Small world? 

From an article in yesterday's Guardian on speed friending:

"I've been coming since the third or fourth meal," said Dave Grossman, a marketing consultant. "We did get a few crazy people the first time," he added. "There was a woman who tried to leave, like, a quarter [about 14p] as a tip."

"What are you saying?" Mr Nissim called across from several seats away.

"I was telling him about that crazy lady," Mr Grossman said.

"Great," Mr Nissim replied. "People are going to think we're all crazy."

Check out The Lunch Club if you think eating alone is boring; judging from the above, the merits of a good book shouldn't be underestimated.
