"I paid $X.XX for the meal. I consider that amount of money to be what I pay for the priviledge of enjoying lunch with you guys... it's obviously not tied to what I then choose to eat from the buffet. Way I see it the $X.XX is a fair price for the experience. If I stuff myself, I'll pay an additional price immediatelly with the stuffed discomfort and again an additional price with the getting fatter"

maybe it's the phrasing of ALL YOU CAN EAT - almost makes it sound like a challenge or a get your money's worth contest. Instead of just buffet - Please choose as much or as little as you care to.

peace & phrasing
