Waitress left ‘shaking’ after customer leaves her enormous £1,500 tip

A waitress started “shaking” after realising that a kind stranger had left her an enormous Christmas tip of £1,500.

Sarrah, 21, from the United States, was shocked when she spotted that the $693.36 (£508) bill was topped up with a huge $2,020 (£1,481) tip on top.

She shared a snap of the surprising gift on Twitter.

Sarrah wrote: “I’m literally shaking.”

Since then, the post has racked up more than 260,000 likes – and others were blown away by the generous tip too.

One person said: “Where do I need work for this?”

While another added: “AS you DESERVE queen.”

However, some people questioned if the receipt was real after all.

One person said: “Nah you got a 20 dollar tip and wrote the rest in. You wrote the 2’s different.”

While another commented: “No signature means they’ll probably do a charge back in your restaurant or it was a stolen credit card to begin with.

“Sorry to rain on your parade but if I was your manager I wouldn’t accept this and I was a GM for four years.”

Sarrah followed up her tweet with another and said: “Why are people so concerned with my blessing of a tip.

“Yes it was real.

“Yes the tip went though.

“Yes I’m getting the money.

“Yes I’m aware what taxes are.”

Another person pointed out that the tipper had written on the customer copy of the receipt, which is usually taken home and not processed.

One social media user said: “It's a customer copy. No you aren't.”

Sarrah replied and said: “I know it’s a ‘customer copy’ but it’s legit i didn’t write this in and risk my job for a stupid tweet lol.”

And, another restaurant worker supported her story and said: “People accidentally sign the customer copy EVERYYYY DAY. We still accept them that means nothing to us lol."
