In the days when an ice cream cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a settlement and sat at a table. The waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

-How much is an ice cream with chocolate and peanut butter? -asked the child.

-Fifty cents - replied the woman.

The child took the hand of pocket and examined the coins.

-How much is a single ice cream? -He asked again. Some people expected table and the waitress was already a little impatient.

-Twenty-five cents - said sharply.

The child returned to the coin counting.

-I want ice cream only - he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the Bill on the table and withdrew. The child finished the ice cream, paid in the box and went out. When the waitress returned to clean the table, it cost him to swallow hard to see that there, neatly next to the platter empty, there were twenty-five cents: your tip.

Never judge someone before you know why.
