I took DS to Pizza Hut today for a treat. We both ordered the all you can eat buffet. DS' plate consisted of 1 slice of pizza, 5 slices of cucumber, 3 cherry tomatoes, croutons, a bread stick, potato salad and some bacon bits. I had 2 platefuls of filled of salad (lettuce, onion, beetroot, potato salad, peppers, cucumber, sweetcorn, peppers etc) and also had 4 slices of pizza altogether (but didn't eat it all).

However, I witnessed one very large lady fill her plate with a slice of every pizza available (6 pizzas), topped with pasta. She did this twice while we were there. Plus, as soon as new pizzas arrived people swamped the table and took way more than a human with a normal sized stomach could eat!

Is this normal practise in Pizza Hut?! Or do I just live in the wild??

its all you can eat

the point is to eat all you an eat is it not?

ergo yabu

would it be ok for a skinny person to eat the same

and if so would you refer to that person as ' one skinny person went up twice?'

YABVVVU its called an all you can eat buffet. Its not their fault you can't eat as much as them. YOu are paying good money for it, surely you want your monies worth smile

I don't go to buffets much, and try to eat a sensible balanced diet, but when I do go to a buffet I like to enjoy myself and eat as much as I can. In fact I starve myself all day so i can do so grin

Unentitled Greed 101.

I still resent my experience at Pizza Hut 35 years ago. DS was 4, he and I went. Every time pizzas were put out, 3 teenage boys would run up and grab all the pizza. Such greed!

what you really want to say is well is it any wonder she is fat if she eats like this go on admit it you would not have mentioned her size if she were not big would you

so what, she paid you paid its all that you eat buffet some scoff others don't. bit like when you go to an all inclusive hotel

You are being unreasonable to think of Pizza Hut as a treat!

I have been before but could not eat that much as didn't like it.

A while back DH and I were in Pizza Hut.

A group of lads -4 of them- about 12-15 yo raided the pizza buffet, taking about 6 slices each and emptying what was there.

Then they deliberately took one bite of of each slice and left the rest.
The manager was called, but there was nothing he could do.Just lectured them on the waste and their greed.

So people eating what they can is one then.
Deliberate, crass, stupid waste is another.
And yes, the little c**ts laughed.angry

35 years Hansie??? thats a frigging long time to harbour resentment grin

FreudianSlipper Wed 17-Aug-11 00:44:17

was Pizza Hut around 35 years ago

i thought i was really sophisticated when i went in the 80's with my friends (i was a teenager then)

GypsyMoth Wed 17-Aug-11 00:46:22

I don't remember it from teens

squeakytoy Wed 17-Aug-11 00:47:30

I dont think it was.. there were very few pizza places back then. My mum used to take me to PizzaLand in Bolton. We would have a platter, which was half a small cheese and tomato pizza, with a jacket potato, and coleslaw.. and very nice it was too! It is still one of my favourite meals at home.

ApocalypseCheeseToastie Wed 17-Aug-11 00:47:52

Well I think 4 slices is excessive, and I'm fat !!!

MightyQuim Wed 17-Aug-11 00:51:16

YABU. It's all you can eat and she can obviously eat a lot. DH would be the same. I'm always quite disappointed at how little I manage to eat at all you can eat buffets despite good intentions of getting my moneys worth and semi-fasting before I go.

organicgardener Wed 17-Aug-11 00:52:15

I talk a good game when I hit an all you can eat place.

Starve myself and gee myself up for the scoffathon.

But I fizzle out after one plate every time.

<Imagines behemoth of a lady shovelling pizza into craggy mouth parts> shock

squeakytoy Wed 17-Aug-11 00:52:50

I went with a mate once, and she ate 15 slices of pizza... no salad..

I have to admit I was a bit shock ... and more so when a week or so later she a)told me she had a wheat allergy and b) blamed it on her inability to lose the 10+ extra stones she was carrying grin

squeakytoy Wed 17-Aug-11 00:54:04

The best buffet I have been to in the UK has to be Cosmo in Croydon.. that is just amazing!!!

FreudianSlipper Wed 17-Aug-11 00:55:57

maybe i am younger that you Sara or was more sophisticated as a teenager grin

i remember PizzaLand. i find that strange now pizza with jacket potato but it was nice at the time

Pizza Express was around when I was little, remember going when i was quite young

organicgardener Wed 17-Aug-11 00:56:55

Indian all you can eats are nicer than Chinese all you can eats.

The Chinese all you can eats i've been too have icky stuff next to good stuff so I can't touch the good stuff in case it has icky stuff on it hmm

GypsyMoth Wed 17-Aug-11 00:58:15

Pizza was so sophisticated back then!

squeakytoy Wed 17-Aug-11 00:58:18

I am 42 and there wasnt even a McDonalds when I was a kid in our nearest big town.. the first real fast food I had was KFC when I was about 10.. and it gave me food poisoning.. I still cant stand the smell of those lemon hand wipes now... oddly enough I can happily eat the chicken still!!!

Didnt have a kebab until I was about 20 either...

The closest thing I got to fast food as a kid was a bag of hot new potatoes or a black pudding as I walked round Bury Market with my mum!
