Waitress receives $1,000 tip

submitted on May 21, 2013 by JackBauer in "Member's Lounge"

It is great to see there is still some generosity left in the world today.

Some days, you make more in tips than others.

A woman on Tumblr shared a story about how her waitress mother recently got a $1,000 tip from a customer on a $60 bill.

The rather large gratuity came after the woman told the customer how her family is from Italy and she has studied art history, but has never been able to visit the country.

On the receipt, the man wrote, “Your ticket to Italy. Enjoy!!” What’s more, the man reportedly left the tip and quietly left the restaurant, without making any sort of scene.

The woman’s daughter was impressed with the generous showing, saying, “There are still nice people in the world.” Ciao!

    I bartend and many years ago, a customer would regularly leave me and my co-workers anywhere from $100-$500 as a tip. He even gave me a $300 Lowe's gift card when I bought my house. He never wanted anything in return. Just a generous guy.
