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..

My thought for day is that we must never forget the people who are there to serve us.

With many peaceful blessings
