The staff only noticed Shen’s continuous presence after three days had passed. “We work in shifts here and the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, so we get a lot of people coming through,” said worker Jiang Li Lung. “At first no one really noticed her. But after a few days, I began thinking she looked really familiar. Then I realised we had been serving her for the past three days and that she hadn’t really left.”
Jiang and the rest of the staff were concerned about the girl, and asked her if she was okay. Shen replied that she just wanted some time to think and then asked for another box of chicken wings with extra fries. The staff decided that she wasn’t doing anyone any harm, so they let her stay. “She was after all a paying customer, even if a bit of an odd one,” Jiang explained.
A week, without a shower? Must have stank! 🙂
