November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Just Made Her (Mother’s) Day

| Milford, CT, USA | Awesome Customers, Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Money

(I am a hostess, and this story happens the Friday before Mother’s Day. I am standing at the register at the entrance to the restaurant when a gentleman in his early 40s who had been dining alone approaches me.)

Customer: “Do I pay up here?”

Me: “Oh! No, sir, you pay with your waitress. Let me grab her for you.”

(I go to the back and bring the waitress up to the front with me.)

Customer: *to waitress* “So, my bill was $18?”

Waitress: “Yes. ”

Customer: “Do you have a family?”

Waitress: “Uh… yes.”

Customer: “You have kids?”

Waitress: “Yes.”

Customer: “Well, then. This is for my check.” *hands coworker a $20 bill* “… and this is for you.” *hands coworker a $50 bill* “Happy Mother’s Day!”

(At this point, the customer leaves before the waitress can even say ‘thank you.’)

Waitress: *to me* “I think I’m gonna cry.”
