Some Tipped Over Stories

Kristen

Princeton

A couple and their kids came in for dinner. The mother ordered pancakes for their boys. The youngest had to have whipped cream for his pancakes, so I brought out the whole bottle for them - why not?! :) Sorry, mom! They were very easy going and great to talk to. When they left, I saw I had been over tipped. It made me smile and warmed my heart that they felt I deserved to be "tipped over." I have never heard of this and definitely will be passing it forward. I hope this family has a wonderful Christmas!

The total bill coming to $38. They charged the bill and left a note which stated Merry Christmas, along with two twenty-dollar bills. It was such a nice surprise, and the fact that they were terribly nice topped it off!!!

I just got tipped $50 on a $15 check! I cannot say I'm not blessed!

The last decade has been one financially rough, uphill road. Just as one rough section is cleared, something else takes its place. Last night that "something else" came along. This brought on dejected thoughts like, "This is never going to end." At lunch, "Been Tipped Over" came to mind even though I hadn't heard it on WCIC today. I've thought of it before but never followed through. Today I followed through, nearly doubling the amount of the check. I don't know what impact it will have on the server, but it sure helped my state of mind.

A gentlemen and his two children came in and left a $35 tip!!! It definitely made my night! Thanks!!!

I was working a lunch shift when this wonderful family came in for their daughter's birthday with a larger group. They were great and I had waited on them before. Their check I said, "You have been tipped over!!"

Savoy

I was recently "tipped over" by a nice gentleman that saw I was very busy but was still getting everyone what they needed. It's customers like these that makes servers' jobs worth it. Thank you!

First time that I have been tipped over at this locally owned restaurant. I definitely did not expect it. It was much appreciated and made my night!

They were a blessing to wait on, simple to communicate with, made friendly eye contact. Couldn't have asked for a better table to start off a long shift at the Barrel! Thank you!!

I had a super sweet mom and daughter that left a generous tip tonight. They were very pleasant to wait on where I work, at a family restaurant in Goodfield. I really appreciated your kindness. Thanks so much!
