Hubby and I have been passing like two ships in the night for weeks now. We're also basically playing E tag, stopping at prearranged locations to switch parental duties since we are never together as a family. So Monday we scheduled a lunch date, just the two of us.
Normally when we go out on a date, we get the heck out of CountryTime because everywhere we go we run into church members. Alas, Monday we did not have that much time and had to go to a lovely downtown location. We were sat at a table very near the entrance and ordered an appetizer of homemade guacamole and chips. Our appetizer arrived and there we were, sitting and talking and snacking when of course, a church member walked in to the restaurant.
She came over to our table to chat for a moment and saw our chips. Then, without warning, she reached into the chip bowl and grabbed a chip and helped herself. I sat there stunned. I barely know this woman, but Hubby knows her fairly well as her husband just recently died. If one of my friends walked up to me in a restaurant and plucked food off my table, I would probably think nothing of it. But this woman was a stranger to me and it just felt, well, rude. Maybe I am just being overly sensitive since I am so sick of the people here, but....
I just keep thinking of the Friend's episode where Joey keeps yelling "Joey doesn't share food!"
