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 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.
