That’s Quite a Tip

Last night we studied James 3 and talked about the tongue and how we tend to both bless God and curse men with our tongue. We talked about how we should do better at building each other and others up.

Now, this is a little beyond that! This man gave his waitress a tip that she could drive!

“I thought at first he was joking with me,” 19-year-old Josefin Justin told the paper on Thursday.

Justin was waiting tables at the Njuraanger Cafe in Sundsvall in central Sweden when the man, who had recently retired and was dining with a group of gentlemen, asked her age.

When she told him, “he said I would get his Porsche as a tip.”

“At first I was a little suspicious but I didn’t get the feeling he was hitting on me or anything, he just seemed really nice,” she said.

She got his phone number and the next day when she called him, he said he remembered his generous offer. Accompanied by her father, she went to the man’s house to pick up her new car.

While I don’t suggest you run out to the local restaurant and offer the waitress your minivan, I would suggest that you take time to tell the people around you how much you are thankful for them and build them up!

    I made a survey, that I think would be really cool if YOU filled it out.
