Who Really Cares What They Thought?

In Guildford was a cafe known as Brett’s, an expensive and exclusive place where only the very rich visited.

In the cafe window were displayed the most delicious cakes even the creator of “Alice in Wonderland” could imagine.

Along the street walked Lewis Carroll (the author of “Alice in Wonderland”) and he happened to see a group of poor, ill-clad and unwashed children, staring longingly at the mouth watering cakes in Brett’s windows.

Coming up behind the boys and girls, Lewis Carroll said quietly, “I think all of you would feel better after eating some cakes”.

Then, without more ado, he opened the door of the cafe, ushered in his little tribe of waifs and strays, sat them down at tables, and made sure that every one of them ate as he or she could possibly eat.

What, I wonder, did all the other customers, fashionable ladies and gentlemen, think of it all?

But, who really cares what they thought?
