A man from West Columbia, South Carolina did not suppress his cravings, and snuck into the kitchen of a Waffle House restaurant to cook his own food while the guard staff was asleep.
In a Facebook post, Alex Bowen shared photos of himself when he burst into the restaurant's kitchen in the early hours of Wednesday.
Bowen told WIS-TV that he noticed for the first time that nobody was attending him, since he found the staff sleeping. He added that he did not want to bother the guy, so he took the matter into his own hands.

Despite To admit that he had been drinking vodka before his visit, he managed to make himself a "double melted Texas bacon with extra pickles."
"When it was done, I cleaned the grill, picked up the sandwich I had bought and kept rolling," Bowen added.
The next day, Bowen returned to the Waffle House to pay for his meal and check if the employees went back to sleep.
After its publication went viral, Waffle House issued a statement saying that they approached Bowen to apologize.
