- A waitress who has been identified as Ayanda was given a whopping R18 000 tip by a patron who believes in her dreams
- Ayanda now plans on completing her matric by taking night classes at a school in Alexandria
- She will then pursue her dream of becoming a paramedic
A kind patron, who wants to remain anonymous, was having a night out with her friends when she decided to bless their Beerhouse waitress.
According to the restaurant, when the patron paid her R1 320 bill, she rounded the amount off to R20 000 - meaning she left Ayanda a massive R18 680 tip.
The surprised waitress immediately called management to get the patron to change her mind but the woman was not having any of it.
“I have no want to reverse this, no second thoughts about it and I was of sound mind when deciding to leave this tip,” the patron said to Beerhouse owner Randolf Jorberg in a private WhatsApp message.
The patron was impressed by Ayanda's service and felt she deserved every cent of the big tip.
Briefly.co.za reached out to Beerhouse's marketing manager, Janine van Wulven, for a comment and learned that Ayanda is planning on using the money to complete matric and follow her dreams.
According to the restaurant's statement, Ayanda had to drop out of school because of financial constraints. Her mother worked all the time and she could not get to school.
However, the plan is now to use the money towards her education. Beerhouse also shared a screenshot of WhatsApp messages between Ayanda and the kind patron on their website.
In the messages, the patron encourages Ayanda to chase her dreams and use the money for good.
