Texas Diner Tips Waiter $750 So He Can Fly Home To Ireland

 

 

 

“Hopefully this can get you back to Ireland for the holidays,” a note written across the receipt read.

 

My boyfriend got this tip last night at work. He’s from Ireland and is trying to take us back there once Killian is born so we can meet his family. Thought I would share it to show everyone that’s there is not only hate out there. Truly blessed.

A total stranger in Texas is being credited with leaving a $750 tip for a waiter from Ireland, a generous gift the waiter says will help fly his new family home to meet his folks.

In a Facebook post that’s since gone viral, Taryn Keith, the waiter’s girlfriend, who told The Huffington Post she is expecting a baby in late January, shared a photo of the remarkable triple-digit tip her boyfriend was given on a $122.87 tab.

“Hopefully this can get you back to Ireland for the holidays,” reads a handwritten message across the top.

Keith’s boyfriend, speaking to ABC News, said the surprising gesture followed a conversation he had with the customer about his home country.

It wasn’t until after the diners left that he said he noticed the remarkable sum of money that was left to him.

“My initial reaction was shouting, ‘Holy s**t!’” he recalled to ABC.

Keith is meanwhile using the kind act as an opportunity to spread some love.

“Thought I would share it to show everyone [that] there is not only hate out there. Truly blessed,” she wrote with her Facebook post.
