I’m such a sucker for stuff like this… even if they sometimes turn out to be fake! [Newser]
Claire Hudson, 25, was serving tables at Mac’s Grub Shak in Spring Hill on Sunday when a “very sweet couple” sat down and ordered beers, a burger, and hot dogs, Today.com reports. It was only after they left that a cashier pointed out the $36 tip the man had left on his $28.12 bill, along with a note on the back.
Today is my brother’s b-day. He would have been 36 today. Every year I go eat his favorite meal (hot dogs) and tip the waitress his age. Happy B-day Wes.” “It’s the best tip I’ve ever gotten,” Hudson says, “not because of the money, but because of the meaning.”
The owner of Mac’s Grub Shak now want to honor the man that inspired the generous gratuity. They hope to track down the tipper to find out exactly what Wes liked on his hot dogs so the eatery can “name a hot dog after him.”
