A long time ago, my mom and I picked up a friend of hers and we went to a local Chinese food buffet. This place had a thing where you could get a pound of food for $5 in a takeout container instead of sitting and eating at the restaurant if you want, so that was our plan.
The three of us were browsing around the buffet line with our takeout containers, adding what we wanted to them… and then I noticed my mom’s friend doing something disgusting.
He was eating a chicken wing. Like, right in front of the buffet line, hiding his face behind his takeout container. And then he took the chicken bone and put it back in the buffet tray.
I walked over to my mom and told her what he was doing, and at first she thought I was joking. So she walked over towards him and now he was standing there eating a slice of watermelon right off the buffet, and then putting the rind back in the tray.
So my mom is like, “What are you doing!?” And he’s like, “Don’t worry, I do this all the time! They never notice!”
So of course both me and mom are panicking, worried that they’re gonna call the cops or something because of this loser. We basically pretended to not know him and continued to fill up our containers the right way.
After a couple minutes, one of the employees walks up to my mom and tells her that they noticed what the guy was doing, and they noticed that we were also uncomfortable about it and didn’t intend to blame us. But they warned her that if she doesn’t get him to pay for the food in his container and leave immediately, they’ll be calling the police.
So of course mom tells him that we need to go. Now. And he just brushes it off like, “I don’t care. They’re not gonna do anything!”
Well, me and mom walked up to the front, paid for our containers, apologized, and walked out and left him in there. A minute later, you can see and hear him shouting with the staff. He throws his container on the ground and food splatters everywhere. He storms out, shouting insults as he leaves, and of course gives them an, “I’m never coming back!”, to which they reply, “You’re not allowed in here no more! We’ll call the cops!”
So we’re standing out by the car, waiting for him. Of course, we yell at him for being a piece of crap. We get in the car and the next thing you know, this idiot starts pulling chicken wings and Chinese donuts out of his pockets and eating them.
We dropped him off at home and never spoke to him again.
