The bachelor finished his meal and placed his tip on the table. The waiter took one look at the 15 cents and said:”Thank you for your generosity. You can always tell the character of a diner by the way he tips.”

“Oh, really?” he said. “What do these five-cent coins tell you about me?”

“Well, yoe put the three coins in a row,” said the waiter. “That tells me you are tidy for starters. The first coin tells me you are frugal and the second coin tells me you are a bachelor.”

“That’s true,” said the diner, somewhat impressed. “And what does the third coin tell you?”

“That tells me your father was a bachelor too.”
