According to CNN, the owner of the restaurant, David Fernandez, had been looking forward to reopening the restaurant and the help could have not come at a better time.

The customer, at Frog and The Bull restaurant in Texas, US, ordered meals that added up to about R6 300 but then asked that he be double charged.

The waiter, 18-year-old Josh Pikoff, was stunned by the request and asked his boss Fernandez to help him understand.

The eatery did exactly as the customer had ordered but after that, he added another tip for the waiter and R19 000 for the restaurant.

His total bill came at R36 000 which shocked the employee wondering why he was handing out all that cash for meals adding up to only R6 200.

"I was really shocked at first because I didn't understand why he was giving it to me, but he said that he was extremely grateful that we were open and putting ourselves at risk to serve the community," Pikoff told CNN.

Fernandez said it was extremely generous what the customer had done and he was even left speechless.

"I did not really know what to say, It was extremely generous and I was just so wowed by it," Fernandez said.

CNN reports the restaurant was still months old when the pandemic hit the world and they had to convert it into a delivery spot.

The owner had to lay off some of the employees as it got difficult to pay everyone due to the burden that came with the pandemic.
