Kids Realize Mistake & Go Back To Tip Waiter After ‘Grown Up’ Night Out

Here’s a heart-warming story for you! A group of 13-year-old kids headed out to celebrate their homecoming but, clearly enjoying the experience of being out without their parents for the first time, they messed up the tip and only left $3.28 between them.

However, they made amends with the nicest note you’re likely to read this week – as revealed by the waiter who took to social media to explain…

“Nothing more frustrating than when I get little to nothing for a tip and the customer is smiling and thanking me profusely as they exit. These kids came back another day and left this for me at the front desk, with $18 and some change. I’ve been serving a long time, and nothing like this has ever happened to me, or anyone. I don’t know how you learned or educated yourself on tipping, but I really appreciate the effort and kindness. I hope your Homecoming was fantastic!”

You can see the letter, below:

“Dear Mr Waiter [redacted]

“About a week and a half ago, on October 7, my friends and I came to eat at this restaurant as our own homecoming celebration. It was an exciting experience for us to be here alone, and it was new to us and you were the best waiter we could ask for. You were kind, helpful accommodating, didn’t treat us like babies, and were even able to fit the food to all my allergies! So I wanted to say thank you for making our “grown-up” experience so amazing and fun. I would also like to say sorry on behalf of my group. Since we were new to all this, our 13-year-old minds didn’t exactly know how to deal with the bill. You were super helpful in dividing the check up and taking our not-so-preferable cash…”

The letter went on:

“…The bill was reasonable, but we had completely forgotten (and frankly didn’t know) what a tip even was, let alone how much to give. So we emptied our pockets and all our money added up to $3.28. Not aware of how small this really was, we left, clueless of what we had left you for all your hard work. Later, we realized our mistake and felt HORRIBLE. We knew we had to make it right. So in this envelope, you will find the correct 18% tip + extra for simply being amazing. We appreciate your help and patience, and thank you for making our night fun. Thank you!

– The 4 teenagers from that night”
