First, let’s start out the week with a Crocs cartoon. Are they shoe or sandal… or just plain wrong?
And for Our Blog today, I am posting a story of kindness. There’s something about this that just grabs me when I read it, and I thought it would be a good Monday reminder. Hard to credit it, but I have seen this story in several positive thinking books:
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. The waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
“How much is an ice cream sundae?”
“50 cents,” replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins that he had just removed from his pocket.
“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he then asked.
There were several people now waiting for a table, and the waitress was growing impatient as she waited for the boy to order.
“35 cents,” 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 his ice cream, paid the cashier and the left.
When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table. Then, she swallowed hard as she looked down at the table.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish… 15 cents – her tip.
And finally, our pic o’ day:
