What’s more stuffed than your stomach after a Thanksgiving meal? The Caf during Cafsgiving – and there’s a reason for it. Bucknell Dining Services puts together an entire Thanksgiving feast, giving us the opportunity to celebrate the best holiday of the year (you know it’s true) not once but twice, and early.
With the excitement of the food and the large amount of people, personalities are bound to shine through. Here are 12 types of people you’ll encounter at Cafsgiving this Thursday, November 12 (yay, so soon):
1. The Early Birds
Those who crowd in the LC Lobby 30+ minutes before the Caf even opens. (Did Black Friday start early this year? … and at Bucknell?)
2. The Picky Eater
The stack of bread on their plate is a dead give-away.
3. The Anxious
Hyperventilating due to the crowd of people.
4. The Avoider
I guess you won’t actually encounter them because they’ll be eating at the Bison or the Commons.
5. The Table Reserver
You know who you are.
6. The Line Cutter
Once again, you know who you are.
7. The Unaware
No one reading this article. Somehow these people managed to not hear about this wonderful tradition.
8. “That Person”
The one who reminds you that it’s not actually Thanksgiving.
9. The Begger
“Dear first-year friends, please swipe me into the Caf” – desperate upperclassman.
10. The person who goes back for seconds, and thirds, and…
Walking over to get more food counts as exercise, right?
11. The Judger… who targets the person who goes back for seconds…
Obnoxiously glares at others’ seven plates of food.
12. And (of course) The ~Thankful~
Thankful for freshly carved meat, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin bread, pie, stuffing. **Reminder: This is what the holiday is all about** (Zac Efron knows)
