    He was just about the most famous country DJ in the country for a couple decades. He moved back to his home town a few years ago.

    They always insist I go first so the line starts after me.

    That is after we had the "INCIDENT":psycho:

    Whenever they yell, "It's ready!", I just wait a half-hour and breeze right through.

    I was just worried that maybe if they leaned back someone would throw their drink all over them for being rude.

    To the OP. Have you ever thought about "spilling" drinks on someone who is fixing their plate too slow?

    (of course "fixing a plate" is a new term to me)

    Nope, I'm no Rhubarb, and I never claimed I was lije him or even knew him.
    I just happen to be in the same general area with some well known west Georgia natives.

    I actually am a huge fan of The Kimmer and I'm super glad that he's back on the air. He's a proponent of open carry too.

    One thing I have done is stop at a burger joint before going to one of these dinners so I am not starving waiting in line or for late arrivals. A little burger helps stave off hunger pangs.

    Have any of you been suck behind "chicken turners" at a buffet? They get to the chicken and use the tongs to give about ten pieces of chicken a very thorough physical exam before selecting the absolute perfect one or two that have earned the honor of being put on their plate.

    I normally wait a bit before I stand in line at a party buffet. At the local parties I attend most people are considerate especially for the seniors and young children. Just got to be patient or suck some beers/drinks down before eating...

    That last sentence is absolutely perfect and sums up the folks who believe that the world stops and starts at their command, and have no problem making the rest of us wait while they make the entire world their comfy little perfect oyster.

    Let me share with you the story of the cookie flipper. I volunteer as head staff at a camp for special needs kids we host the camp at an awesome facility however that facility does employ people from around the world.
    One particular night when the staff was in the dining hall after hours having our get together a member of their kitchen staff came out to our buffet line where we had an assortment of snacks including fresh baked homemade chocolate chip cookies.

    She proceeded to walk up to the cookies and daintily using her thumb and index finger of her right hand pick up each cookie to flip over and inspect the bottom of the cookie possibly for proper chip content one of our female staffers saw her do this and asked her to stop flipping the cookies the cookie flipper stop said something I'm sure was hateful in romanian and stormed out
