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.
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!
