Consideration

          
         One day, a ten - year - old boy went to an ice-cream shop, sat at a table        
         and asked the waitress, "How much is an ice-cream cone?"
  
         She said, "seventy five cents."
  
         The boy started counting the coins he had in his head. Then he asked how        
         much a small cup of ice-cream was.
  
         The waitress impatiently replied, "sixty five cents".  The boy said, "I will        
         have the small ice-cream cup."
  
         He had his ice-cream, paid the bill and left. When the waitress came to pick        
         up the empty plate, she was touched. Underneath were ten one-cent coins as        
         tip.  The little boy had consideration for the waitress before he ordered        
         his ice-cream. He showed sensitivity and caring. He thought of others before        
         himself.
  
         If we all thought like the little boy, we would have a great place to live.    
      
         Show consideration, courtesy, and politeness.

         Thoughtfulness shows a caring attitude.
