They Thought This Poor Couple Had To Share Food Because They Were Broke. But The Reality Is Hilarious

The old man placed an order for one hamburger , French fries and a drink.

He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half , placing one half in front of his wife.

He then carefully counted out the French fries , dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink , his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger , the people around them were looking over and whispering.

Obviously they were thinking , 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.'

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything..

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again , the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No , thank you , we are used to sharing everything.'

Finally , as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin , the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?'

She answered

Me:"Umm, no. Why?"

Regular: "Oh, they just came in sat down like they wanted no one to see them and took your newspaper."

Me: "Well I can't ask them to leave unless they are bothering you. Do you want me to ask them for the newspaper? I can since they aren't paying cust-"

Regular: "Oh no, I was just wondering if homeless people came in here often."

(I look back to the corner again and I can see their faces now.)
