The Pending Coffee
We were in a small coffee shop
'Two customers arrive.
"5 coffees. 2 for us, 3 pending"
They pay the 5, they only get 2
"What's a pending coffee?" I ask
"Wait and see"
More customers. Two girls get they coffees, they pay normally.
After a while, 3 lawyears ask for 7 coffees, they only drink 3, but paid the for the 7.
While we were talking, a poor man enters the shop.
With a soft voice he asks "Do you have any pending coffee?"
This type of charity was born in Napoli (Naples, Italy)
People pay in anticipation for the coffees and even meals for others who can't.
