I work at a local soup kitchen, so over the course of the past few years, I’ve accumulated quite a lot of odd stories I can tell.
We serve such a nice, hearty, wholesome lunch for anyone who arrives there daily, except Sunday, between 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. We’re forced to deal with all kinds of characters. Some are very persnickety eaters. Naturally, since everyone is prone toward boredom and aggravation, many complain if we serve the same meal more than once over the course of a week. Some don’t care what we have available. They’d be thrilled to pig out on Tony the TIGER’s favorite cereal daily.
Like anyone, they have quite a wide range of interests. Their conversations are about normal things like sports and current events. The often talk about movies too. Nicole, one of our employees, is from England, so she refers to movies as CINEMA. One of the catches to having to deal with these characters is that they don’t always consider HONESTY unavoidably mandatory. They’re not above lying.
