How hunger comes about

When I first saw this cartoon, the immediate thought that came to mind was "omg how true". It shouldn't be a scene too unfamiliar to most. In this situation, your late order means you join the queue while your friends are already tucking in. By the time you get your order, your companions are almost done and 3 possible scenarios then ensue.

  1. They surreptitiously ration their last few mouthfuls to keep you company for as long as they can.
  2. Impatient glances and/or repeated insinuations along the lines of "How long more are you going to take?"
  3. Attempts at polite conversation are met with prolonged silence because you can only reply in between huge mouthfuls of chugging down what's left on your plate.

Next time, just drink water. Oh, who am I kidding?
