Needing money to help pay for her senior prom, 18-year-old Kelsey Tolliver was selling newspapers on Easter Sunday inside University Hospital.Now that's what I call a good tip.
That's when she got an Easter gift and her prom wishes fulfilled by a stranger.
"Some man walked up to me, smiled, told me Happy Easter and to keep the change," Tolliver said Tuesday.
She looked down and believed the man gave her $4 for the $1.50 Sunday newspaper, an amount she considered "a pretty good tip."
After a moment, though, the bills felt too thick to be just four $1 bills.
She counted it - and lost her breath.
In addition to the smile and Easter greetings, the man had given her $500 in $20 bills and the four $1 bills. (Full Story)
I've been on both ends of the tipping world. The most I'd ever received was a twenty dollar tip on a $2 bottle of beer. Unfortunately, I really can't remember the most I'd ever given as a tip. I did once leave a tip that was equal to the amount of the check, but I think the check was only around $15. But, the service was just that great.
