Few Lessons for Life…

Some stories I have read/heard from various places/people. Don’t know the real authors. Just sharing them…

Story 1Treat each customer equally

When an ice cream sundae cost much less than now, a 10 year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat down at a table.

A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.
"50 cents" replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.
By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient. "35 cents" she rudely replied.

The little boy again counted his 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 the ice cream, paid the cashier and left.
When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents.

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.

Treat people equally and unbiased.

Thanks for reading and keep checking this space, will be posting few more short stories.
