  • Another restaurant tip controversy. Only different.




    An anonymous diner or group of diners have been leaving generous tips at restaurants across the country and posting pictures of receipts on an Instagram account with the username 'tipsforjesus.'

    The mystery tipper has reportedly left thousands of dollars in tips at restaurants in San Francisco and Chicago. They recently left a server at The Hungry Cat in Los Angeles a $1,000 tip on a nearly $266 bill, MyFoxLA.com reported.

    The Instagram account reads, "Doing the Lord's work, one tip at a time."

    The Hungry Cat’s Becky Graziano told the station she thinks the anonymous tipper is someone who wants to be generous during the holidays.

    "I think I was more nervous than anybody, because I pay them out at the end of the night. But it went through, so they got their money," Graziano told the station. "It's a mystery for sure."

    On Tuesday, a University of Notre Dame campus restaurant said two bartenders would share a $10,000 tip that was left by a group of men who signed the receipt '@tipsforjesus' and posted a photo of the bartenders with their tab on Instagram.
    I'm sure some asshole out there will get his nose out of joint over "Jesus," but this certainly seems like a nice thing to do, particularly at this time of year.

    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

    Good for whoever is doing that. What a great Christmas surprise for some hard working people.

      Good for doing it, but whoever it is should learn the lesson Jesus taught about the rich man loudly clinking the coins in the box. There are lots of people being generous especially at the holidays who don't take pictures of it and try to get publicity for it. I appreciate that for now it's anonymous but I don't see the point of the Instagram postings.

        I don't remember that one. I am usually pretty good at this. I am only coming up with the poor widow and the two coins (everything) contrasted to the rich giving gifts from wealth.

            I think that's the one..but I thought Jesus told the people not to stand on the corner loudly giving the money. I could be wrong. I'm catholic, so the details of the bible are sketchy. Plus I'm on an iPad so I can't type that much.

              You may be putting two things together; that bit in Luke about the rich vs the poor widow and the one about not trumpeting your gifts to the needy (or your righteousness in general ... top of the head stuff, here).

                Wait a sec .... it is part of the freaking lectionary!

                You must have missed that one day in the last three years.

                    Oh I've missed a lot of days in the past 3 years. But yeah, I'm probably conflating 2 parables.

                      For once, I'm glad one of these receipt stories is not a hoax. Who gives a shit what the bible says about giving? The anonymous donors should be allowed to distribute their wealth as gifts as they see fit. It certainly beats blowing your wealth after retirement on silly things like gambling or collecting porcelain dolls.

                        Hey, I accepted $100 tips from Mohammed, Mahmood, Ali, and Teddy. God I loved Disco.
                        The year's at the spring
                        And day's at the morn;
                        Morning's at seven;
                        The hill-side's dew-pearled;
                        The lark's on the wing;
                        The snail's on the thorn:
                        God's in his heaven—
                        All's right with the world!

                          I have absolutely no problem with anyone spending their wealth as they see fit.

                            People shouldn't brag, but it's a nice come back to those people who leave fake tips in the name of Jesus. I've heard of people leaving fake ten dollar bills with a religious message. Perhaps this is a comeback from that.

                            In any case, good for them.
