“I just want answers,” a St. Louis waitress tells FOX 2 Now of the customer who wrote in $200,000 on the tip line of a credit card receipt, for a $111.54 bill. Because instead of cashing in that chunk of change, she’s been left with no tip at all.
She says three customers came into the restaurant where she works — two women who said they were sisters and a man. The group exchanged large amounts of cash, said the waitress, and one of the women asked her to keep a secret.
“I will be your guardian angel today. You`ve never seen a person like me. You`ve never had a table like me. This will change your life,” she said, according to the waitress.
When she saw the tip — with an incorrect total of $211,000.54 instead of $200,111.54, she thought her life was about to change forever.
“I can pay off my student loans. I can go back to college,” the waitress said. “You want to believe it. You want to let yourself believe it.”
But instead, her manager and the restaurant checked in with the bank, which was like, “Nope. No can do.”
The waitress now just wants to know why someone would toy with another person’s emotions.
“I would hope that her sister or the other gentleman with them would step forward and say something,” she said.
