One user recalled, “His family ate their dinner from pie plates, which were all HUGE, and he was always trying to get me to eat more. If I asked for a small Sonic shake, he’d order me a super-sized one, like I didn’t even know they came that big, and be offended if I didn’t finish it in a single sitting. I was like, nope, this is not going anywhere I want to be.”

A Hissing Sound
