Second hand food

I was stunned when a man walked up to the table opposite mine, picked up a cup and drank from it.

Didn’t three young Filipino ladies just eat at that table, and then leave less a minute ago? I didn’t see the man put down anything. So he was drinking from one of those cups left by the young ladies?

Then he picked up a piece of bread or something to eat.

How desperate do you have to be?

When I recovered enough from the shock to want to buy the man something to eat, he had disappeared. I looked around, but he was nowhere to be found. As if it never happened.
