Conversation in the agora

Scene 1 of 1 
Caffe Nero

A new customer approaches a table. As he does so, the couple on the next table pile their prolific collection of cups, mugs and plates on that table, grabbing their coats

New Customer: Oh thanks for that. [No reply] You could have left them where they were.
Departing customer 1: It's untidy.
New customer: Well you could have taken them to the counter.
Departing customer 2: [Mildly affronted] Why should we?
New customer: Ah, yes. Well, I quite see your point of view. And it's your democratic right --
Departing customer 2: It is. Yes.
New customer: to be a thoughtless waste of a human body.
