A 9 year-old boy entered a café and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" the little boy inquired.
"One dollar,” said the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and considered the coins he had. "Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he asked.
By now, more customers were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing very impatient. "seventy five cents," she brusquely replied.
The little boy once more counted his coins. "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said with a smile.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked off.
The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left.
When the waitress came back, she started to cry. As she wiped down the table, there placed neatly alongside the empty dish were two dimes and five pennies. You see, he couldn't have the sundae as he had to have enough money to leave her a tip.
Be kind as you never realize the thoughts of others.
