An elderly couple went into a fast food chain. 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. . . .
