 2. Ask for a second scoop of ice cream after they scoop the first.

When ordering ice cream, most of the time your first scoop is smaller than your second. Problem solved, ask the ice cream scooper for a second scoop after he/she has already scooped the first scoop. That way, the first scoop will be the same size as the second and you won’t loose any cream reported theawesomedaily.com.
