tcomplain. A third man sipped a cup of coffee and leaned back in his seat. Hemurmured his assent. What sort of wonderful things have you done this week?asked one of the men. The others all spoke at once before pausing and tradinghostile glances. One spoke louder than the others. I bought food for a homelessman, he said. One of the gentlemen patted him on the back before adding, I did thattoo. And donated to a charity.The waitress came by and refilled the coffees.
