SHARING’S CARING

R Feach, email

A YOUNG man noticed an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at a fast-food restaurant. He saw they ordered just one meal, and that the old man then divided the hamburger in half, and counted out the chips so they had half each.

Then the old man began eating, while his wife simply watched.

The young man decided to ask them if he could buy them another meal so they didn’t have to split theirs.

“Oh, no,” the old man said. “We’ve been married 50 years, and have always shared everything 50-50.”

The young man asked the wife if she was going to eat. “Not yet,” she replied. “It’s his turn to use the teeth.”
