You know how it is, it’s just like why did you put up with not being able to go to the restaurant.  Now you could maybe go in a restaurant and you could order, Standard Drugstore, you could order hot dog, they give it to you in a bag and you walk.  Five-and-ten-cent store, same thing.  Like that.  There was a little place down there by the bus station which was then on Water Street.  Right next to that was this little shop where was a little restaurant that if you didn’t want to buy something in there you could go in here, but they were trying to be encouraging.  Back in their stockroom, and I went in there once, in the middle of the floor where they keep the extra stock and stuff, there was a little table.  And I don’t know if it was a chair or a bench.  If I wanted to get a meal I could order the meal and I could walk in the back and sit down at that table in the stockroom and I could eat there.  At least they let you sit there and eat.  The rest of the places you bought your food and you walked.
