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
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.
