I don’t buy it at all. Is he so poorly organized that he can’t grab something to eat between 9 AM and Noon when his shift starts? OK, then he should grab a meal at the 4 hour mark in his shift - you DO get meal breaks don’t you??? I’ve worked in many restaurants over many years - one of the great perks is getting fed, even it it is just a quick trip into the cooler and grabbing a handfull of something to swallow before exiting. If you can’t figure out how to get fed in a building full of food, then maybe Darwin has selected you for extinction.
