When we returned by train from Cologne to Brussels, where we had visited the Christmas market, there were quite a lot of people who had the same idea as us and the train was nearly full.
Just right besides us on the other side of the alley sat a man in his 40th with a computer and a couple of Newspapers, the perfect business man. At one moment he had to stand up to look in luggage over him. Then he sat down again.
My friend Ilona had noticed that something had dropped out of his pocket and lay on the floor. She kicked me in my side laughed and said l: "I bed these are condoms". I had a closer look, but even with my glasses I couldn't see it properly.
In this moment the guy who just sat before us turned around and said : "Do you believe what I believe "? We both laughed and said, yes it can only be that. I told Ilona to pick it up and to give it to the black suited posh looking business man, as she sat just besides the ally. At first she didn't want to, but then finally picked up the box, shaked a little his arm and showed him the box. "I think it's yours" she said. Instead of being embarassed or ashamed, he made a big smile from one ear to the other and said : "Oh thank you, good that you found them" ! And when the train arrived in Brussels, he made us a little sign : "have fun too" !
We both noticed that a lot has changed ever since !
