Drunk Man Finds Staff At Waffle House Asleep, Makes Own Food

What a hero.
By Alex Firer
  • Sometimes the pure heroism of our fellow man is an all-encompassing energy that envelopes us all in a hurricane of glory and inspiration that makes us gaze at the world and go, “Yes. Yes, there is room for beauty.” Such is the feeling that, I, at least, have surrounding this man who went into a Waffle House drunk, and — upon finding everyone asleep — made his own meal. He even documented the event — a grand and glorious event it was — with a series of photos showing him making his glorious meal. His name was Alex Bowen, and here he is making bacon.

  • You can find more photos — sleeping workers, grilling, and all — on Alex’s Facebook page.. What did Alex Bowen make as the Waffle House staff all were asleep in their little corners? Why a “double Texas bacon cheesesteak melt with extra pickles,” and you know what? I bet it was good. Waffle House itself released a statement saying —

    “For safety reasons, our customers should never have to go behind the counter,” the company said in a statement provided to ABC. “Rather, they should get a quality experience delivered by friendly associates. We are reviewing this incident and will take appropriate disciplinary action. In a related note, obviously Alex has some cooking skills, and we’d like to talk to him about a job since we may have something for him.”

    Nice, you got a job at Waffle House my man!
