Buffet Workers Share Their Absolute Worst Horror Stories

By

If you need more evidence that you should never, ever, ever, ever eat at an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the list for you. Someone asked the buffet workers of Reddit to share the most horrifying things they've seen on the job, and reader, you have no idea just how gross buffets are. I guarantee it. I already thought buffets were nasty, and several of these shocked me and shook me to my core. You've been warned.

For some, the all-you-can-eat buffet is the wild wild west of restaurants. It's lawless land. People think they can do whatever they want, and they do. When which_spartacus worked as a busboy at a country buffet in South Carolina, one day he went to clean a table where there had been a group of 12 seated. They left the place a mess, but this was more than that. When these people were done with their plates, they'd scrape their garbage onto the floor and go get more food. "Next to each chair, there was a six-inch to 18-inch pile of chicken bones, crab legs, mashed potatoes..." What the actual heck.
