Yesterday a waiter at Applebee's in New York posted this photo to Reddit, saying that he received Chuck E. Cheese tokens and tickets from a tiny patron. The toddler was with his parents, who gave traditional money, and he handed his treasured items over at the end of the meal. The waiter writes, "He smiled and gave em to me, and I couldn't help but smile back... those meant a lot to him, and he gave them to me." Of course, two tickets won't even get you an eraser at the prize station, but it's the thought that counts.

If this was too "feel good" for you, then keep reading. While "researching" this story, we stumbled into this depressing underworld of Chuck E. Cheese ticket counterfeiters—one calls it "the perfect con, especially if you get a kid in on it with you to avoid suspicion." So this kid was probably just trying to unload some bad replicas.
