A lesson for all of us!


”We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”

Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers – three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’

It’s simple – people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.”

P.S: This is not mine, I just found it on Tumblr!

  1. Pacat ca daca la noi faci asa te inteapa vanzatorul 😦 – la noi mai stau carsetori cateodata langa placintarie sau brutarie, daca sunt in toane bune il intreb ce vrea sa manance ca bani nu ii dau

  2. Foarte bine faci iczs, desi uite, zilele trecute povestea o femeie in autobuz ca a cumparat o placinta unui copilas de-al strazii, de vreo 10 ani si a refuzat-o, cerandu-i bani pentru tigari…unii nu apreciaza mancarea dar tu incearca. Mereu incearca, e pacatul lui/ei daca refuza. Si incearca sa fii maides in toane bune :d O zi buna
