When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die.

In the story, it says “Why not take these cheeses...Yet I refused, I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer” (pg 818 L198-199).

Odysseus and his men, making a somewhat poor decision, sneak into the Cyclops’s cave. After gazing upon the wonderful meat and items inside the cave, one of Odysseus’s men suggests that they steal all of the Cyclops’s stuff and take it with them to their ship.
