Sounds like my Dad.

Did he fight in a war, by any chance? My husband was in Vietnam, and he's very uncomfortable sitting with his back to the window or door of a restaurant.

I prefer a booth because of the privacy and the fact that there is room to park my purse and sweater and any packages on the bench and not the floor.

That could be it has to do with psychology or just an aching back. Booths are padded.

I would have taken your coin rather than go home, even with all of my pride and independence. But I wouldn't have needed it because we get the Daily Sun every day.

In these situations, I soothe my pride and conscience by adding a little more to any collection that I participate in...

Again. I say Thank you for your kindness. Please don't be hurt or offended even a little. It takes all kinds to make this world. And most of us are pretty good eggs.

Ha! Sounds like our household, but both of us have to sit where we can the see the majority of people. At the movies, ALWAYS the very top row.

Back to the original OP; I grew up as poor as a church mouse. My Dads sisters always tried to buy my brother and I things; I always turned down their offer, my brother didn’t. I guess even as a child, I was too proud to accept any handouts. I guess to a fault, I still am. I’m two months into shoulder surgery and have turned down many offers from neighbors to help me with my lawn.
