Laugh With Lisa: $100 Tip

Lisa DeMarco brings a reassuring message.

A well know “good tipper” walked into a restaurant holding out a $100 bill.

He asked, “Who will get me a cup of coffee for this $100?”

Four waitresses scatter to the coffee section. “I am going to give this to one of you but first, let me do this,” and he proceeds to crumple up the bill.

“Who still wants it?” he asked.

Still all the ladies were interested. “Well” he replied, “What if I drop it on the ground and start to grind it into the floor with my dirty shoe? Will you still want it then?”

Again, they were all still eager to earn the money.

“Even if it is all crumpled up and dirty?” He asked.

“Yes!” they all answered.

“Well then my friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I would have done to the money, you still wanted it. Because money doesn’t lose value. It’s still worth $100 -dirty, clean, wrinked, wet.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way, and we feel worthless.

But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special, and no one can ever take that away. Don’t forget that!
