Tipped To Be A Good Day

, , , , , | Right | October 4, 2020

I have been having an awful day at work dealing with my manager’s endless yelling at me and my coworker calling out leaving me to close by myself. I have made no tips the entire day, and just as I’m about to start cleaning up, a woman walks in.

Customer: “Hey, do you think you have enough time for one more sandwich?”

Me: “Sure, I can do that for you. What would you like?”

I proceed to make her order and ring her up. Her total is about $6. She hands me $40.

Customer: “Here you go; keep the change.”

Me: “But… This is like $34 in tip! I think you handed me the wrong amount.”

Customer: “I have been a bartender for ten years and know that you live off of tips. You take that money and do something nice for yourself. Have a great night!”

I thanked her as I began to cry, and she just smiled and walked out. Wherever she is, God bless her for being so amazing to me on such an awful day!
