That person you waited on felt God nudge them to leave a larger-than-usual tip.

You’re an important part of this community. You make life a little better and a little brighter for the people you serve every day. And while you probably run across the occasional “hard to please” customer, your service IS appreciated. Thank you for doing what you do!

Hope being “Tipped Over” brightened your day a bit!



It’s simple. Just look for any opportunity to show love to those who serve us!

Leave a larger-than-usual tip. (You decide how much. Maybe it’s 25%, or maybe it’s 70%. Something that fits your budget.)

On the receipt, write:

"You've been tipped over! Check out beentippedover.com"

When we serve or give just to make someone’s life a little better – with no agenda but authentic love – the heart of Jesus is expressed.



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!!!!


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.


It's great to see so many giving back. I work in a job where we are not allowed to take tips. I intereact with customers on a daily basis. I am a clerk at a local gas station. If you want to brighten someones day and can not give a tip, just remember a thank you or a pleasent hello would be great. Thank you so much.
