Response 3: All you can stomach

I cannot believe I am witness to this. I’m not the only person in the room but I am the only one watching. I guess in this sort of environment I shouldn’t be surprised to see such a sight. Should I be impressed? Appalled maybe. He looks happy though. Why wouldn’t he be? He has free reign here. No one will be stopping him soon.

The staff looks worried now. I’m not sympathising though. They must have known they’d one day encounter such an animal. It comes with the territory. He’s a product of this industry. Heck, he’s a product of society. Got to feel for him. He’s probably quenching some hidden pain. Wait, I’m not condoning this. He’s a fat mess eating plate after plate at an all you can eat buffet.

Feeling quite conflicted. Should I feel pity or disgust for this bottomless pit in front of me?
