Important lesson – “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. “50¢,” 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. “35¢!” 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.

P.S.  pentru domnul care mi-a lăsat ieri 10 lire bacşiş 😆

Ştiaţi că…? [33]

Azi, 3 aprilie, e ziua mamei în Marea Britanie şi în Irlanda. Tradiţia lor spune că, în această zi, mamele ar trebui să fie alături de copiii lor şi să se bucure de acest moment. Cu siguranţă am mămici printre cititoare- de aceea o să vă urez răbdare şi momente de neuitat alături de copiii voştri. Pentru cine n-a avut ocazia de 8 Martie să facă un gest frumos, vă puteţi revanşa- aveţi un motiv în plus.

Am mai observat pe Google că Mother’s Day coincide cu Ice Cream Sundae- 199 ani de la prima documentare a desertului de îngheţată- o zi de două ori dulce, ca mamele noastre.
