Waffle House denies NC waitress a $1,000 tip from 'angel'Submitted by meekandmild on Tue, 06/10/2014 - 09:55
RALEIGH - Shaina Brown works the late shift at Waffle House, serving cups of second-wind coffee to wobbly diners with butane breath.
After seven years, she’s learned to coax a good tip with a smile and quick refill. Even the barroom crowd will throw her $5 extra.
But nothing short of greasy spoon magic can explain what happened at 3 a.m. on Mother’s Day, when a patron eating a Texas bacon patty melt called Brown over and said, “I’m going to bless you tonight.”
He paid his bill with a credit card and wrote $1,500 on the tip line, asking Brown to share $500 with a haggard-looking woman at a table nearby.
