New Delhi: 26 yrs old Ranjit is highly confused about his dinner tonight at a famous restaurant in Delhi.

Ranjit is planning on going for the buffet at a posh restaurant as a special treat for himself but isn’t sure about the buffet etiquette to be followed.

Since the prices at the restaurant are very high, Ranjit wants to make sure he eats enough to make it worth the amount he will spend, but is also worried about the judging looks from fellow diners if he makes one trip too many to the buffet table to refill his plate.

Speaking to Faking News, Ranjit said, “Only time I have eaten at a buffet is during a wedding and there it isn’t a problem because in an average Indian wedding, there are about 10,000 people so nobody has the time to check how many times you are going to fill your plate. Only judgment there is from the ice cream guy who sometimes tells me that even the kids aren’t returning as many times as me. However, things will be different in this restaurant, there will be a handful of people and these bastards place the buffet table a little far away from the seating area so that everyone notices how many times you are walking back and forth.”

“Now this is a very expensive buffet so I can’t just have 2 spoons of rice and some chicken curry, I need to make sure I eat every dish on offer and at the same time, I don’t want to look like a bhukkad who is just eating like he has never seen food before so it is a dilemma. I need to find the fine balance between bhukkad and waste of money”, Ranjit added.

When we asked why he is going for a buffet if it is so confusing, Ranjit replied, “Till date I have only eaten free buffets at weddings I wasn’t invited to in the first place. At least once I want to enjoy a paid buffet.”
