This waitress received a $2,000 tip on Mother’s Day from a kind customer
Brenda Pearson had been a stay-at-home mom for two years before she started working as a waitress at the 4 Star Diner in Roland, Oklahoma. On Mother’s Day, an act of kindness and generosity by a customer touched her heart and helped her with her struggling finances.
It was a regular day at the diner when a customer walked in and ordered one cheeseburger, Brenda recalls. When it was time to pay, he said he wanted to leave a surprise tip.
“The other customers were coming to pay out and he said $1000,” Pearson told 5 News. “I said what? Are you serious? He said yes. I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t hardly breathe. It took my breath away.”
And the act of kindness didn’t end there. He came back for dessert an hour later and left another $1,000 tip. The generous customer turned out to be a truck driver named David Platt.
“It was late and there wasn’t really anybody around and so I got talking to her a little bit,” David said. “We talked about the Lord and about her life and her children. I got the impression that she was having a hard time of it, so I thought I’d just help her out a little bit.”
With people like David around, the world indeed becomes a beautiful place to live in!
