Always Remember Those Who Serve…


In the days, when softy ice cream cost much less, a 10-year old boy entered a cafe and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. "How much is the "softy ice cream ?" "Fifty paise," 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. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient. "Thirty-five paise," she said brusquely.


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, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, was a twenty five paise coin - her tip.

“Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves.” ~ Helen Keller
