For many Nigerians, their experiences at buffets rank highest as one of their most embarrassing moments.
From simple things like being overly shy because you now have to exercise your alimentary canal in front of everyone, to really serious buffet malfunctions like when a host tells you to return one of the pieces of meat on your plate, the struggle at buffets can be real.
Because we genuinely care about, we rounded up 5 quick things you can do at a buffet so people will feel you. Or do you want to de-rep yourself?
1. Walk Around and Have a Good Look Of All The Foods On Offer
Any first-class student knows it is important to read all the questions before diving in to answer three out of four questions. Note that I said any, I wasn’t one.
Well, that’s the exact same way you should treat the foods on offer at a buffet. Walk around and have a good view of everything on offer. This way, you won’t order Chinese rice only to realise the basmati rice is more inviting.
2. Don’t Reach Around Someone Else
Repeat after me – “CHILL”.
Yes, chill. Don’t act like a protestdlum looting hoarded indomien in Jos.
It’ll get to your turn, I’m sure. Just wait the queue, patiently.
3. When It Does Get To Your Turn To Serve Yourself, Move Sleek
Remember that time you took a cursory look of all the foods on display, well this is the time to act on the information you’ve gathered. Don’t hover around the buffet table doing mini-mini-mani-mo.
Move fast, move sleek. Serve yourself and keep it moving.
4. Don’t Touch Any Food On The Serving Plate With Your Hand
No, don’t. That’s plain unhygienic, and it doesn’t do well, health wise, for everyone else. So, “let’s not atlact curses to ourself”.
Use the serving spoons provided to serve yourself, strictly.
5. Turn Away From the Serving Table When You Need To Sneeze
It needs not be said really. If you have reason to cough or sneeze, turn away from the serving table so that germs don’t spread to the meals.
That way, everybody is safe.
