One waitress, identified only as Brandi, was brought to tears after a customer left her a generous tip for a good cause.
Waitressing can be a hard task, especially if you happen to come across ungrateful customers. However, this isn’t the story of this particular waitress.
A woman, identified only as Brandi S., received a generous tip from a customer. Brandi works as a waitress and she was talking to somebody, probably a colleague of hers, about how much she missed her son, because she wasn’t able to be there with him. Fortunately, one of the customers Brandi was serving at that time, overheard her sorrows and decided to do something good for the woman.
Shortly after the customer was finished with the meal, Brandi saw the receipt for the bill and was so shocked by it that she was brought to tears. As it turned out, the customer had left a $200 tip on top of the $9.53 bill. The back of the receipt explained it all. The customer had quickly scribbled a short explanation behind the act of kindness. He or she had written that he/she overheard the waitress talking about her son. Thus, the customer felt obliged to help the woman in need. The scribbled note read that Brandi should use the tip to visit her son.
The heartwarming act of kindness was photographed and uploaded to the popular image sharing website Imgur. It became such a hit on the web that it even made headlines on the British Metro! Brandi was so moved by this customer’s generous actions that she shared how she “broke down” in tears after she saw the receipt and the number 200 written on it.
