When an elderly man walked and sat alone in a restaurant the waiters couldn’t help but notice his rather gloomy appearance. The man sat quietly by himself and ordered a coke. As the waitress was serving him his drink she saw the tears in the man’s eyes but did not dare to ask him straight up what was wrong.
A couple of minutes later, before the waitress could even return to offer him a refill, the mysterious sad looking man was gone. There were only $3 and change as well as a handwritten message on the napkin left on the table. The message on the napkin stated that this was the man’s wife most favorite place to eat and they would dine there at each marriage anniversary. Sadly, this was the man’s first anniversary without his wife who had passed away recently. He used the time to thank the staff for putting a smile on his wife’s face and left a $3 tip.
The heartwarming napkin was uploaded on Reddit by the user “GracieFails” who shared the entire story on social media. She also admitted that the napkin brought tears to all of her colleagues’ eyes.
