Once upon a time I worked as a server and while I thought I had a great personality and knew how to interact with patrons my supervisor at Shari's didn't agree. She apparently thought that I was having too much fun at work and that I didn't take my job seriously. Needless to say that job didn't last long. I remember two things from that job

1. Misery loves company

2. The overwhelming desire for a customer to leave a good tip.

While I never got an impressive tip serving, I have heard great stories of celebrities leaving huge tips. Here are some of my favorites stories compliments of people.com

"Donnie Wahlberg the Blue Bloods star dined at a Marshland restaurant location in Plymouth, Massachusetts and left his server, Denise Andrews, a $2,020 tip on a $35.27 bill."

"50 Cent the rapper joined Instagram influencer Jay Mazini to surprise Burger King workers in Queens, New York, with more than $30,000 cash in tips."

"The Catfish host surprised a pregnant waitress with a very generous and thoughtful tip that nearly brought her to tears. Nev Shulman left $926 when he found out that the servers due date was on his birthday 9/26/"

"Shortly after the “Adore You” singer was spotted on vacation in Anguilla with longtime pal James Corden and Adele, an employee at a local restaurant shared that Harry Styles left a $2,020 tip on a $472.50 bill after picking up the check."

These are all great stories but not as awesome as this one that involves some everyday Idaho folks, According to ktvb:

"Michael and Kelly Wolsten were dining at Pho Le 1 in Coeur d'Alene when they struck up a conversation with the woman serving them. The waitress told them that she was currently working three jobs to support her children, ages 5 and 4."

The couple jumped into action and told her story via a facebook post, before too long a bunch of friends had pitched to give the server a $2400 tip.
