Something Sinister In The Kitchen

February 19, 2010

in Odds & Ends Stories

My mother and my aunt and uncle and I once went to a lovely looking restaurant while holidaying in Portugal. It was scalding hot so we ate in the enclosed area outside. A window was open that apparently was part of the kitchen. But no sooner had we sat down and ordered our food than we heard a terrible retching noise coming from the kitchen. We all stopped and the retching continued. It sounded like someone was throwing up or coughing really bad but in a monstrous tone. It was really loud and quite disgusting as we tried to eat our meals. The retching seemed to be turning to roaring as if some strange demonic creature was in there. We looked down at our half eaten food and were suddenly wary about eating it. But so as not to insult the waiting staff, we ate it all and left with the thing still roaring and retching in the kitchen.

Let's see now, you're paying for the food, but you hear all that commotion, and are afraid of insulting the wait staff. You didn't even ask what was going on? That restaurant may have been strange, but you are even stranger.

You know Jack from the comments you have left on other stories it makes me think that you are a truly horrible person. You seem to take delight in tormenting and humiliating others and quite frankly I and I'm sure many others have had enough. You are nothing but a pathetic bully trying to get attention. So here is some advise, shut up, go away and don't come back!

Wow! My remarks have gotten you that riled up? I think you perhaps have an anger management problem. Seek help.

I just can't imagine anyone sitting through what the writer described, and reacting the way they did. Either the story isn't true, or those people need help. They surly shouldn't be allowed out alone, for their own safety.

Also scalding is for hot liquid

Maybe it was a piece of equipment, the radio or tv. Without inquiring you cannot know what caused the noise, especially if it lasted that long without stopping, makes it hard to believe it would be someone coughing or throwing up.
