Officer Surprised By The Note Outback Employees Left On His Receipt (Photos)

Manager Arline Wood, who has worked at the Outback in Slidell, Louisiana for 18 years, and a waitress named Zoë Rao decided the four police officers dining at the restaurant deserved to know how much they were appreciated by their community.

“They're the sweetest guys, I enjoy waiting on them,” Rao explained.

“They care about the community, they care about everybody, they're just great guys, our whole police force is great and these guys at night, I went to Zoe and I said, let's take care of it,” Wood commented.

The two then paid the $67 dinner tab and included a note thanking the officers. The Slidell Police department decided to show the Outback receipt and kind note on their Facebook page, and the post received tens of thousands of likes.

The two Outback employees were shocked by all the publicity. “I got a phone call early in the morning and I was like what are you talking about? People were calling me and then we saw it on Facebook, then it's on this one and that one, and we didn't do it for this publicity, because lord knows I don't like all this publicity,” Wood noted.

The women said they hope their small act will encourage others to thank all the hard-working police officers across the US.

Of course, the appreciative officers left a generous tip to express their thanks for the free dinner.
