone please do an official info request to acc for any slipping on onion accidents

To a point yes but there are those in our community that have less than ideal vision or due to disabilities cannot look down easily. The elderly are vulnerable with this and a fall can be life changing or shortening.

PM Jacinda Ardern and Aussie counterpart discuss Bunnings' bizarre sausage sizzle

 

Now we will have the formation of a bipartisan and inter-country bureaucratic parliamentary committee to discuss for over a year and then possibly legislate the order of ingredients.

That should happen. It is serious, the impact on health, and onion growers is horrendous. OSH needs to rule here. Onions need to be mandated to be dried. Tomato Sauce is the next cab off the rank, that also needs to be dried, and add some friction enhancing GE modified substances. An Onion Tax would allow this issue too be dealt with, right now. 

 

Cotton wool needs to be subsidised.

How about if you drop it you pick it up and put it in the bin? That is the base of the issue people dropping their rubbish and just leaving it on the ground for someone else to deal with.

Exactly. Whilst I do understand there are a small percentage of the population who geniunely struggle with some parts of mobility, legislating to help the others, is making excuses for people being responsible for themselves and those whom they affect.

I don't see what the problem is. I always have bread, sauce, onions, and sausage on top. Only way to keep the onions from falling out and making a mess!

 

Just my 2c worth.

If you read my later post I explained. I have a heavily suppressed immune system. What could cause you a few hours discomfort can kill me.

This sausage sizzle issue seems like a jono&Ben/guy William segment
