A Cry for Help: Man Gets Table for One at Golden Corral
OXNARD, CA — Concerns for a man’s well-being were raised at a local Golden Corral after Brett Hall, 48, arrived at the all-you-can-eat establishment and ordered a table for one. “I thought he was kidding at first,” said hostess Abigail White, “in fact, I audibly laughed. But when I saw the emptiness behind his eyes, a deep and profound sadness washed over me.”
“I knew things were bad when Carrol left, but, Jesus, I . . . I had no idea,” said longtime friend Jordan Anderson, who arrived on the scene following a call from management that Hall was openly weeping into his mashed potatoes.
Fathers did all they could at nearby tables to shield their children from the sight of Hall as he passed by with multiple plates piled high with carving station bone-in turkey, baked fish, dumplings, and pizza atop mounds of base-layer homestyle stuffing, fried ravioli, and refried beans. “My daughter is five,” said Craig Adams, who sat in the booth opposite Hall, “that’s too early to start therapy.”
At the printing of this newsletter, Hall was seen visibly drunk, in boxer shorts and a bathrobe, entering a Chuck-E-Cheese and submerging himself into the ball pit.
