Three waitresses at a restaurant in Caledonia, Illinois found themselves with an unexpected $15,000 tip from a customer.
The anonymous tipper decided to leave Amber Kariolich, Amy Sabani and Sarah Seckinger $5k each on top of her food bill after she overheard them discussing how hard it is to pay their bills and school expenses with their regular earnings.
When the three girls tried to refuse the money she insisted: "I want you girls to take these to help with school and everything else in life," the woman reportedly said.
We've all been there, working a service job in a pub or a cafe - or, er, in my case a supermarket - but the most we've ever been tipped was a £1 from an older man who thought we looked "rather lovely" in our [insert popular supermarket chain here] uniform. *Shudders*.
