A waitress was working the overnight shift at a Waffle House in Raleigh, N.C. on Mother’s Day when she served a random business man at 3am. The man, who only orders a patty melt, tells the waitress that he is going to “bless her.” 

That’s when he did the unthinkable, he left her a $1,500 tip, $1K for her tells and $500 to “a haggard-looking woman at a table nearby,” 

He then got into the cab and left telling the waitress, “You  have a good spirit.” 

You’re never going to believe what happened next…

Shaina Brown, the woman who received the generous tip is a single mother of three who has worked at Waffle House for seven years, in addition to another job, was forced to return the $1,000. 

Apparently, company policy dictates that all large tips be refunded to patrons and “generous tippers are asked to tip agin by cash or check” in case the customer decided to dispute the tip later or ask for a refund. 

“I feel like the stole from me,” Brown told the Charlotte Observer.

Fortunately, they were abler to rack down the business man, who said he’d write her a check.
