$278.55 Bill and a $2,000 Tip

On 28 April 2015, Loran Lopez, a 19-year-old student at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith, got the tip of a lifetime at her part-time job as a waitress at Logan’s Roadhouse in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The regular customer, who was with a friend, ran up a $278.55 bill and added a $2,000 tip. “I couldn’t talk for a good two minutes,” Ms. Lopez said. “I sat there and stared at it. I couldn’t believe what happened.” About the regular customer, Ms. Lopez said, “I’ve seen her in there before, but I’ve never spoken to her. I’ve always heard about her tipping well, but I’ve never experienced it myself until this time.” The Good Samaritan wishes to remain anonymous. “I thanked her a million times,” Ms. Lopez, who also hugged her, said. “She said, ‘I know I don’t have to tip; there’s no gun pointing at my head — it’s something that I want to do for people.’ She used to be a waitress, too, so she just likes to give back.” Ms. Lopez added, “She thinks waitresses deserve more than what they’re getting. She’s so generous.” Ms. Lopez plans to use the money to pay college expenses: “I’m very grateful for what she did. I didn’t expect it at all.”
