A fifty-one-year-old Springfield, Massachusetts man is suing Golden Corral because he bought the all you can eat buffet but was kicked out before he was finished. Despite the fact that they let him have what he ate for free, Mr. Fleming (Or Mr. Flemmings, the name is uncertain) issuing them for 2 million dollars for false advertisement. Golden Corral offers an all you can eat buffet. Mr. Fleming says that not only was he still hungry but:
“It’s a serious injustice, and I am deeply insulted! With my income, I rarely go to the restaurant, so I try to get as much as I can for my money when I do. This was the worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant. Not only did they kick me out while I was still hungry, but they looked at me like I was disgusting like I was not worthy of eating there! It’s unacceptable, and I demand compensation!”
By now, you are probably wondering what you are missing. Mr. Fleming had stayed at the buffet for over seven hours and consumed 50 to 70 pounds of food.
Normally, I would consider this an open and shut case as he purchased the lunch buffet which lasts only 5 1/2 hours and he was actually eating the supper buffet. However, this being Massachusetts, common sense does not apply. Top Golden Corral executives claim the decision to toss Mr. Fleming was the act of an overzealous manager and they say they offered Fleming a sizable cash offer as compensation. Fleming admits that they made him a very generous offer, but he believes he can get more by going to court.
The case will begin its proceedings on March 7th.
