A Bartender in Texas was shocked when she learned a stranger had left her a $4-thousand tip. Chelsea Lantrip was tending bar at Chances Dance Hall in Cleburne, Texas, on a regular Tuesday night when a pair of women she didn’t recognize came into the bar. One of the women ordered a round for the whole bar and then tipped Chelsea $1-thousand on the $180 tab.
The kind gesture brought Chelsea to tears. “I started crying and [and then she says] ‘No, that’s not good enough,’ and raised it to $2-thousand,” Bell recalls. But by the time the bartender picked up the check, the anonymous stranger had increased the tip to $4-thousand. Chelsea refused to believe the tip was real “until it hit the bank,” she says.
The money couldn’t have come at a better time for the hardworking single mother. Her son is heading off to college in the fall, and although he’s got a scholarship, he’ll need help with his tuition. But before then, she plans to use some of the money to pay some bills and take her family out for a nice dinner.
