Then it Eventually Hit Me, It Was the Smell

Roughly 6-7 years ago, I was waiting tables at restaurant when the fattest person I’ve ever seen walked in. She was seated in a section that I wasn’t waiting so other than the initial mild curiosity, I ignored her.

25 minutes or so later, I heard someone gagging. Great, I thought, someone got sick on our food. The sections were divided for smoking so I couldn’t really see what was going on. A few minutes later, I heard another person making dry heaving/gagging sounds.

I started to get a bit worried at this point. The managers rushed out but I just continued on doing my thing. (waiting tables at night is crazy busy, short of a nuclear war, you just keep on working)

Then it eventually hit me, I wanted to gag as well. It was the smell. It turned out that the incredibly obese woman had shit herself and just sat in it.

Long story short, many customers were refunded money (the ones that stuck around). We propped all the doors open in the building and sat outside for a good hour before going back in and closing up shop. (It was around closing time)…

I’ll never forget that night.


  1. I feel sorry for the poor woman. She obviously had a serious problem.

  2. Shadow Girl says:

    Did she leave on her own, or did someone have to ask her to leave?

  3. Heather says:

    How do you know she shat herself? If anyone did shit themselves, how do you know who it was? Just curious, not trying to give you a hard time. Maybe there is just more to the story this anecdote is missing. :)
