Mary Celeste, Where Are You?

     This incident is enough to make anyone wonder:

     LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) — A man in Virginia had a not-so-average trip to Waffle House recently. He went there to grab a bite to eat, but when he went inside there was no one to be found.
     William Davis woke up hungry and drove from Brookneal to the Waffle House in Lynchburg around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.
     When he got there, he saw something he never expected: an empty restaurant.
     “All kinds of things go through your mind when you see stuff like that, you know, out of the ordinary,” Davis said.
     Davis was not expecting to find a scene like this. In the Facebook live he posted you can see dishes out on tables and signs that people had been there, like hot water running, but not a single worker.

     Beware, munched-out late-night eaters! That waffle you crave might not be available on easy terms. But perhaps we should spare a thought for the staff. When contacted, the manager said there were two staff assigned to that shift. Did they ever report in? Will there be a follow-up story, perhaps an investigation? Who is kidnapping the great short-order cooks of Virginia? Film at eleven!

    The “Mary Celeste”! I can hear Leonard Nimoy’s voice as we turn into “In search of”. Great post!
