Article 450.

Article Published in The Gulf Today UAE on 9April 16, (My Article 450)

Food for thought

I saw a guy at a restaurant sitting on the next table. After ordering food, he looked at me and smiled. I reciprocated. 

He introduced himself saying he was working for a multinational company and that he frequently travelled to various countries. We had a short, hearty chat. 

After we finished, the waiter presumed that we were both together and asked me whether he should make a single bill. 

Since that person was friendly and jovial, I told the waiter to give me the total bill. However, the gentleman, while praising my gesture to pay, said he would prefer to go Dutch.

I was surprised but felt happy about his frankness.
