I was at the end of a 12 hour shift yesterday and I was way past caring anymore. I felt good in the morning but the customers at our restaurant were BEYOND rude to all the servers pretty much all day. By the end of the day I was D-O-N-E.

It was my last table, and I pretty much just wanted to get out of there. I’m sure this old couple could see it all over my face. I took their order as quick as I could and tried not to sound grumpy. But I was sure my tip was being flushed down the drain (you’d be surprised at how big a difference being bright and bubbly can make).

But when I came back to the table after they left I found a $100 tip!! All they wrote on the check was “Merry Christmas!” I was blown away!! I can tell you I did NOT give them $100 service…

I guess some people still believe in the holiday spirit!

Anybody else encounter some holiday spirit this year?

I had a similar experience back in the day when I was a server. I got a big tip for mediocre service. It wasn't $100 but it was big. Nice surprise.

I just love hearing that type of story. It is a great story and it is the Christmas spirit working. Pu Ke Akua Mea 'Oe.
