The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fires and a drink.
He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.
He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.
He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then sat the cup down between them.....As he began to eat his few bits of hamburger, the people around them were looking and whispering.
Obviously they were thinking, " That poor old couple ---all they can afford is one meal for the two of them."
As the man began to eat his fries a young man approached the couple and politely offered to buy another meal for them. The old man said, they were perfectly fine and use to sharing everything.
People closer to the table noticed the old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.
Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said," No, thank you, we are use to sharing everything."
Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with a napkin, the young man came over yet again to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked, " What is it you are waiting for?"
She answered..........." THE TEETH." !!!
