When life gives you lemons...go into the kitchen and make your own lemonade.
South Carolina man Alex Bowen set off to carbo load after a fun night drinking, as one does, and he discovered that the staff at the Waffle House was as tired as he was.
"It was around 3 a.m. I was pretty inebriated," Bowen told ABC News.
After waiting at the register for a good ten minutes, Bowen checked outside for any employees, but when he couldn't find anyone awake, he took matters into his own hands.
"That’s when I got hot on the grill with a Texas bacon cheesesteak melt," he said.
Only when he was cooking did he discover an employee, fast asleep. But rather than disturb his slumber, Bowen opted to make his own food.
The Waffle House executives managed to freak out at this breach of protocol.
"For safety reasons, our customers should never have to go behind the counter. Rather, they should get a quality experience delivered by friendly associates," their statement read. "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."
