Big Tasty?

It seems that not a week goes by with out some random event that would only ever happen in Russia. This week’s event happened while I was sat with two of my friends in a MacDonalds. While we were eating a random old man came over and asked if he could put his coat in the spare space next to me, so I agreed then was a little surprised when he walked off to the toilet. A few minutes later he reappeared from the toilet, walked straight past his coat and sat at another table where he then started to abuse the people sat there and asking them madly where his coat was. We then expected him to see the error of his ways and come over, but no he then walked around the whole restaurant accusing various different people of stealing his coat even people standing trying to order food.

After seeing all of this despite the fact that we had finished our food we decided to stay and see how this would end and also to make sure that someone didn’t really steal this guys coat while he was wandering the restaurant. We then had three members of staff appear at our table and start asking us questions like ‘Is that young man your friend?’ to which we were like ‘What young man? (dawning moment) Erm no, we have no clue who he is.’ My friends and I are still not entirely sure what the staff then asked us but we tried very badly to explain that this guy had just appeared and dumped his coat and we had no idea who he was or what he wanted. One of the staff then just went ‘Big tasty?’ to which we were sort of like ‘Erm……No……what?’

They then left us alone and the next this we saw was this guy starting to fill in something in a book that the staff had given him. Still not sure if this guy thought we had stolen his coat, his food or what. We were just glad that we didn’t get attacked or arrested and simply sat wondering what exactly was going on but decided to put it down to just one of those things that just happen in Russia.
