BROOKLYN, NY—Employees at the Jade Kitchen 2 restaurant reportedly witnessed 28-year-old Dean Rumergant at his worst Monday, when the unbathed and visibly exhausted freelance designer arrived at the Chinese takeout establishment at 10 a.m. and paid for his order of beef chow mein by placing seven crumpled dollar bills and half a cigarette on the counter. "He never looks too good when he comes in here," said cashier Lin Zhou, who added that she initially thought Rumergant was a patient from the nearby methadone clinic. "I think he had a piece of a straw wrapper stuck in his hair this time. He stinks really bad." According to the employees, Rumergant eventually shuffled out of the restaurant, started hacking uncontrollably, and spilled his food all over the sidewalk.
