Some Tipped Over Stories


East Peoria

I am a server in East Peoria and very new to serving. I had a mother and daughter come in and they were very sweet. I had a conversation with them and during it, I told them I was a single mother of 3 boys. Then, I got busy and didn't go back and check on them till a little after their food was delivered. When I did go back, the lady told me I should probably come check on my customers after their food is delivered to make sure their food was to their standards, so I just thought right then and there that I was not going to get a good tip. But when they left I went back to the table and they had left me a $17.00 dollar tip and their bill was less than their tip. On their ticket it said, Jesus loves you. Thank you so much, you have been tipped over. WCIC❤



I've been a server for less than a week now. I still get a little overwhelmed and don't always know the answers to all of the questions my guests will ask; however, I still try to provide the people I waitress with the best possible experience so they will be glad to return as I get better at what I am doing. This past Sunday, my first table on what I knew was going to be a long day working a double shift, tipped me $40 on a $39 tab. I had never heard of tipped over before, but was so grateful to have had such generosity sent my way. Though I figured this was a once in a blue moon thing, I still felt so lucky to have had this happen to me in my first week of waiting tables. It totally changed my entire day and made me so happy to be there. I worked at my other job on Monday and came back to this one on Tuesday of this week for a dinner shift, and unbelievably so, my first table of the night left me an $81 tip on their $81 tab. I cannot express enough how big of an impact these two families made on me through their kindness. I often pay for the person behind me in the drive thru as I know how it brightens my day on the rare occasions that it happens to me.  I hear of waitresses getting extensive tips through the holiday season here and there as well, but to have my guests be so selfless with no occasion at all is truly such a blessing. If either of you are out there reading this, thank you so much, again. You've not only helped me out more than enough in hard times, but you've touched my life with your kindness. It is so good to have a reassurance that there are still sweet people with beautiful hearts out there in this world.

It seemed to be a typical Tuesday night shift. I had a nice couple sit at a two top in my section. They seemed like ordinary guests. I greet everyone the same: with respect and a smile. At the end of their dinner, I cleared their plates and gave them a bill. They stayed a while and chatted while the Mrs. finished her drink. After they left, I picked up the bill and put it in my apron, I was surprised and confused to find that the tip was quite a bit larger than normal. And written on the receipt was "you've been tipped over! With this website written under it. I have honestly never heard of Unfortunately, they left before I could thank them for their generosity. So I suppose, in a way, I am thanking them here!



I work at at a restaurant and received a very generous tip. It caught me totally off guard. If the person who left this tip is reading this, I just wanted to let him know how grateful I am. It's people like you that make this world a better place. Thank you ❤️ #pay it forward!



I work in Tremont and am a regular listener to WCIC. On this particular Wednesday I was a bit disheartened by all the awful things that were happening in our country. I decided I was going to be more kind, smile more, and pray just a little more. I had a family of seven at my table. They were the easiest and most pleasant table of the night. Their bill was around 45.00 dollars and they left me a 30.00 dollar tip!!! They added the website and the note that I had been "tipped over". Thank you to these people and to WCIC, It was definitely that sign I needed on that day to know God is always with us!



I am a daytime busser at a local restraunt and have regular guests come in every week. These two ladies are some of my regular crowd and order all the time for carry out, as well as dine in. I heard about this tipped over thing on WCIC and never thought it would happen to me. But these two ladies came up to me and handed me their receipt and told me to read it. So I read it and they tipped me above and beyond what they usually do. I was so surprised!! This extra tip will go towards my vacation this year.



Today I was tipped over by a regular customer. The feeling it gives you to know someone noticed and also appreciated the service I provided felt amazing. Being a waitress you mostly hear about negatives, like food not hot enough, or they waited to long etc.. When I saw the letter saying I was tipped over, it instantly put a smile on my face and put me in a great mood for the rest of the day! Thank you so much.



This afternoon, I waited on a couple and was tipped over and told to visit this site. This is an awesome thing. Thank you to the couple and thank you WCIC.



I was tipped over today at the cafe I work at. It made my day so much better. Now, I can go buy more clothes for my soon to be baby. This tip came when I needed it most!! Thank you. You made my week!!



A great couple came in and rolled with the punches I threw their way. Seeing the tip made me do a double take and, as a broke college student, it meant the world to me. Appreciate it, guys!
