The narrator in the story is an objective observer. He discusses that the two waiters talk about the old man as if he were not there. Initially the reader believes that they both think the same and are both in a hurry for the man to leave the cafe.
As the story continues the reader learns that the older waiter is more sympathetic to the old man. Finally, the reader becomes aware that the old man and the waiter have a lot in common. They are both older and they both have difficulty sleeping. I believe that the narrator looks at both sides but is sympathetic with the old man and the older waiter.
