Late-night Waffle House customer finds no one to help, handles the cooking himself

While an employee slept, SC man made himself at home at Waffle House

When a SC man got hit with a strong Waffle House craving at 3 a.m. on Thursday, he wasn't going to let anything stop him - including an employee who he says was asleep when he got there. He said he waited at the counter for 10 minutes before he walked outside to check for employees.

After waiting for 10 minutes to be helped, Bowen made a decision to take his late-night snack into his own hands.

He said he returned later to pay for the sandwich.

The hilarious photos have gone viral, with the original post being shared more than 1,600 times.

He posted his adventure on his Facebook page, complete with pictures.

"That's when I got hot on the grill with a Texas bacon cheesesteak melt", said Bowen.

Upon hearing the story, a Waffle House district manager reached out to Bowen, thanked him for pointing out a flaw in their business, and offered him a position as a Waffle House secret shopper, ABC reports. "I wouldn't normally have done that". He also said that after speaking with Bowen they found out his actions pointed out greater issues that they will address in the future.

In a statement obtained by multiple news outlets, however, the chain noted that "for safety reasons", customers should never "have to go behind the counter". "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".

Any good southerner will tell you the best part about Waffle House is that you can grab breakfast at any hour of the day or night.
