A Kind Gentleman

Barcelona’s. His first Saturday night. Delicious Italian food lured the crowds. Pete Barcelona himself offered him a waiter’s job after he’d read about Dan’s older brother Vince dying in Afghanistan.
At one of Dan’s tables sat an elderly couple and a wheel-chaired young war vet who’d lost both arm and leg, but not his smile. Dan thought of Vince as he carried final plates away.
Then the soldier said, “Check, please.”
Dan felt in his apron the crumpled bills of generous tips and said, “Folks, a kind gentleman who was sitting over there picked up your tab, tips and all!”

  1. The title "Flashing my shorts" is priceless! Did you come up with that?
