Wanting to get rid of the kid, the waitress quickly brought out his ice cream, dropped it on the counter in front of him, then set the bill next to it and quickly walked away. She never bothered to returned to see how he was doing. When the boy finished his ice cream, he picked up his bill, paid the cashier and walked out.
Noticing the kid finally left, the waitress walked over to the counter and picked up his dish. When she went to wipe down the counter, her eyes teared at what she saw. There, stacked neatly beside his empty dish, was one quarter, two dimes and a nickel. The kid actually had enough for a sundae but chose not to get it because then he wouldn't have had enough to leave her a proper tip.
