- A Western Cape waitress was left speechless after receiving a tip equal to the bill after serving a customer
- A post was uploaded to Facebook and eventually shared to the #ImStaying group
- The comment section was full of gratitude and excitement as stayers are overjoyed by this random act of kindness
A tip equal to the bill is what a Western Cape waitress recently received in a touching #ImStaying moment. Facebook user Michelle Williams shared Valme Jooste's original post to the Facebook group #ImStaying.
An image was attached with a caption, the image shows a bill of R820. The diners added an extra R820 to the tip section of the bill with the total being R1 640. They drew a smiley face and hashtagged ImStaying.
"After going through a very difficult time and barely surviving all Covid threw at us, there is a light in the tunnel! Receiving a bill back from guests with this message and gesture on gives us hope to carry on. And made a waitress very very happy. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!" read the post.
Facebook users on the #ImStaying group were absolutely gobsmacked at this wonderful deed. Here's what some stayers had to say:
Monica Bruce-Webster wrote:
"That's nice. Did not know there is still people that can tip like that?! Others do not even have an income. Well done if you could."
Gracak Gracak Navashi said:
"Thanks to whoever."
Siweh Buh Nzimande commented:
"I'm so touched, will definitely also pay it forward."
Jocelyn Appenah added:
"Thank you for your generosity. God bless always."
