Kasey Simmons ,a 32-year-old waiter was shocked when an unknown customer who ordered the cheapest thing on the menu,left a $500 tip for him.
A day earlier,Simmons was buying groceries at his local market when he noticed an older woman in the checkout line, obviously anguished.He watched as other customers passed her by, but decided to approach her. Before long, they were talking.
She didn’t tell him what was wrong, but her mood seemed to rise and he paid her $17 grocery bill despite her objection.
“It was only $17, but it’s not about the money,” he said. “It’s about showing someone you care.”
“On one of the most depressing days of the year … you made my mother’s day wonderful,” the note said. “You insisted on paying. Told her she is a very beautiful woman. I have not seen this woman smile this much since dad died.”
