Watching People

As I spend a lot of my time in transit, working at Cafes, I have the chance to watch many people. When I worked in Israel my daily routine was to drive to work, work, and go back home which did not give me a lot of “people watching” time.

Sometimes I feel happy watching people, sometimes sad and sometimes just surprised.

Last week I was working at a Cafe, when I noticed a woman spending a LOT of time cutting her Pie. By “A Lot”, I mean she was moving her knife back and forth not applying any pressure on the Pie, which basically means she did not cut anything.
Watched her for 3 minutes, in which she kept moving her knife, not making any progress.

Was she just absent minded, thinking about something else, or is it some kind of ritual for her. I will obviously never know.
