Server gets $446 tip on $6 bill. Are we sure this was a restaurant?
Anyone who's ever worked in the restaurant industry can understand the greatness of this story. Not only does serving people require patience, calmness and heavy amounts of drugs, most often the end result leaves you disappointed and wanting more. That's not the case for CeCe Bruce. This week, when CeCe went in for work at Steak n' Shake in Indianapolis, she never thought she'd be walking away with extra spending money.
Upon seeing that a table was giving CeCe a particularly hard time that morning, a regular customer left an abnormally large tip: $446 on a $6 bill to be exact.
"At first I thought, '$46?' And I said, 'Miss Jo, that's really generous!'"
But Miss Jo had actually left her a far bigger tip."When I looked again, I said 'Oh my gosh Miss Jo, I'm not taking that!' And she said, 'Yes, you're taking it' and I said no and she said 'You need to take it'," CeCe said.
CeCe says she's going to pay her bills and pay them on time. It's good to see that CeCe isn't like every other waiter or waitress out there who takes their tip money and spends it on booze right after getting off.
