All-You-Can-Eat Buffet Employees Share Their Horror Stories

If you want to learn something about humanity, go to an all-you-can-eat buffet anywhere in the world and watch the people. It's like having a front seat to at least three of your favorite seven deadly sins: gluttony, sloth, and greed. So when Redditor HoneyCombr asked employees (and enthusiasts) of all-you-can-eat buffets to comment on the most gluttonous things they've seen, those poor souls shared with us some of the most horrific sights known to man.

Beware: you probably won't want to go to a buffet anytime soon after reading this.

Stay away from chocolate fountains

Sometimes gluttony has a happy ending

What? That's kind of genius!

That did not end how I thought it would

Don't... drop... it...

Did this kid grow up to be Joey Chestnut?

That takes guts

Mountain climbing can be exhausting

Kids are so annoying, right?

Your mom moves serious weight

It probably felt like a super-fun game to the kids

This man is living the ideal life

So what? I know a guy who used beer as shampoo.

Wish I had a nickname that cool
