|How would you feel if you received a $5,000 tip on a $27 bill? Pretty great probably. One generous couple donated this money to a waiter in need at a Houston restaurant. I thought you’d like to know more about this amazing act of kindness!|
“Buy a nice car,” said the generous couple, who recently left a $5,000 tip on a $27 bill for a waiter of a Houston restaurant.
Greg Rubar has worked as a waiter at D’Amico’s in Rice Village of Houston for 16 years. In that time, Rubar has received plenty of large tips, but recently, he said a pair of regulars gave him an envelope with $5,000 cash.
“He said, ‘We’re still going to come in, but we’re not going to tip you for a while,’” of the man who donated the gift. “He said this is for you to go and buy a nice car.”
Rubar lost his car in a severe storm recently. He had been taking cabs and buses to get to work.
Brina D’Amico Donaldson, a co-owner of the restaurant, said she was surprised by the amount of money he was given.
“It was a bit shocking to hear that. I was like, maybe $500, but $5,000 is quite a generous tip,” said D’Amico Donaldson.
She said it couldn’t have happened to a better person.
“He’s an incredibly hard worker. He would work every shift if we would let him,” she added.
Rubar still has a hard time believing it happened.
“People can be generous. They told me I deserved it,” said Rubar. “It’s overwhelming to me.”
Rubar said he plans to use the tip to buy a vehicle.
