For those readers who have yet to experience the glory of a little southern restaurant called The Waffle House, I’ll try my best to explain.
If you were to take one of those old-timey diners from a movie, where the lead actor stops in for a cup of joe and meets the lead actress at the counter, but then make it 24 hours and space them exactly 1 mile apart throughout the entirety of the southern US, you’d have The Waffle House.
It is both the quintessential hangover cure for partying southerners, and the Sunday after church meal for this not suffering in the same way.
We in the south love Waffle House, and, as evidenced by one story from Tennessee, will do just about anything to get our fix.
Sally Selby, 45, was arrested and charged with theft Friday after police pulled her over on the highway in Crossville for taking the electric scooter on a joy ride, WTVF reported. Selby was spotted on surveillance video entering a Walmart about 4:15 a.m., getting into the scooter and riding it around the store as she shopped.
She then drove the scooter out of the store about half an hour later, appeared to do a test run around the parking lot before riding it on Highway 127, WKRN reported.
Then, around 5am, Selby was apprehended by police in the slow lane of the highway.
When asked what she was doing, Selby simply stated that she was headed to The Waffle House for a cup of coffee.
That’s how much we love Waffle House.
