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

Excellent observation! I bet that does have a huge impact on folks' behaviour at a buffet!


I was on a business trip back in December with a guy from my shop and many other people. There was a Mexican resturant right across from our hotel and they had an all you can eat lunch buffet.
A group of us went one day and after a couple of cheese enchiladas and some rice, I was full, everyone else made maybe 2 trips through the line. No one was overly glutonous.
The guy I work with, after 3 plates, said it was time to rest, let everything settle and then he'd go back up, because he was "by God" going to get his moneys worth.
Just so you know, this buffet was only $4.95.
We left him there and went back to class.
