Amazing customer pays for waiter to get flashy new pearly whites
For a lot of servers in the restaurant business a 20-percent tip is a good one. A $25,000 tip? Now, that's a reason to smile!
Boettcher noticed that Maixner had severe dental problems, and since he suffered from a similar issue as a child he offered to send his waiter to the dentist -- a tip that added up to about $25K. The attorney said he saw something special in Maixner.
A month after meeting his tooth fairy, Maixner is back at the Doo-Dah Diner with a great big grin.
It's not common, but some servers are just as lucky as Maixner. Last April, a New Jersey bartender got a thousand dollar tip from a patron to help pay for her dogs surgery. At the time she said she burst into tears seeing three zeros on the credit card receipt.
Around Christmastime, a waitress got a $1200 tip on a tab worth $128. The single mom told local reporters she was planning to splurge on her children with the unexpected gift.
