We’ve heard stories of generous restaurant tips before, but this is one that truly made a difference. A waitress at a Pennsylvania Pizza Hut says she is no longer homeless after receiving a mighty $558 tip on a $40 pizza meal from two kindly customers.
Server Krystal Kramer told Fox News she became homeless in December after her apartment flooded and she could not afford to rent a new one, despite working at two jobs. She moved into a hotel with her roommate but their savings soon ran dry.
Two customers who were not at her table asked Pizza Hut servers if they wanted their leftover pizza. Kramer jumped at the chance stating that she was homeless and didn’t know where she would sleep that night.
“I’m over in my area cleaning. The waitress calls me over. She has her own tip and then she says, ‘This is for me and this is for you.’ It was a tip for $558.33 on a credit card. I couldn’t believe it,” she told Fox News.
With that money, as well as funds from her employer’s voluntary benevolent fund, she was able to put down a deposit on an apartment.
"That tip absolutely changed my life," Kramer said.
