Yep. Our faces are soaked after watching this video!
Ellen DeGeneres might have met her match in kindness this week when she had a waitress on her show who made headlines with her generosity!
Sarah Hoildahl was serving tables at a Ruby Tuesday in Concord, New Hampshire when two National Guard members sat in her section for lunch.
The 21-year-old single mother overheard the two female soldiers discussing their furloughs and not being paid due to the government shutdown. So she decided that their meal would be on her!
When Sarah went to drop off the bill, she instead handed them a note that read:
"Thanks to the government shutdown the people like you that protect this country are not getting paid, however I still am. Lunch is on me thank you for serving ladies! Have a good day!"
And it turns out, Sarah only made $8 in tips on that slow shift!
Well, after Ellen heard about her story, she had to have Sarah on to tell her how caring a person she was! Oh, and to give her a little something else!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing tip Ellen gave this big-hearted waitress (above)!
Ah! We LOVE stories that make us laugh and cry at the same time!
