Man cooks own meal at restaurant while staff was asleep

"I expected I would share it on Facebook, a couple of my friends would see it, like it, comment on it and it would pass into history as most things I have done have", said Bowen.

"I walked back outside to my vehicle to look for employees", Bowen said.

He gobbled down the meal and then left the West Columbia Waffle House.

It turned out there was at least one person there, an employee he said was asleep in a corner booth that he hadn't noticed - and who hadn't noticed him.

Bowen said he went back to check the establishment at another time and to find out if there were any more sleepy workers.

The photos in this post show Bowen in the cooking areas and a stacked sandwich.

He walked to the kitchen and snapped selfies as he cooked himself a giant Texas bacon cheesesteak melt at 3 a.m.

"When I was done I cleaned the grill, collected my ill-gotten sandwich and rolled on out", Bowen added. "I wouldn't normally have done that". A Waffle House district manager reached out to Bowen and asked him to become a Waffle House secret shopper.

He said one of the employees says the store isn't very happy with his exploits. Naturally, he took the rare opportunity to do what every other Waffle House customer would have done.

As for the worker, a spokesperson said they were suspended for a week. Rather they should get a quality experience delivered by friendly associates.

Though the Waffle House employee was disciplined, everything is good between the restaurant and Bowen.In statement, Waffle House tells ABC Columbia: "We're glad Alex was able to enjoy his Texas bacon cheesesteak".

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.
