South Carolina resident and Waffle House enthusiast Alex Bowen had the time of his life the other morning.
At about 3am, a drunk Alex found himself at Waffle House wanting to place an order for food. After waiting about 10 minutes for someone to take his order — no one showed up. He decided to hop behind the counter and make his own food.
“That’s when I got hot on the grill with a Texas bacon cheesesteak melt,” Alex told ABC News.
While he was cooking, he noticed a Waffle House employee sleeping. He said the restaurant worker “didn’t wake up the entire time.”
A Waffle House manager was amused by the stunt. They said that while they were impressed by Alex’s cooking skills, customers should never get behind the counter — for safety reasons.
However, the manager may be interested in offering Alex a job.
“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.”
