Everyone is an expert, whether you need advice or not, some feel the obligation to share. One of the first days when I sat down to eat, an older gentleman introduced himself to me as "Thomas". "Is that what you ordered?" He asked looking at my tray. I laughed and said " Not even close."
"Figured as much. They'll bring you a menu and you can choose your meals for the following day. And a little advice, the eggs are pretty good for breakfast, the string beans are OK but the macaroni and is quite tasty."
I thanked him for his advice. While I tried to finish my meal, a lady at the end of the table got my attention. " I don't like the food", she said.
A med tech walked over to her and said, "Miss Lydia, if you don't like, then don't eat it."
"I want to go away," replied Miss Lydia.
"Where do you want to go?"
"Far away". The med tech started to assist her getting up.
"Why are you touching me!"
"Oh said you wanted to leave."
"But I'm not through with my meal."
"I thought you didn't like the food?"
"Who said that?"
And out of no where Thomas added, "Oh yeah the pot roast is not worth a damn."
