Working as a server is a very physically demanding job even though you get the extra tips. Now think of how hard it is doing it while being eight months pregnant.
23-year-old Courtney English is eight months pregnant, and she is having her first child. She waits for the tables at the Lamp Post Diner in New Jersey to prepare for the birth.
One Friday, which happened to be a busy one, she served a new face among the regulars: a local Voorhees County police officer.
He had lunch, and they both engaged in a casual conversation.
As he finished the meal, he went to the counter to pay his $8.75 bill.
But he didn`t only leave the payment with the customary tip. The note he left on his bill has gone viral across the country.
The police officer left a message on his receipt:” It was from the heart. Enjoy your first. You will not forget it.”
Together with his $8.75 check, he left her $100 tip.
Dad Brian says, ” It was from the heart.
You always hear about how Bad the Police are, How They treated you like dirt, how they are on a Power Trip, Yes I am…
These words touched her. There have been many situations where she received a nice tip, but that little remark was what got her. ”
Overwhelmed Courtney ran to her boss in tears.
Her dad shared her story on Facebook. The story got many people moved by the kind-hearted gesture and went viral.
