Getting a little extra cash is always nice. You know, as a birthday present or tucked away in your Christmas stocking. But what if a total stranger handed you a casual $1,000? Supposedly, that's what happened to one lucky waitress. According to a blogger by the name of Casual Cynic, her mother was waiting on a customer and mentioned in passing that her family was from Italy and that she'd never been there. After finishing his meal, he told her to have a nice day and walked out the door. When the waitress went to go collect the receipt, she saw that he left a $1,000 tip and wrote, "Your ticket to Italy. Enjoy!!" next to the amount.
Um, hey, I wish I just had an extra $1,000 to hand over to a complete stranger. Talk about karma! Actually, talk about ONE LUCKY LADY! Best shift ever? Most definitely.
Of course, there's no legitimate proof that the receipt is 100 percent real. Am I a little skeptical? Of course. But either way, this is a pretty freakin' awesome story.
