Mini Saga #61 – Thoughtfulness

This simple story about thoughtfulness was adapted from a previous story that I heard a few years ago.

Being thoughtful is to be considerate for the needs of other people. It can show up in simple everyday things in life. I have tried to capture an example in 50 words.

Mini Saga #61 – Thoughtfulness

The waitress repeated, “Medium $3, Large $3.50.” The kid had emptied his pocket. He had $4 in total. The waitress was getting impatient. Five minutes. Finally, the kid asked for a medium scoop. Later, the waitress came to clean and swallowed hard. There was $1 bill left as a tip.
