Some Tipped Over Stories


East Peoria

Waited on a nice couple yesterday that I have waited on the in the past. They tipped me over, more than 100% of the bill. Sometimes in my vocation appreciation is few and far between; this sort of kindness IS appreciated! Thank you so much for your kindness and God Bless YOU!



This very nice family came in during our rush and left a wonderful note thanking me for my service as well as wishing me a happy holiday season. They also left a $10 tip on a bill that was only $13 feeling very blessed!



I have heard about on WCIC, and I never expected it to happen to me. However, tonight was a very hectic night at the Italian restaurant that I work, and a very nice lady tipped me $25 on $81! I am very grateful to this woman as well as God for showing me little signs that He is listening.



A nice young couple came in with their beautiful baby girl who was as good as gold and was as precious as the day is long. I had one other table besides the young couple so as I went back and forth. I was making small talk with them about their baby. She shared a story with me about how fast she is growing and I told them to enjoy the time while she is little because it just doesn't last! After getting everything packed up, the young man sat down and filled out the credit card slip then grabbed their belongings, wished me well, and were on there way. As I cleaned the table and went to put the receipt in the drawer, I glanced down and saw the amount of the tip along with "You have been tipped over!" This gesture made my day! I can't wait to pay it forward.



A couple and their kids came in for dinner. The mother ordered pancakes for their boys. The youngest had to have whipped cream for his pancakes, so I brought out the whole bottle for them - why not?! :) Sorry, mom! They were very easy going and great to talk to. When they left, I saw I had been over tipped. It made me smile and warmed my heart that they felt I deserved to be "tipped over." I have never heard of this and definitely will be passing it forward. I hope this family has a wonderful Christmas!

The total bill coming to $38. They charged the bill and left a note which stated Merry Christmas, along with two twenty-dollar bills. It was such a nice surprise, and the fact that they were terribly nice topped it off!!!



I just got tipped $50 on a $15 check! I cannot say I'm not blessed!



The last decade has been one financially rough, uphill road. Just as one rough section is cleared, something else takes its place. Last night that "something else" came along. This brought on dejected thoughts like, "This is never going to end." At lunch, "Been Tipped Over" came to mind even though I hadn't heard it on WCIC today. I've thought of it before but never followed through. Today I followed through, nearly doubling the amount of the check. I don't know what impact it will have on the server, but it sure helped my state of mind.



A gentlemen and his two children came in and left a $35 tip!!! It definitely made my night! Thanks!!!



I was working a lunch shift when this wonderful family came in for their daughter's birthday with a larger group. They were great and I had waited on them before. Their check I said, "You have been tipped over!!"
