Tip of The Day

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 
10 year old boy entered a hotel 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.

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and 
studied the coins in it. 

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired. 

By now more people were waiting for a table and the 
waitress was growing impatient. 

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied." 

The little boy again counted his coins. 

"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said. 

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table 
and walked away. 

The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. 

When the waitress came back, she began to cry 
as she wiped down the table. 

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels 
and five pennies - 

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, 
because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip. 

Thatís the tip of the day.

Laugh of The Day:

An elderly man was quite unhappy because he had 
lost his favorite hat. 

Instead of buying a new one, he decided he would 
go to church and swipe one out of the vestibule. 

When he got there, an usher intercepted him at the door 
and took him to a pew where he had to sit and listen to the 
entire sermon on "The Ten Commandments." 

After church, the man met the preacher in the vestibule doorway, 
shook his hand vigorously, and told him 
"I want to thank you preacher for saving my soul today. 
I came to church to steal a hat and after hearing your sermon on 
the 10 Commandments, I decided against it."

Preacher: "You mean the commandment 'I shall not steal' 
changed your mind?" 

Old Man: "No, the one about adultery did. 
As soon as you said that I remembered where I left my old hat!"

You never know what the congregation gets out of a sermon.
