Pregnant Waitress Gets Large Tip From Generous Customer
FaithTap Staff 2/22/2019
Some diners study the check, pull out their calculators, and then do the math. While others are a lot more seasoned when it comes to appropriate dining. They take a look at the number at the bottom, add 20%, and round that up to the next biggest round number. Voila! You've got yourself a tip.
Tipping is customary to dining. It may not apply to every corner of the world, but it's almost mandatory in the United States. People should remember to tip their servers. After all, the food and service industry is no way easy. Waiters have to take one order after another while throwing away chewed-up bones on the garbage bin after every meal.
Maybe that's why one woman decided to go the extra mile and gift this pregnant server a tip she won't be forgetting anytime soon.
Sarah Clark was nine months pregnant when she received the tip of a lifetime. The young mom continued to work hard during her shifts at the Pita Jungle in Phoenix, Arizona. Little did she know, she was in for a huge surprise just in time for the holidays.
You see, Sarah got $900 in tips from a longtime customer. The unnamed woman is a regular at the restaurant and happened to know Sarah quite well. After dining in, she prepared the $900 tip as well as a handwritten note on the receipt.
"This is God's money, he gave it to us so we can give it to you," the note read before adding a heartfelt "God Bless" in the end.
Sarah was initially shocked by the amount. So much so that she had to do a second take! When the truth finally sunk in, Sarah couldn't help but cry tears of joy. Needless to say, she was beyond grateful for the heartwarming and selfless gesture.
The timing couldn't be any more perfect. With Sarah giving birth soon, she wasn't going to receive payment for her time off. To make life even more complicated, Sarah's fiance had been temporarily out of work following a knee injury.
Sarah said that she and the woman interacted numerous times. She happened to be pregnant as well, so she likely sympathized with Sarah more than ever. But even more special than the tip was the note the woman left. It will forever be a reminder that kindness still exists in this world.
A great tip from an even greater heart! We hope this heartwarming story inspired you to spread a little bit of kindness today.
