$10,000 tip on $26


From the AP wire:
HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The regular customer eating dinner the end of the bar always tipped well — $15 or so on $30 tabs. The $100 tip two weeks ago was a nice surprise, but the amount he left bartender Cindy Kienow this week left her stunned.

On the check, the tip read: $10,000.

"I couldn't move," said Kienow, who tends bar at Applebee's. "I didn't know what to say. He said, 'This will buy you something kind of nice, huh?' And I said, 'Yeah, it will."'

We can all wish, can't we?

Wow, what a story. It makes me wish I sometimes worked for tips!

Nice Aussie Rules football, by the way!

One of my best friends just won $10, 000 about two weeks ago (Canadian, so like $1 million American, lol) And everywhere she went she left at least a $60 tip. Let me tell you the waitresses were pretty happy at her. And they deserve it!
