Clark will go on maternity leave in early January, and with her husband not working, she says the money is much needed.
...
The customer that left the tip, who is also pregnant, left a note on the receipt saying, “This is God’s money – He gave it to us so we could give it to you. God bless.”

“I had talked to her in the past about my fiancé being injured and him being out of work, and me taking leave, and I think it was just a really amazing token of generosity,” Clark said.

The guy who dumps 100 dollar bills into salvation army pot, is back out again this year too. Last I saw, he donated almost 100k already.

Their are many great people out there, but negative news is what sells. The good stories get lost in the tsunami of bad news.

No ratings in happiness and joy. America wants misery, death and yelling. How else are they going to sell you gold and apocalypse survival rations if they can't convince you the world is literally ending every other day? >.>

That was kind. Most people aren't that nice in this world. I bet that pregnant woman had a huge smile on her face.

Most people are. But it doesn't fill a 24/7 news cycle.

So the good news is tossed aside while the bad news getting a standing ovation?


What if we lived in a world where good news was more appreciated than bad news?

That would rank right up there with a world where dolphins could fly.

I think this guy was really awesome for doing this. I've never been pregnant but I have been a waiter and I know for a fact that's not something I want to do while expecting. Good on this soon to be mother for working so hard and good on the customer for rewarding her strong efforts so generously.

I remember my friend giving a 100$ tip to a random waitress.

She didn't even do anything. What a piece of work she was.

But yeah, good for her and getting 900 and stuff The note was cringe though. God's money really

I always liked the story of a man dropping in ridiculously rare coins into the Salvation Army pot around the DC/VA/MD area. It taught me to appreciate what I had (or didn't have, in some cases). Acts of charity like that actually convinced me to be generous with my own time and money - and stories like these are exactly the kind I enjoy hearing.

The downside is that there are people who misunderstand "generosity" with "bragging about giving a homeless person something". I've known someone to have given a homeless woman a sandwich in exchange for letting them take a selfie with her and post it on his Facebook profile - sorry, while it's nice that the woman got a sandwich, dude didn't have to be a douche about it. Helping others is always important, but that's definitely not what "humble brag" means.

It's nice to know that there are others out there that are giving out to those who are in need. The waitress definitely needed something like this to come along. While the note may be a bit cringeworthy for the Atheists (like me), the thought was there either way.

It's not tossed aside. People just toss it aside themselves. Good news 24/7 do you know how boring and poor the ratings would be? People want to be scared, they want to get angry at something, because it keeps them busy sitting at home getting payed to do nothing.

I can go on but I'd probably sound like a stupid asshole.
