Pretty cool. Love how they followed through when the complaint was made.
Have seen or hard of some pretty good ones ,where a customer made sure & went to the kitchen & gave lg. tips to cooks & kitchen help. was given a 100$ bill as the dishwasher in an Italian Restaurant in K.C.M.O. have been given 50's as a bar back or the runner in a kitchen,have seen bartenders & waitresses makes 500 to 1,ooo$ a day,then they give out 10% of that to their helpers.
My mother ran a bar for many yrs. & someone? paid her trailer off & also her utilities for many yrs.was a LOT of back room that happened there,so people paying tabs with cash & in 100's was common a few times a mo.
Was a story from here of a used car guy that used to give away a cpl. of cars every Christmas as a tip during the holidays:).
I found the link before of a man that used to routinely stop by bus stops,during the holidays in K.C.M.O. & give out cash or a used car:) Rick

So here's a mystery for the holiday season: someone is leaving enormous, four- and five-figure tips on small checks at restaurants all over the country. But who, and why?
The "who" is the person or persons who goes by the pseudonym "Tips for Jesus." As for why? Well, the name seems to say it all, as does their Instagram slogan: "Doing the Lords [sic] work, one tip at a time."
"Tipsforjesus" has been active since at least September. The tips range from $500 to $10,000, and are being left at a random assortment of restaurants from Michigan to Chicago to Los Angeles. According to The Daily Dot, the tips left total more than $54,000.
The person or persons responsible is also making sure that the tips get in the right hands. When a waiter at Legends of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., complained that the $10,000 tip hadn't been given to him, "tipsforjesus" took action.

“Notre Dame is stiffing you?” tipsforjesus replied.“Hmmm, let me make sure the charges went through since they claim they did not. If they're lying to you, I can talk to AMEX about it, then you should get a lawyer, and call the local paper and ESPN. What they're doing flys in the face of what Jesus would do.” The account later posted a photo of the cleared AMEX charges.
So, servers of the world, be generous to your patrons. You never know when one of them will drop a four-figure bounty in your lap

Lord, I don't know. Bless him or her. I love this story. My only prayer is that he/she wanders into my place and leaves me some of that Christmas cheer. May be only my kitchen, but I'll fix coffee, tea, lemonade, hot soup, all with a smile and a good attitude .... whatever makes 'em happy....'cause I know some unexpected but much needed money would sure as heck make ME happy :>)
