One of those heartwarming moments tonight.
I've been eating on-and-off at the Fryer's Delight - an excellent fish and chip shop on Theobalds Road - for I guess thirty years.
This evening, at a neighbouring table, were a young Italian couple experimenting with the quintessential British cuisine (though the Fryer's Delight is Italian run, but let that pass). She ordered a coke then realised that - as credit cards aren't accepted - they didn't have the money for the drink as well as the food. So she handed back the unopened coke can.
Two minutes later, another young diner, as he was leaving, handed the couple ... a can of coke. He'd paid for it himself. Before they had realised what was happening, their benefactor had disappeared into the night. A small act of kindness - but a nice one.
