Being a waiter is a difficult and thankless job. They work long hours and receive lower salaries and, worst of all, are often mistreated by both their fellow employees and their customers. One of the rules waiters have to follow is to “Always please the customer.” This can be incredibly difficult. However, it is necessary to get a good tip.
At a popular restaurant, a waitress was servicing tables as usual. She noticed a young boy come in and sit down at a table. Immediately, this annoyed the waitress. She knew just from working in the job for a while that most kids didn’t tip well. Still, she knew that she had to serve him.
As she approached the table, she hoped that she could take care of him quickly and then whisk him out the door. She placed water in front of him along with a menu. After consulting the menu for a couple of minutes, the boy questioned the cost of an ice cream sundae. She told him and he grimaced. It was clear that he didn’t have enough.
The waitress rolled her eyes. If he didn’t even have enough cash for a measly ice cream sundae, he definitely wouldn’t be leaving a significant tip. He ended up purchasing an even smaller single scoop ice cream cone. She brought the dish to him and he eventually left. When she looked down at the check, she was shocked.
She saw that he had given her a 25% tip. He had gotten a less expensive dish so that he could give her a good tip. She felt so bad for how she had treated him. She vowed never to judge people by their appearance or a trait ever again.
