During the Holidays, These Food Servers were Given Large Amount of Tips by Good-Natured Customers


Many servers in restaurants have been lucky to receive huge tips from generous customers during the holidays. This is a story of 4 different servers from various states in the U.S. and how they were gifted with a large amount of tips by kind-hearted customers they have served.

Waitresses Rachel, Rosa, Roxana, and Ashley had the best of the holiday season when they were given unexpected surprises.

  1. Rachel Barney from Cracker Barrel, San Antonio – $1,300 tip.

Celebrating the annual tradition called “Christmas Tip the Waitress,” Kevin Nies and his wife planned the occasion with their group of friends to “change someone’s life for a day.”

“Waitress Rachel is a single mother of 2 teenagers with no family in Texas,” Kevin shared.

At the celebration, more than 20 people attended the occasion and contributed a total of $1,300 on a $270 bill. Kevin shared a video of the event on his social media page, hoping that other kind-hearted individuals would do the same.
