$446 Waitress Tip On $6 Bill at Indianapolis RestaurantBy Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on May 19, 2013 in Amazing, Business, Food, Lifestyle •
For a little less than a $6 bill, a waitress received $446 tip at the Steak ‘n Shake restaurant in Indianapolis on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.
Cece Bruce was “amazed” that one of her regular customers, whom they call Miss Jo, handed her the huge tip. According to Bruce, Miss Jo‘s bill is only worth $5.97. Bruce explained that previously, the usual tip she received from Miss Jo is half of her bill.
Bruce is reportedly a full-time student at the Martin University and has been working in the restaurant chain for two years. She said that what happened “restores your faith in humanity, makes you trust people, and shows you can never judge a book by its cover. You’ve got to treat everybody the same. I try to be friendly to everyone.”
In an interview with TODAY.com, Bruce said that Miss Jo “always tips me 50 percent of her bill, but her bill is usually only $5 and she leaves a $5 tip. She’s a very nice lady.” Bruce tried to return the tip, but the customer insisted on giving her the money.
The Steak ‘n Shake manager, Greer Gooley explained that he “was in the back on a food order, and Miss Jo wrote out the bill and then she ran out the door really quick. (Bruce) ran into the parking lot to thank her, and she just told her to take it and then spun off. (Bruce) is extremely deserving of that money. She works hard, and she will come in whenever you need her. She has more regulars than any of our other servers.”
