"Two Nickels and Five Pennies"
When an ice cream sundae cost much less than now, a young boy entered a coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.
People were now waiting for a table, and the waitress was impatient. "Thirty-five cents," she said angrily. The little boy again counted the coins in his hand. "I'll have the plain ice cream."
The waitress brought the ice cream and walked away. The
boy ate his ice cream, paid the cashier, and departed.
When the waitress came back, she swallowed hard at what
she saw. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish,
were two nickels and five pennies -- her tip.
