Ever feel guilty about eating too much at a buffet or all-you-can-eat?

...and I don't meant just regarding the waistline. I was at a mom-and-pop Asian buffet place, which included sushi (16 different rolls!), for just seven dollars for lunch. But there, and at other buffet places here in economically down Charleston, SC, I discover that owners/workers seem to be monitoring what you eat, always looking at your plate, and they don't remove used plates so you see them stacking up in front of you like a reminder of how much you have taken. I think they try to guilt you into not eating as much as you want. I could *completely* go to town on tasty all-you-can-eat sushi for seven dollars (not to mention the other food they have), going back numerous times to eat a very large amount...but I would feel guilty, and probably get nasty looks from the workers...can they even ask you to leave because you are eating too much? Or should I not care and just eat as much as I want, no matter how large it may become?
