Pregnant Teen Waitress Gets $1,000 Tip

A pregnant teenage waitress got an unexpectedly large tip when a sympathetic stranger left her $1,000 in cash, according to a media report Friday.

After a lunch of burgers, fries and drinks with a bill of $26.35, the woman left Amanda Newkirk ten $100 bills and a handwritten note reading “Keep the change! Have a great day,” the Roanoke Times reported.

The 19-year-old thought it had to be a joke. But the manager at the Ruby Tuesday restaurant confirmed the authenticity of the bills with a counterfeit-detection pen, according to the paper.
