Thursday Thought February

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.
