Here are some of the stories we've heard from the people who have been Tipped Over by your generosity.

Some Tipped Over Stories



I started serving a month ago to help pay my student loans down quicker. It was a learning curve for me since I had never served before this job - which is just a second part time job. It was a slower night and this couple tipped me and told me to check out this site as they were leaving. I looked it up and was almost moved to tears. I couldn’t believe it. Little did they (or even I) know much I actually needed this pick me up. It was so rewarding,  and I appreciated receiving this. Thank you again!



I worked the lunch shift today at Olive Garden. I had 2 ladies at my table. They were nice and easy to take care of which is always a plus. They left me a note after they left that told me I was over tipped and to visit this site. They gave me an amazing tip that made my day. ( It was 25 on a 37.38) I love serving people like this because they understand that our tips is how we make money. So I just want to say thank you to those ladies, and it was my pleasure serving you both today.



Had a family come in the restuarant where I work; they remembered my service from a previous visit and requested me again. I did not remember and apologized, never to forget again. We talked about my upcoming vacation. They paid their bill with gift cards, leaving a $2.60 balance, which they used a credit card for. While leaving they wished me a great vacation. A few minutes later, I picked up the face down reciept from their table. I saw that they had left me a $100.00 dollar tip with the words " you have been tipped over."



I had a very nice couple come into my restaurant on March 19th. They were enjoying a complimentary dinner. They were easy going and very polite to me the entire time I served them. They gave me a very generous tip and because of them I will be able to catch up on a couple of bills . I felt that I should share this story because this type of thing doesn't happen very often where I'm from and I really appreciate it. You guys really made my night, thank you so much!!!



Today at work I was what servers refer to as “double say”, meaning I sat two tables at the same time. Normally, this isn’t anything I couldn’t handle, but these tables were both ten tops, so I was a bit stressed trying to figure out how to provide great service to my new ten tops and my other tables I already Had. The table that “tipped me over” were the sweetest people I had the pleasure of serving all day. Today was a tough day to start, because my Army husband had left early this morning for a move to Alabama, and I had to stay here in Illinois to finish school. I can be certain that God brought these amazing customers to my table to remind me that everything is going to be alright. If the customers ever get the chance to read this, thank you for making my day, and for reminding me to turn to God during these hard times. It is not the money that mattered to me, but the small reminder that there are good, godly people in the world. May God bless you all and your family. Thank you again!!!!



I took a delivery to a regular today, and she left me a very very generous tip! I was shocked. She also wrote down the link to this website and informed me that I was tipped over! Needless to say it was a great way to flip the script on a rainy Monday.



I work ovens at a pizza place so I only make tips off of pick-up orders. I never go into work expecting tips because some days I simply do not make any. Today a woman came to pick up a few pizzas and left me and the other kitchen worker 30%! It was a nice surprise considering I am a college student. Made my day!


Martha's Vineyard, MA

Today was my second day of training at a busy seafood restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard. It’s called The Seafood Shanty in Edgartown, and I was taking a few tables by myself already. I had a table of 4 sit down, and they were really great and we had good conversation but I wasn’t expecting what I was saw when I opened the book as they left. They tipped me over 70% and I was so overwhelmed with gratitude. I was luckily able to catch them as they were leaving and give everyone hugs, but it made me feel really great since it was only my second day training. The girl who was training me also let me keep the tip which made it that much better. Faith in humanity is restored.



The couple that over tipped me were so sweet to me! And she was ready to order before her husband even came to the restaurant, but the food came up when he got there. They were so sweet to me! And I enjoyed sereving them and to be over tipped was the icing on the cake!



I am a hairstylist, and we make a baseline wage where i work so tips are very much an essential part of our income. There have been many times I've "Been Tipped Over," but one instance stands out to me and brought me to tears. Last Christmas, a kind man paid with a $100 bill and left saying, "Keep the change merry christmas."
