These gross food stories will have you alternately laughing and gagging at humanity's potential for gluttony. But beware: after reading these gross buffet stories, it might be a while before you can muster the courage to return to your favorite all-you-can-eat establishment.
Heart Attack or Flatulence?
"Once witnessed a man eat four plates of food piled high (I'm talking Southern food, so it was all fried foods), claim he was having a heart attack and clutch his chest, then let out the biggest, most foul-smelling fart I have ever experienced.
"After he laughed about it, he continued to go back and eat two more plates of entrees, and a plate of desserts."
A New Dipping Sauce Applicator
"I once saw a really fat dude at a Chinese Buffet smear ranch dressing from his wrist to elbow, then as he ate, he brushed the food along the dressing before putting into his mouth."
And They Say Kids Aren't Useful
"At a Golden Corral, I saw a family come in. Mom, dad, one kid, and one baby. The mom got a high chair on wheels for the kid, and then left the kid in a car seat at the table. She pushed the high chair to the buffet and proceeded to stack plates on it like her own personal table on wheels.
"She never put the kid in the high chair."
Leave No Roll Behind
"Watched a lady get a to-go box and fill it up to the top. The bottom of the Styrofoam was about to give out when she dropped an egg roll on the ground. She then proceeded to pick it up with her toes (she was wearing flip-flops) and place it in the box."
