It's no secret that the restaurant industry was hit incredibly hard by the pandemic. Plenty of places were forced to close their doors, and for those that did remain open, the struggle has been all too real. That's why it's even more important to be kind and respectful to servers these days, especially when it comes to acknowledging their hard work. Translation: tip your server well!
And if there was ever any doubt that you can make someone's day by going above and beyond in the tip department (if you're able), a new TikTok video shared by @wherearewenowcouple confirms it. They managed to capture a server's reaction to receiving an unexpected $100 tip, and it just might make you tear up.
OMG. "I just wanted to show there is still goodness in this world, and I paid it forward when my check came." Isn't that the kindness reminder we all need? Seeing how much finding that large tip meant to her is enough to make anyone's heart melt. What a sweetheart she is.
Not surprisingly, TikTok users are huge fans of this video. @Eya said, "Bless her heart ❤️. Appreciation goes a hell of a long way 👍🏻." It really does. And we need to remember that. Another commenter, @Warren added, "Small things to some are major to others🥰. So nice to see." @Laird chimed in with, "She looks like a very special woman. I love that she was overwhelmed in joy." And @kchurchy85 made a great point, saying, "If you have the means to do so, a tip can make an impact on someone’s life." Food for thought.

It was so wonderful to see this woman's day made. Let's all keep her reaction in mind the next time we're trying to decide how much extra to leave on the bill. Even a few additional dollars just might let someone know that they matter.
