How To Get Banned From Waffle House In 1 Easy Step

If you're out and about craving some late-night comfort food, you've probably had a couple of outings at Waffle House. Known as one of America's most classic 24/7 diners, Waffle House has expanded to over 1,900 locations in the U.S. that serve an average of 127 cups of coffee every second (via AJC). Still though, it hasn't always been a walk-in-the-park for the famed diner chain. Since its grand opening in Atlanta in 1955, several of its locations have been accused of racism (via Quartz) while employees revealed what it's really like to work at Waffle House, sharing the demands of such a high-paced work environment to AP News.

Still though, Waffle House has earned its reputation as a go-to spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any late-night outing. Although a chain restaurant, Waffle House is still a public place, so it adheres to public behavioral expectations and decent manners. No matter how good your intentions are within a restaurant, you can still find ways to rub someone the wrong way. Even celebrities have gotten kicked out of restaurants for bad behavior and rude commentary to staff.

If ­­– for some reason — you're wondering what it would take to get kicked out of a Waffle House in the simplest way, look no further.

Abusing the jukebox

You might think that everyone wants to listen to the same music you do while sitting down in a restaurant, but that's usually not the case. According to Food & Wine, a group of friends were kicked out of their local Waffle House in the middle of their late-night munchy outing because they paid for too much music on the jukebox. The musical artist in question? The Chemical Brothers. Apparently, one of the friends paid for "Block Rockin' Beats" to play 14 times in the diner, causing quite a bit of animosity among staff and fellow customers.

If you're looking for your next social experiment, you can probably try this at any bar or restaurant with a pay-per-song jukebox. A man explained he played "The Boys Are Back In Town" as many times as he could in his local bar before customers flooded the jukebox to pay for other song selections and was asked to leave immediately (via Vice).

No matter how "good" a song is, maybe after three, four, or ten times of it playing over and over, you're going to get kicked out of whatever establishment you're in. If you want to keep Waffle House management happy, consider paying to play a song from the Waffle House record label on the jukebox, like "There are Raisins in My Toast."
