Waiter Gets $1,000 Tip, But You Won't Believe What He Did Next

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoodAmazingCrazzzzy

server spread out 1000 dollar tip to co workers

A restaurant patron dining at The Ginger Man in Albany, New York did something amazing on his birthday…

As a present to himself, he left a $1,000 tip on a $100 bill.

That's incredible!!

Michael Shafts, the waiter who received the generous tip, said:

"It was surreal. I was shaking. I couldn't feel my legs."

Clearly, they were amped up about the tip.

The diner wrote on the receipt that the waiter should "pay it forward," and that's exactly what he did!

The next time he came into work, he had envelopes of money for every staff member that was there with him!

He literally paid it forward, sharing his tip with everyone! Incredible!

Check out the video (below) to learn a little more about this amazing story.

    Someone failed at math, it should read 1,113.89 not 1130.89 cuz then the tip would be 1,017 dollars not 1,000! Oh well lol

    Great story, but who spends 113$ in a diner for 2 people?
