Many of us know that working in customer service is no easy feat but for one Indianapolis, Indiana waitress, making the best of it landed her a huge tip.
According to WTHR, Cece Bruce has been working at Steak ‘n Shake for two years and she apparently tries to do her job to the best of her ability while keeping a smile on her face. Wednesday wasn’t one of her best days due to some not so friendly customers:
“I was having a hard time at another table, but kept smiling and going on because that’s what you do.”
One of her regular customers, Miss Jo, was watching from another table and noticed that things weren’t going so great. So when she was ready to settle her tab, Miss Jo left a bit of an amazing tip: a $446 tip, to be exact.
Cece said she originally thought it was a $46 tip and when she saw it was much more, she was shocked. She then tried to refuse the tip saying it was too much but Miss Jo told her she did deserve it.
The part-time college student says the tip couldn’t come at a better time because it is going towards the payment of her bills.
As for Miss Jo, WTHR didn’t get to speak with her and that’s because, according to Cece, she didn’t want public praise:
“She’s a really sweet lady and she didn’t want any gracious gratitude. She signed the receipt and walked out the door.”
Don’t you just love feel good stories like this? Have you ever left a more than grateful tip – you know, more than the standard 20 percent – because of excellent service?
