    ON POINT

    This past week I was the recipient of a very kind courtesy. I had breakfast at a local restaurant and was sitting with a bunch of retired guys and some farmers. We solved the world’s problems and complained about the local and national political scene. A typical male right of passage with the first liar standing no chance. I went to leave and pay my bill. The waitress told me that my ticket had been covered. I immediately thought of the group I was with and wondered who had bought my breakfast. The group I was with are decent guys, but not normally inclined to pick up another’s tab. I asked the waitress who paid my bill. She said a married couple that was sitting near the door had covered my tab.
