A Sign of the Times—

Earlier tonight I ate dinner at the restaurant in my hotel. The waitress greeted me and handed me an iPad, which electronically housed their menu. I must admit that it surprised me a bit, but I began to click on the categories and didn’t think much more about it.

The waitress stopped at the next table and I heard her ask the man seated there if he was ready to order.

He looked up and said, “No—no, I’m not ready. I’m still trying to figure this menu out.”

I looked over and saw that he was probably in his late 70’s or early 80’s. I bet if you had asked him (or any of us) twenty-five years ago, if he thought menus would be computerized in restaurants, he would have had a good laugh over it!

The times are a changin’!
