    Someone On Twitter Said It's "Tacky" To Eat Free Bread Immediately At Restaurants, And The Responses Have Me In Tears

    I want bread to ooze out of my pores by the time I'm done.

    Bread lovers — brace yourselves, because what I'm about to say could be upsetting.

    Recently, @sIicksista asked Twitter to settle a debate for her: whether or not it's tacky to eat the free bread at a restaurant immediately when they set it in front of you.

    had this argument in a gc but i wanna know the truth. isn’t it very tacky for somebody to eat the free bread as soon as you get it?

    She then further expounded upon her point, saying she believes it's best to wait five minutes before reaching for the bread.

    you should wait five minutes before reaching for the bread. if you that hungry you should’ve had a pregame meal.

    First of all, the answer is overwhelmingly, undeniably, and irrevocably no.

    Wherefore would the bread be placed in front of a hungry human if not for the sole purpose of being eaten?

    Second, wait five minutes?? It's only HOT for five minutes.

    Get it while it's good, fam.

    Like, this is the energy I'm trying to bring to every establishment that offers free bread.

    I see no lies.

    And it seems that 297,333 people (so far) agree with me. The votes currently stand at 97.3% saying "no," it's not tacky, and only 2.7% saying "yes."

    But that's not the best part. People are going OFF in their responses.

    @ABRbeanz @sIicksista She’s gonna be staring at an empty bread basket if she’s waiting five minutes.

    @sIicksista Girl what? Life is NEVER this serious to wait to eat some fucking bread.

    @sIicksista Ain’t anything on the planet that 97% of people agree with. You could ask if the Pope is a lizard and get 4% yes.

    @J_Nova_Kane @sIicksista like????? am i supposed to go eat before i go… eat?

    But I think the tweet that really spoke to my soul is this one...

    @sIicksista Sick to my stomach that any person can be this stupid. I want my waiter to be in shambles over how much bread I am consuming. They should be terrified to ask the kitchen for more bread. Tensions between the staff should reach a boiling point as I fill up on free bread.

    (Minus the stupid part, of course.)

    And yeah, maybe I am tacky...but I'm stuffed and happy! So, what do y'all think about this debate? Let us know in the comments below!

    And please don't hate on @sistaslick, who created this poll!! There's literally no need to attack her.
