A South Carolina man took matters into his own hands when he couldn't find an employee at a West Columbia Waffle House in the early morning hours on Thursday.

Alex Bowen said he couldn't sleep that night, so he decided to grab a bite to eat at a nearby Waffle House. When he arrived, however, he says didn't see any employees. 

"I stayed inside waiting, walked outside and looked around, came back in and waited a couple more minutes and got hot on the grill," Bowen wrote on Facebook. Turns out the employee was taking a nap at a table in the restaurant.

Keep cooking Alex!
