In the history of strangest tips, a waitress from Oregon has to be on top of the list, since she received drugs instead of money.
An unnamed waitress was working her shift at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse in Seaside, Oregon, when her night turned into an action-comedy screenplay. 40 year old Ryan Bensen and 37 year old Erica Manley attended the restaurant and paid with a gift card for their dinner. However, they couldn’t tip the waitress with a gift card and since they didn’t have any actual money, they gave her something else – an envelope with a question mark on it. When the waitress opened the envelope, she couldn’t believe her eyes – the couple had tipped her with an envelope full of crystalized drugs. Nevertheless, the waitress was able to remain calm and call the police. When police officers arrived, Manley and Bensen were still at the restaurant.
Apart from getting arrested for possession of illegal substances, they were also charged for turning their hotel room at the Holiday Inn Express into a drug lab.
