In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a busy hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. The boy asked, "How much is an ice cream sundae?’’
"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.
Growing impatient with the boy, the waitress abruptly replied, "35 cents."
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 to wipe down the table, she swallowed hard at what she saw. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.
