Football, and eating lunch alone

This is absolutely brilliant, read the full excerpt from the link below. It is such a common thing in most companies to find people eating alone, and no one talking to them. I have tried to change it, now I eat alone and accept that exclusion is the norm, even if you sit next to each other for years. I try not to make people uncomfortable by breaking unwritten codes. Above all, you should always know where you are not wanted.


" 'You happen to see another boy off by himself, go sit with him or bring him over to sit with you and your friends,' Biff said. 'I don't care if you know him or not. I don't care if he's the best athlete in the school or the so-called nerd with his head always down in the books. You go get him and you make him feel wanted, you make him feel special. Simple, right? Well, that's being a man built for others.'
