Once upon a time, a little boy went to an Ice cream shop and climbed onto a stool. He caught the eye of the waiter and asked, “What is the cost of an Ice Cream Sundae?”
“50 cents,” the waiter replied. The boy checked into his pockets, pulled out some coins, and began counting. The waiter frowned impatiently as he had other customers to wait on.
Then the boy asked the waiter “How much is a plain Ice Cream Cone?”. The waiter sighed and rolled her eyes. “30 cents,” he said while showing an irritated face.
Again, the boy counted his coins. At last, he said, “I’ll have the plain Ice Cream cone, please.” He put exactly 30 cents on the counter. The waiter took the coins, brought the ice cream, and walked away.
About ten minutes later, she returned and found the boy is not there and he had finished his ice cream. The boy was gone. The waiter picked up the empty dish and was surprised on what he saw there.
