Customers Give Waitress Big Tip, But with a Christmas Catch

Red Robin customers wanted to leave their struggling waitress a very generous tip, but they had one condition for her. The waitress didn't mind obliging at all.

Meredith Goss, a hard-working waitress in Cumming, Georgia, has been waiting tables for four years. She had been working as much as she could this season in order to save up and give her daughter a happy Christmas.

One table of customers had been watching her, and asked some seemingly casual questions. Little did Goss know, the customers were feeling out what kind of person she was. They had a plan in mind.

“We were talking about Christmas and the kids and they were asking me if I had any children and I told them I had a 4-year-old daughter,” Goss said. “They said they wanted to leave a nice tip for being Christmas and in the spirit of giving.”

The customers left her a $200 tip on a $4 bill. “I was kind of in shock, almost like you don’t have to do that, that’s way too much, you know. And they were politely insistent that I take it,” said Goss.

The customers did have one request in return. Goss says they asked her "instead of telling her it was from Santa Claus, tell her it was from Jesus.”

“The spirit of giving comes from being like Jesus and that’s what he enjoyed doing,” Goss concluded. Being a Christian, she was fine with the request.
