I am often struck by how generous the poor are

An old women sat down in a cafe and the busy waitress came to take her order. How much is this nice a piece of cake, the old women asked? 3 Euros replied the waitress. The old women dug into her pocket and counted out her change. How much is the simplest cake? 2 euros the waitress replied. And she was getting impatient because she had many tables to serve. I will have the simple cake the old women said. And she eat her cake slowly. And then she left the café with the change on the table. She left 2 euros for the cake, and 1 euro for a tip. And when she found the tip, the waitress cried.
