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 the small cone of ice-cream was. The waitress impatiently replied , “sixty-five cents.” The boy said, “I’ll have the small ice-cream cup.” The boy ate his ice-cream, paid the bill and left. When the waitress came to pick up the empty plate, she was touched. Underneath was ten one- cents coin left as the tip.

 "The young 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.
