Ban the buffet.

While waiting for a vegetable roll to be prepared for me in a grocery store, I looked over at the buffet and thought, "The food is so vulnerable." On cue, a man walked up to the salad bar. He stopped in front of the imitation crabmeat. He looked left. He looked right. Thinking the coast was clear, he shoved his bare hand into the crab dish, grabbed three pieces and popped them into his mouth. Then he walked away. The dual moral of this story? One. When stealing food from a buffet remember to also check behind you. Two. Should be obvious.

  1. There are so many false securities that they use to trick people into using the buffet. First is the "sneeze guard" which is basically useless. Second are the tongs which people use to grab the food. Makes sense until the handle ends up in the food. When that happens it is as if hundreds of people just dropped their hands on that food.
