Have you ever had the feeling that any good deed you try is counteracted by a good swift kick in the pants? I may be exaggerating here, but not by much.
I recently grabbed a quick lunch at a local hamburger restaurant. I don't like eating at fast food restaurants but, occasionally, I don't have much choice. Then, once in the restaurant the menu doesn't give me much choice, either.
I ordered my lunch and settled at a corner table. About halfway through my lunch an older couple took the table next to me. Being a "people watcher,' which is a fancy way of saying, "I'm nosy," I watched this couple out of the corner of my eye.
