All last year, I seemed to keep running into articles where people were denied food, over charged, banned from a restaurant or some combination of the above, for “hearty eating habits”:
A 6-foot-3, 265-pound man says a restaurant overcharged him for his trips to the buffet line, then banned him and a relative because they’re hearty eaters.
LOL… er Whut?
On his most recent visit, he said, a waitress gave him and his wife’s cousin, 44-year-old Michael Borrelli, a bill for $46.40, roughly double the buffet price for two adults.
Ok. Now lessee here. The last time I checked, most “all you can eat” buffet style dining spots charged a flat fee for *Gasp* all you can eat!! What gives?

OH Come on! Look. I’m a portly creature. I like my food. Very well done, if you must know. And when I go to an “All you can eat” Buffet, I expect to be able to consume ALL I CAN EAT at a single sitting. No extra charges based on my size or weight, or whether I could clear out the whole restaurant in a single sitting, or whether or not I happen to have flames instead of hair. That’s just their cost of doing business. After all, I wouldn’t go there if it weren’t an all you can eat joint.
Now thankfully, the places I go don’t hassle me. Probably because they realize I could incinerate the place with a wave of my hand. But it’s still unfair for the overweight human to become “persona non grata” just because they happen to have a healthy appetite. I wish someone would try that with me. I’d really show them exactly what “all you can eat” really means. In another age, my kind ate humans. Roasted, over an open flame. Well done. And washed them down with a gallon of Orc Ale… fFfFfFfFfftththh…
