Would you've behaved in a Similar Fashion?

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 hand. 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 has 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.
