He Left A Massive Tip For Waitress, The Reason Why Sent Shivers Down My Spine…
Now, Sean has kids of his own -- and he recently had a profound experience.
"Tonight as my son and I sat at this little crappy Chinese joint we love, there was a new waitress. She stuck out like a sore thumb. The owners are Chinese. The workers are Chinese. And this little white waitress."
The waitress reminded Sean of his own mother.
"She was absolutely fantastic and kept complimenting my son on his manners. We ate our dinner. Over small talk and water refills, I got the sense that this single mom didn't want to be there, but had to be there and she was doing her best to smile. It tore my heart out. I thought of my mom, and I saw the same hustle in this woman that I saw in my mom. A single mom. Maybe by choice. Maybe not. But working on a Wednesday night to ensure she can put food on the table and shoes on the kids feet. Not for opulence. Not for status. But to live."
Sean noticed how hard she was working.
"I empathized for her. I felt her pain. I kept thinking of my mom and how difficult it is for a single woman to go from home maker, to bread winner."
That's when Sean decided to do something to show the waitress how much he respects her efforts.
The idea came to him while they were eating, and he wanted to make sure to make the waitress smile before they left.
He left her a massive tip on their bill.
As you can see, this is far more than the average for a waitress -- but Sean felt like it was a small price to pay to honor this hard-working woman.
