TAMPA — Dude …

Remember Friday night, when you went across the street to the Pita Pit after all-you-can-drink happy hour at MacDinton's?

You ordered food. Then, you grabbed a chair. You dragged it right out the door — across Howard Avenue! Employees canvassed SoHo when they realized what you did, but the chair was nowhere to be found.

Dude. Where'd you go? Who are you? And, more importantly, why would you want that chair? It's got a metal frame and wood seat. Your beanbag chairs have got to be more comfortable.

Now the Pita Pit is down to only nine chairs. "They're not, like, cheap chairs," owner Andrew Turek, 26, says. "We have to get them … shipped from Idaho."

Idaho, dude.

The pita folks saw you on their security video. They put it on YouTube. They don't know your name but say you're a regular.

I'm the idiot, says a note on the video, pointing to you. (Nice sideburns, by the way.)

I only have 2 friends and 1 of them should turn me in. (It's offering a free pita to anyone who does.) Call (813) 254-PITA (7482).

I'm not allowed in Pita Pit anymore :(

Unless you bring the chair back, Turek says.

Then, it's all good.
