Always Remember Those Who Serve.

In the days when an ice cream sundae 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 sundae?” he asked.
“Fifty cents,” replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and Studied the coins in it.
“Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?” he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the Waitress was growing impatient.
“Thirty-five cents,” she brusquely replied. The little boy again counted his 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 left.. When the waitress Came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the Table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, Were two nickels and five pennies..

You see, he couldn’t have the sundae, because he had To have enough left to leave her a tip.

Wow how cute if thats true and im sure it could be many children i have seen and many of the younger generation in general seem besides wearing hoodies and stabbing each other be quite capable of incredible acts of generosity and compassion simply because of their nature and society and the way they were brought up however at the moment i believe our society needs still radical change to accommodate the latest and greatest of our talent of the human race.

You do realize that he left a 42% tip? In that era, a nickel tip would have been considered generous.
