The old manknows this and recognizes that he is completely cut off from the sounds that he probably had not thought much of as ayoung man. In this cafe so late at night he is not missing much. In fact, he might prefer to miss the conversation abouthim between the two waiters. The younger waiter is repulsed by the old man. He says, "I wouldn 't want to be that old.
What the young waiter doesn’t understand is, his life will not remain the same forever because ageism is what caused the loneliness and hopelessness that the old man suffers from.

A. An article from The New York Times titled “Should Couples Live Together Before Marriage?” describe that pre-marital cohabitation results from the thinking that 1. Couples will have a “test drive” of the marriage – the problem with this is that the couple goes into the relationship thinking that if it doesn’t work out it can easily be ended rather than working at it to make it successful. 2. They will get used to sharing space with their partner and have a more equal division of household labor.

My opinion on such observation was that the customer had definitely been to The Lost Dog Cafe before and that is my generalization of how the customer was so comfortable and familiar with how the restaurant works although I could've been wrong. There is a chance that this visit was their first but they were just familiar with the concept of restaurants with a bar. I also showed bias when I was talking about the advertising technique The Cafe used.

Some people cannot enjoy their life after retirement due to chronic health problems such as arthritis, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases which may be caused because of their working patterns and unhealthy lifestyle during young age. WIDOWHOOD: On an average, Women tend to live 5-6 years older than men because they get married to older men. It is a very painful condition when the husbands die at a younger age and the wives do not have a support. The responsibilities double and widows tend to blame themselves for the loss and go into depression, denial and seclusion.
