Last week I went to the Ikea’s Crawfish Party in Sacramento. I was really excited, and had dreams of eating mountains upon mountains of crawfish. But sadly Ikea was ill-prepared for the onslaught of us Vietnamese people and our fishsauce.
The place was filled with Vietnamese people, and every one of them used these Ikea food cart to load trays full of crawfish. Now, there is nothing wrong with them wanting crawfish, because it was all you can eat, but its classless and shameless when there is a huge ass line behind them and they just stood there piling their cart like nothing.
I was one of the first few people in line, so I was able to get myself two plates of crawfish. But by the time I was back in line for a second serving, these shameless people had already taken all of the 50 boxes of crawfish Ikea had for the event.
A lot of people ended up not getting any crawfish that day. It was truly a sad moment in history.
Ikea did offer to let us in to the regular food line and get whatever food we wanted. That was alright, but a swedish meatball just does not compare to a crawfish.
Anyways, my point is, I find it distasteful for my people to be so rude and classless. Just because its an all you can eat, does not mean you have to stand there and load up your cart like you are back in Vietnam. I would understand it more if it was a bunch of old Vietnamese people doing this, because people like my parents lived through starvation and war, but these young Vietnamese people should know better.
I love my crawfish and all, but you’ll never see me piling a cart full of crawfish while others are waiting in line behind me.
Maybe I am just bitter they took all my crawfish… :(
