Waffle House Server Works Extra Hours To Make More Money - Stunned By The Tip One Patron Left Her

A waitress working a shift was having a good time with customers at a table because they shared a mutual love for Harry Potter. At the end of the meal, the waitress was stunned by the size of the tip she received.

Lauren Ball was trying to make as much money as possible that night. The 21-year-old single mother and her son were being treated to a trip to Florida by her father because she graduated National College, but she had just maxed out her bank account for her son Colton's birthday party.

If Ball was very lucky, she might make as much as $60 on her shift at the Waffle House, but that would be too much to hope for. She would have been happy with $30.

A couple of customers she had a good time with ended up leaving her a $600 tip. At first when the 20-something year old men told her they would be leaving her a three-figure tip, she thought they were joking, but it was no joke.

"When I saw that it said $600, I started hysterically crying. That's like three paychecks!" she said to Today.com.

"It took my breath away," Ball said. "It made me sick to my stomach, but in a good way."

The waitress ran outside in tears to hug the patron and ask him why he would do that. He told her he liked doing nice things for people.

"I was pretty bummed to think that my dad was going to have to pay for everything at the beach, but then this happened," Ball said. "I can't believe the timing."
