A Lunch Moment

The oddest thing happened at lunch today.

Three young students, probably aged 13 or 14, came and stood by my table. I figured they were waiting for me or someone else to leave so they could sit.


I looked up and the shortest of the trio smiled awkwardly.

“Hi,” she said. “I know we’re interrupting your lunch … but we’re conducting a survey.”

“About what?”

“About teenagers in society.”

Which seemed a little broad in scope. So I prodded further. “And what exactly about that are you surveying?”

“We are doing a study on whether teenagers today show kindness to others. So we want to know your views and whether you have witnessed any kind acts.”

How about that.
