"They told us we are not welcome there anymore," said Dershem, a repeat customer at the Dragon House buffet. "We waste too much food. But the buffet is all you can eat. And you know kids. They won't always eat everything and they want something else."
Dershem said she paid her $5.95 fee on Saturday but was abruptly told to leave after eating one plate of food.
Employees said they had been watching her family on previous trips to the restaurant and were fed up with her habits.
"They just take one bite and throw it away," said cashier Lin Huyen. "They take four egg rolls and crab ragoon, take one bite of egg roll and throw the whole plate. That is wasting food."
Dershem said she was shocked by the scolding and complained to management when she paid her check. "It was embarrassing. ... If it's a one-stop buffet, post it," she said.
Dragon House manager Kent Cao said his restaurant offers all you can eat buffet, not all you can waste. Dershem's family took food, didn't finish it and then piled on the same food again, he said.
"Shes done that too many times," Cao said. "We would welcome her back if she has respect and knows what she wants."
Bob Oberbillig, an adjunct professor at the Drake Legal Clinic, says the patron would have no legal case against exclusion from a business unless there are other factors such as racial discrimination or mental health issues.
"An establishment can exclude people if they smoke or waste food," he said. "It's still a private business."
that's taken from some AOL news thingie, it caught my eye.
First of all, if you've ever owned or had a family owned restaurant nothing chaps your ass more than waste - coz you are watching your money go into the garbage. Secondly, if you've ever cooked behind any buffet or buffet service style service - it will torque your nerves coz your hard work cooking etcetera has just gone into the garbage. Lastly...the word buffet doesn't mean ALL you can eat - it means food served informally or on a sideboard...And of course she's got TWO KIDS and was a regular at the buffet with her kids and boyfriend. Fuckin' stupid dipshit wasteful HOE...
Okay THIS kills me,"And you know kids. They won't always eat everything and they want something else."
Erm - NO! Not in my family, not me and the sibs, not the cousins, not the godkids, not visiting kids. Albeit we could eat what we wanted, when we wanted and however much we wanted - it was a simple ground rule that you finish what you take, so only take what you can finish. What the hell is wrong with people on the planet - all these breeders and feeders (!) think it's okay to rip through anything and everything and then wipe it off as "you know kids" - no bitch i don't know YOUR kids -
What a pollution of the gene pool.
I'm so tired of seeing people with such a flippant attitude towards waste. It's not because I lack...It's because I have experienced those who lack the most basic of things like food water and clothing - and to see people so flippantly throw things here and there just makes me IRATE. I'm so sick of people with overinflated incomes and underinflated IQ's act as if they are so much better than everyone. I'm happy to stay in my pastry cage. Sometimes I can barely hide the disgust from my face.
Okay that's that.
...Funniest Highway thing yesterday...
About 11pm last night beautiful brand new Range Rover passes me and then cuts right. The driver is singin' her ass off in a jolly ass mood. Once the car is about 2 car lengths ahead of me the front passenger sticks her head out the window and just sprays some martini barf all over the highway...Bwaa hahahahhaha funny shit.
Time to take a shower and go to work.
Are your words so sacrosanct now
that they are hidden deep in the chambers
of your holiest place...
