On Saturday, a waitress at a Paarl pub received a massive tip - but, her luck was short lived with the patron's wife requesting a 'refund'.
A local waitress thought she struck gold when a generous man left her a tip of thousands of rands - until his wife showed up the next day.
On Wednesday, Netwerk24 reported a waitress at Breezy Hill received a tip close to R20 000 when a patron paid his bill of R379.
The report stated the man's order consisted of drinks - including whiskey, brandy and Jägermeister. The tip he left the waitress was a staggering R19 621, which was charged to his credit card.
Briefly.co.za learned the waitress told the news outlet the man initially wanted to pay her R1m. She said she made sure the man was not drunk and was fully aware of the large tip he left her.
However, her luck was short lived when the man's wife turned up the following day, requesting a refund.
The generous tipper's spouse spoke to the pub's owner, Andy Parr, and asked for the money to be refunded.
According to News24, Parr was able to reimburse the wife because the money had not yet reached his account. She ended up leaving the waitress a R100 tip.
