            In the days when an ice cream sundae cost less, a 10 years old boy entered a hotel coffe shop and sat a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. “How much is an ice cream sundae?”
“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

            The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it. “How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.

“35 cents,” she said brusquely.

            The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said, the waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy ate it, paid the cashier and departed.

            When the waitress returned, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

What is the moral message of the story?

  1. when there is a will there is a way. 

  2. Don't judge a book by its cover.

  3. Every cloud has a silver lining. 

  4. Simplicity is the best  policy. 

Jawaban:

Pelajaran yang dapat dipetik dari cerita tersebut adalah anak yang terlihat tidak memilik uang tersebut ternyata memilih untuk menyisakan uangnya agar bisa memberikan tip pada pelayan dibandingkan dengan membeli es krim yang lebih enak untuk dirinya sendiri sehingga peribahasa yang paling tepat untuk menggambarkan pesan moral cerita tersebut adalah “Jangan menilai seseorang hanya dari luarnya saja”. Pilihan jawaban A salah karena artinya ‘di mana ada niat, di situ ada kemauan’, pilihan jawaban C salah karena artinya ‘badai pasti berlalu’, dan pilihan jawaban D salah karena artinya ‘jangan pernah mempersulit segala sesuatu’. Maka jawaban B adalah jawaban yang paling tepat.
