At 55, I often doze off.
About 6 years ago, as we drove to Florida, Sorenne said she wanted Waffle House for her birthday.
A hungry, slightly inebriated man knew just what to do when he stopped by a South Carolina Waffle House early Thursday only to find the restaurant’s staff snoozing: He cooked up his own meal, snapping selfies along the way.
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.”
He told WIS that he wouldn’t normally have gotten behind the grill.
“I give all the credit to my old friend vodka,” Bowen said.
