A waitress stuck working at the 4 Star Diner in Roland, Oklahoma started talking to a customer, a truck driver from Mississippi, and he ended up leaving her the best tip of her life. Brenda Pearson put together a to-go order for trucker David Platt, and when he came to pay out his check, he told her he wanted to leave $1,000 tip.
Pearson was shocked, asked if he was serious and he assured her he was, which she says “took her breath away.” Platt says he felt like helping her out after talking to her for a while about her family, so he did. And as if that’s not amazing enough, he returned to the diner about an hour later for pie and he left her another $1,000 tip!
"Money is just paper or numbers on a screen," the generous truck driver explains. "Self gratification only goes so far. So, when you’re helping another person, you’re adding something to the world. It’s an investment and people, people are what’s important."
