Appearance can be deceiving and that is why we should never judge a book by its cover. On top of that, we should never treat the poor any different than the rich. Some people may not have a lot of money, but they are rich in heart, and that’s what matters most.
A waitress named Maria was told by her colleagues to only be nice to those who are well dressed because they are the ones who leave generous tips and not to waste a lot of time with the “rest” of the customers. Maria, however, knew she should treat everyone the same, regardless of their appearance or status.
One day, a homeless man entered the diner where she worked and asked for several dishes. Although he looked like someone who couldn’t afford that much food, Maria brought to him everything he asked for. She was well aware that in case the person doesn’t pay she would be the one paying instead.
After some time, the man left the place and left a $100 tip along with a piece of paper with a message written on it. He praised Maria for what she did and how she treated him.
If you want to know who that person was, check out the whole story in the video below.
We don’t know whether this is a true story or not, but anyways, it is a nice reminder that we should always be kind.
