Customer Cooks Own Meal after finding Waffle House Employee Sleeping
Alex Bowen had some fun in a Waffle House when he went for a late night snack. He arrived at the location in West Columbia, SC, and noticed something wasn't right. There wasn't anyone in the restaurant to take his order or cook his food. He saw an employee sleeping in the corner of a booth. He walked outside to see if any employees were out there, but he found no one. That's when he and vodka made the decision. If they weren't going to cook him some food, then he was going to cook it himself!
Bowen waltzed into the kitchen and cooked himself a double Texas bacon cheesesteak with extra pickles. Then he cleaned the grill, grabbed his food, and left. He didn't even tip himself, how rude! I can't believe the employee didn't wake up after smelling that delicious cheesesteak cooking on the grill!
Alex Bowen said in a Facebook post that he stopped by a Waffle House in West Columbia because he couldn’t sleep.
The restaurant’s employees apparently did not have the same problem.
“I walked back outside to my car to look for employees,” Bowen told WIS. “No one in sight.”
It wasn’t until he walked back inside the restaurant that he noticed an employee snoozing in a corner booth.
“Then it was go time,” Bowen told WIS. “(I) got hot on the grill with a double Texas bacon cheesesteak with extra pickles. When I was done I cleaned the grill, collected my ill-gotten sandwich and rolled out.”
Bowen snapped a few selfies at Waffle House and took pictures of the employee who fell asleep. He shared it on Facebook. Waffle House reached out, apologized, and suspended the employee for a week.
Here's the funny Facebook post that Alex shared to show his experience.
