The man who uploaded the video said he did the same thing for over 2.5 hours.

“His own wife couldn’t even get him to turn back around to face the bar. Watched us the whole time.”

While most chimed in with their own story, there were still some willing to give the man the benefit of the doubt that perhaps the man’s intentions weren’t negative or sinister.

One person however shut down that line of thought by saying, “I’m sorry, but no. It’s rude to stare while sometimes [sic] eating… idc how much admiration you’re in.”
