Customer Leaves Irish Waiter $750 Tip To Fly His New Family Home For Christmas
November 23, 2016
An Irish waiter working in an American restaurant got an early Christmas gift when a customer tipped him $750 to bring his new family home for the holidays.
22 year-old Ben Millar works in a restaurant in Houston, Texas. He had been planning on a trip home to Ireland once his son is born and had been sharing his story with a customer.
“The customer informed Ben that he had just been in Ireland. Ben, jokingly said, ‘Wow, I wish I could go back there for a weekend and visit my family’, thinking nothing of it.”
But when he went to collect the bill he was shocked to discover that the customer had left him a $750 tip, along with a hand-written note which read: “Hopefully, this can get you back to Ireland for the holidays.”
The customer, whose name is Jeffrey, left so fast that Ben never got the chance to thank him for his kind-hearted gesture. Ben hopes that by sharing the story, Jeffrey will see how much his generosity meant to his family.
