One day, a hungry and sad-looking man walked into a restaurant, and said to the waitress who came up to take his order, 'I would like some stew please - and a few kind words.'
The waitress went away for a few minutes and then returned with a plate of stew which she placed before the customer.
'That's my order all right,' said the man, smiling. 'Now, do you have a few kind words?'
'Yes,' whispered the waitress, 'don't eat the stew!'
