After reading this, you will be so amazed how the little boy reacted to the waitress.
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?’
’500 Naira,’ replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of notes in it.
‘How much is a dish of plain ice cream?’ he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.
’300 naira,’ she said brusquely.
The little boy again counted the notes. ‘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, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 150 naira – her tip.”
Whatever situation you are in life, be kind. Try to be patient, try to be a servant in whatever environment you find yourself. Your reward might not be from human but God.
