A Pox On Their Waffle House!

While I don’t believe I have ever been to a Waffle House, I always wanted to go. Not because of the food or the hospitality, but because there’s a good chance they will be a brawl. Or worse.

Candy Franklin (a male) claimed a Waffle House waitress pointed a gun at him after asking for cheese on his eggs. Apparently the waitress is not a fan of dairy.

Candy Franklin said an argument with a waitress over food sizzled out of control early Wednesday morning.

“It all happened over cheese eggs. At first, they didn’t bring them to me. Then they brought me normal eggs and I said that I ordered eggs with cheese on it. I tipped her and everything. It was all a normal dispute over food. I never in a million years thought it would come to gun violence,” Franklin said.

“I was looking down at my food making sure it was right and that’s when I just saw people running. I look up and she had the gun at me. I didn’t think she would shoot then she cocked it back. So, I was like maybe she is about to do something. Now, it’s time for me to turn into Rambo and get out of there,” Franklin said.

Actually Candy, Rambo would have murdered the waitress with a swizzle stick, while you ran away.

  1. About the only time I venture into a Waffle House is when I’m doing an all night drive and nothing else is open. The food, while usually fast, is nothing outstanding. It’s just fast.

    I limited my visits there years ago when the corporate management came out and said for their staff and customers to stop being armed while on their property. (Open invitation to the bad guys: target rich environment.)

    And a few decades ago, I stopped by one in the Florida panhandle…. they had a 20 minute wait to get in. I went to a local restaurant (June’s Dunes on the Destin Beach, good food, nice staff, short wait) and was very pleased.

    Any more, if I find myself on the road and hungry, I just grab some roadkill from the convenience store where I’m gassing up. Gas the tank & gas the… , well you get the idea.


  2. TXNick – I got a hoagie – sub, hero, whatever – on the way back from the NASCAR race in New Hampshire. It was from a local deli there, so I trusted it. I was nauseous for the entire seven-hour ride home. The kids laughed at me, claiming I should have known better. They weren’t wrong.

  3. I like Waffle House and find that it’s strange that the waitress would react that way as they will go out of their way to make it like you want. I mean they offer Hash Browns like 10 different ways and that’s before to start making combos. I like mine country.
