Do Not Judge the Cover

Di zaman es krim sundae masih murah, seorang anak laki-laki berumur 10 tahun masuk ke sebuah Coffee Shop Hotel, dan duduk di meja. Seorang pelayan wanita menghampiri, dan memberikan air putih di hadapannya. Anak ini kemudian bertanya “Berapa ya… harga satu ice cream sundae?” katanya. “50 sen…” balas si pelayan.
At the time when sundae ice cream still cheap, a 10 year old boy come into a Coffee Shop Hotel and sit at a table. A waitress give him a glass of water. Then that boy ask her: “How much a sundae ice cream?” he said. “50 cents,” said the waitress.

Si anak kemudian mengeluarkan isi sakunya dan menghitung koin-koin di kantongnya, “Wah… Kalau ice cream yang biasa saja berapa?” katanya lagi. Tetapi kali ini orang-orang yang duduk di meja-meja lain sudah mulai banyak… dan pelayan ini mulai tidak sabar. “35 sen” kata si pelayan sambil uring-uringan.
He takes his money from his pocket and start counting. “Hm, how about the ordinary one?” he said. There are many people in every table now and this waitress is becoming impatient anymore. “35 cents,” she said.
 
Anak ini mulai menghitung lagi koin-koin yang tadi ada di kantongnya. “Bu… saya pesan ice cream yang biasa saja ya…” ujarnya. Sang pelayan kemudian membawa ice cream tersebut, meletakkan kertas kuitansi di atas meja dan terus melengos berjalan. Si anak ini kemudian makan ice cream, membayar di kasir, dan pergi.
Then he counts his money again. “Mam, I buy the ordinary one please,” he said. The waitress bring him that ice cream, and put the bill on the table and go away. The boy start to eat his ice cream, pay to cashier, and go.
 
Ketika si pelayan wanita tadi kembali untuk membersihkan meja anak kecil tadi, dia mulai menangis terharu. Rapi tersusun di samping piring kecilnya yang kosong, ada 2 buah koin 10-sen dan 5 buah koin 1-sen.
When the waitress clean his table, she start crying. There’s a two coins of 10 cents and five coins of 1 cents beside the empty little plate. 
Anak kecil ini tidak bisa memesan ice-cream sundae, karena tidak memiliki cukup untuk memberi sang pelayan uang tip yang “layak”…
That little boy can buy the sundae ice cream but he is not because he doesn’t have enough money to give a decent tip to the waitress.

Jangan terlalu cepat menilai seseorang dari apa yang kelihatan saja, karena siapa tahu, di sisi yang tak terlihat, dia sedang melakukan kebaikan bagi Anda.

Do not to soon to judge other people by his/her look like,
because who knows,
in the other side that you can’t imagine,
he/she is making one good thing for you.
