A waitress who works at a restaurant in Arkansas, America, has received a tip she will never forget.
Maria Elena Barragan often served a couple, David and Shelia Harrison, who were regulars at the restaurant she worked at.
The couple asked her to sit down with them after she served them, NWA Democrat-Gazette reported.
At first Barragan thought she had done something wrong, but then she was handed a gift bag with the car's keys inside.
The Harrisons gifted the waitress a 2019 Buick Encore costing an estimated $24,000, which is more than R360 000.
The story touched the hearts of tweeps, who applauded the couple for giving Barragan the car.
Kirt Sloan, who goes by the Twitter handle @KirtSloan, commented: "Awesome people!! All the way around."
