$14,000.00 – the new 15%?

Posted by gratrueities on November 10, 2008

Probably not unless you’re Kristina Downes, the Portland, Oregon waitress who recently received a $14,000.00 tip!

Kristina, who waits tables at Saylors Old Country Kitchen in southeast Portland, got the tip of a lifetime from two regular customers who took an interest in helping her realize her plans for the future.

This story caught my eye. It’s a bit of happy and inspiring news during these days of hearing daily about the greed that has plunged our country into economic turmoil.

Congratulations to Kristina and kudos to her generous patrons!
