Some Tipped Over Stories

Ginny

Springfield

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."

I deliverd a pizza to a customer and her total was $20. She tipped me $20!

Later on that night, I was shopping and the customer ahead of me happened to be short on their payment. I was able to help pay for her stuff as well. I am thankful and appreciative!

Waited on a table today. The bill was $39 and they tipped me $30! It made my day. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. It’s nice to see someone appreciate what servers do.

Well it started out as just another day at work. I had finally got my first table. After they were done, I gave them their check told them that it was no rush, and to have a good night. I went back to do more work and came back to clean the table after they had left and found $30.00 on my table. I asked my boss if they had paid for their food because I didn’t want to take it in case if was for the check. She said they had paid. I was like, "Wow, that was so nice of them." Something I definitely was not expecting at all. It really made my day!

Waited on a table today. The bill was $39 and they tipped me $30! It made my day. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. It’s nice to see someone appreciate what servers do.I was having a bit of a rough morning just feeling not as close to God as I want to be, and I was very tired this morning. I felt like I wasn’t being attentive enough to my guests, and so it was a huge shock seeing this. I was praying all morning, trying to fill my void and to just be a greater version of myself today, but I didn’t expect it at all! I didn’t know about this site 'til they put it on the receipt. They left before I could say thank you.

I had no idea this was a thing. I went to my table to start bussing it, and when I checked the book I did not see any cash at first. All I saw was that something was written on the back of my slip. My first thought was, "Oh great, they thought I suck and want me to go some site where they bash servers." Then, I then found the $50 they left me folded up! It was one of my first tables of the night and made the rest of my night go amazing! I wish I could thank them in person. They have no idea how much their generosity has helped my family. I will definitely be paying it forward. Thank you again!

I am a serve at a chain Italian restaurant. It was a slow night, and I was stressing over how I was going to pay my utility bill. I knew I needed to make at least $45 in order to do so and get food for the night. A gentleman came in and got soup (no salad) and a dessert at the end. He left me about 50%. It wasn’t much, but it was greatly appreciated! I needed it. God works in mysterious ways. Thank you to the kind man who did this! God bless!

I was working at Huddle House on Thanksgivig Day and was tipped over by a very nice couple. I give thanks for all I am blessed with!

Morgan

Peoria

I have waitressed for about 6 years now, trying to put myself through nurse practitioner school. I was having a stressful week, with finals, finances, and everything in between. I love going to work because I can try to forget everything and just spend time with my quests. Today, 3 hilarious, lovely, kind ladies sat at my table. I was enjoying their company as they enjoyed my service. They brightened my week, expressing their gratitude and sharing how wonderful I was. Together, they tipped me around $50 on a bill that was around $60. I am so grateful, and feel so blessed!

East Peoria

I delivered a floral arrangement to a young lady this morning. After I handed the flowers to her, she handed me what appeared to be an unopen drinking straw. She said there was money there. When I returned to the store, I noticed a note was rubber banded around the straw. I opened the paper wrapping around the straw to see there was a tightly rolled $20 bill inside the straw. The note wrapped around the straw said, "Go to beentippedover.com." That was an awesome tip; thank you! Since it is the season of giving, I will match the $20 tip and donate it to the Children's Hospital of Illinois. Best wishes for a Happy Holiday season!
