A Sudden Celebration|یک جشن ناگهانی

In a restaurant, people were enjoying their time. All of a sudden, a young man jumped off his chair and screamed:  “I became father, hooray. I would like to invite a random table to be my guest. And what celebration can be without a cake?” then pointed at an old couple.

The waiter brought a feast of appetizers, and great dishes of food, and at the end, a beautiful cake. The young man paid for everything, and that night ended.

Ten-fifteen years later that young man came to the same restaurant with his wife and their two sons with ages 5 to 7.

The owner of the restaurant recognized the man’s face and went close and said: “Are you the young man who became a father while he was eating in my restaurant?”

The customer smiled and said: “What a great memory, yes, it was me.”

The owner asked: “Your child must be around 15 years old, now?”

The customer said: “I wasn’t even married at that day.”

The owner asked: “If you don’t mind my curiosity, why did you shouted that you became a father that night. You paid for a table as of your happiness and part of the celebration?”

The customer replied with a smile: “I was eating that night and overheard the table next to me. The old couple was celebrating their anniversary. They had a budget which was covering only a bowl of soup for each.

(The wife said quietly to her husband; I wish we could have steak with salad and fries, not to mention a whole delicious cake. It’s a special night tonight. The husband replied, we don’t need a steak. We are healthy and have each other.)”

I couldn’t ignore that, and the only way to pay for their food and not to hurt their feelings, was to create a fake celebration.”
