There’s one lucky Indiana waitress walking around with full pockets thanks to a healthy tip left on a relatively small food bill.
The Steak ‘n Shake waitress working in Indianapolis got the surprise of her life when a diner left a 7,433% tip! That’s $446!
She tells WTHR-TV that it wasn’t some superstar big-spender like Peyton Manning or Indi TV personality Lisa Lee who dropped the huge tip. Instead, it was one of her regular customers who wanted to simply brighten her day.
“I was having a hard time at another table, but kept smiling and going on,” she recalls.
When the waitress looked at the check, she thought she saw a $46 tip and even then she was blown away, because the bill that was only $5.97, but then she took another gander she couldn’t believe her eyes.
“When I looked again, I said ‘Oh my gosh Miss Jo, I’m not taking that!’” the waitress says about seeing the mammoth $446 tip. “And she said, ‘Yes, you’re taking it’ and I said no and she said ‘You need to take it’.”
