As I am waiting a guy and a girl come in. They are drunk. The girl sits next to me on my right at the counter.

"Hey, we just had sex! Wanna smell my fingers?" She asks me.
Before I could say a word, she sticks her hand up to my nose.


Okay, I'll ask....

.....was she cute?

aungen: *suddenly cops arrive and surround the place, and everyone is arrested*


I've got two CSBs for Waffle House and emergency services. Both happened at the same Waffle House too, hanging out with same friend, we both worked night shift so days off we would get together, hit WH, then watch bad movies.
#1- Just eating and talking around 2am, when a fire truck with sirens goes by. Ok. Then another. And another. Now we're all wondering what's going on, as the sirens are stopping somewhere close. Then a chemical response unit comes by, and several new customers are all coming in at once. They're all talking up a storm, and we find out that the hotel across the street just evacuated because they found a meth lab on the 3rd floor. Apparently there was a chemical spill, the two young entrepreneurs fled the room and the security guard noticed.

#2 - A few weeks later, around midnight, and the WH is pretty busy. A young Marine and his date are in the booth next to us, apparently just come from the Ball as they were both very spiffy. A bunch of gang types are in the booth on their other side, and one of them is drunk and talking shiat to the Marine, who is very polite and try to defuse the situation. Drunk asshole keeps up, Marine and his date get up and pay, and asshole follows them in the lot, starts screaming at them, then pulls out a gun and fires it into the air several times. Everybody in the WH hits the ground and 911 gets about a dozen cellphone calls at the same time. Cop shows up a few minutes later, asshole has been holding the couple at gunpoint and continuing to scream nonsense at them, cop just talks to this asshole, tells him to go home, and rides off again.

Going to be kind of hard closing up here. Our doors don't have locks on 'em as we're open 24 hours a day and don't never need 'em locked....


When I was a kid I worked for Denny's. Back then, this was true: Denny's was open 24/7, and there were no locks on the doors.

We did close once for a tropical storm when I was there, and we had to keep people inside the building because 1) it was only a tropical storm, not this kind of monster, and 2) there were no locks on the doors.

When Denny's changed policy and began closing for Christmas day, they had to go around and install locks on all the buildings.

Denny's has a little cachet, I should think.  It's not like I would sully the pristine environs of an IHOP if I were feeling unwell.

/seriously, we don't have any Waffle Houses

They waffle house is simply a stand in for places that don't have greasy diners. But they have corporate resources behind the basic idea concept of 'greasy 24 hour diner' so they can manage to stay open under extreme circumstances. Also, all their employees are felons and scared of going back, so they are more likely to risk going into work.


Those are the nicest felons I've ever met, never had anything but a good experience in the 20+ states I've stopped into a Waffle House in.

It's ok food if you aren't too picky. Some of the restaurants are palpably filthy, though. Considering the fact that basically every time I've gone to Denny's I've gotten half-assed, shiatty food and bad service, I'd probably rather go to WH.


I've been to hundreds of Waffle Houses in my lifetime, nary a hint of trouble or discord brewing. The two, and only two, Denny's I've been to gang fights broke out and there was a massive fruit fly invasion at one of the locations.

I'll stick with Waffle House.

I saw you passed out in a puddle of you own puke in one of the bathrooms on Dog Beach in IB (Imperial Beach, CA).  Not a whole lot of 'cachet' there man.

GardenWeasel: Boojum2k: I've sat out a couple of horrendous thunderstorms in Waffle Houses while traveling. Kinda relaxing, watching rain pound on the glass so hard you can't see the parking at all, thunder shaking the building, and the staff just cheerfully went about their business and I had coffee and food until storm passed.
When they close, all hell is coming through.

I want to see the cast of The Walking Dead come across an open WH during the finale.


That would be the most exciting thing to ever happen on that show.  At this point they might as well.

Last time I was in Colorado was in 1978 when I was 13.  I didn't know about Waffle Houses back then.
