Care about everyone

In the days when an ice cream cost much less, a 10 year old 

boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress 

put a glass of water in front of him.

“How much is an ice cream ?”

“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a 

number of coins in it.

“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some 

people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a 

bit impatient.

“35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice 

cream,” he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table 

and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the 

cashier and departed.

When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the 

table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – 

her tip.
