The impetus for this article started with an anecdote shared at a TTN SIG. Let me share it with you and please send your feedback to the email address at the end of the article.
My friend, Alice, had lost her husband 6 months before. She told how she had returned to her winter home in Florida, a community where she and her husband had lived for over 10 years. Being a widow was hard to bear, but she was managing and looking forward to seeing old
She learned there was a group dinner planned and Alice mentioned it to her friend, the wife of a couple with whom they had socialized. Alice said she'd like to sit at their table.
Imagine her dismay when the friend responded that Alice should really sit at the singles table instead.
