A Waiter Receives A Tip But This One Takes The Cake
Michael Shafts, a New Yorker working at The Ginger Man in Albany was shocked when he looked at the number of digits on the tip. He waited on the couple who had been celebrating the husband’s 47th birthday. On the check they wrote, ‘My birthday present to me. Pay it forward!’ along with a $1,000 tip. The total bill was only $114.
Michael, after receiving the generous tip paid it forward by splitting more than half of it with his coworkers. This couple would be remembered since it was the largest tip the restaurant has ever received.
