In the days, when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 years

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 wanted enough left

to leave her a tip.
