“What will you have?” she said gruffly and impatiently. She figured this kid would cost her extra time causing her to lose tip money from other customers.
“How much is a hot fudge sundae?” he asked her as he counted up his change.
“You have just enough,” she growled after taking up her precious time to add up his coins., “but it will take all you have.”
“Oh, no, I can’t do that,” he exclaimed, “Then I’ll just have a single scoop of vanilla ice cream.” He knew that would leave him with money left over.
“ Yup,” the waitress thought,” he’s already wasting my time.”
She sure didn’t appreciate Timmy as a customer and was glad to see him leave.
She went over to the table to clear it when her heart sank and a tear trickled down her cheek.
You see, Timmy had left all of his money on the table. The waitress then realized he didn’t order that sundae he wanted so badly because he wouldn’t have had enough money to leave her a tip.
