You probably have a spice-head in your life that thinks they’re just too tough for words. If you eat anything and show the mildest discomfort around them, they’ll scoff at you and start bragging about some unpronouncable pepper they ate that didn’t even phase them.

I don’t know much of anything about reddit user Lowghen but I have to assume that they’re a lot like that, the kind of jerk who uses phrases like “it burns so good.”

Anyway, it seems that Lowghen was destined to become internet famous because of his taste for spicy foods. He dropped into a restaurant and asked for pad thai. Not regular pad thai, but spicy pad thai.

Clearly he was emphatic about just how spicy of an experience he was looking for because the person taking his order couldn’t have made it any more clear on the receipt.

can’t imagine how much of an attitude Lowghen must have copped to deserve 17 “Spicy” statements on his receipt but it was enough that the restaurant tagged a malicious note onto the end.


Whoa, that’s intense.

I imagine that he probably offended either the server or the cook with his order so they decided to teach him a lesson.

Other people chimed in in support of Lowghen, offering their own phrases of choice to get their food as spicy as they actually want.

Another person chimed in with their own story of asking for insanely spicy food from a restaurant.

But what about the important question. How spicy did the pad thai turn out to be?

Oh come on!
