'Tip-Bombed' Waitress Gets $1,200 Tip the Week Before Christmas

By    |   Friday, 19 Dec 2014 05:08 PM

A Virginia waitress was surprised and overwhelmed by a “tip bomb,” a $1,200 tip from a group of people who wished to remain anonymous.

Megan Asadi, a Pakistani refugee who just became an American citizen, was on her regular shift at Virginia Kitchen in Herndon when she got the tip on a $128 ticket, USA Today said.

“I’m sure they’ll be so surprised and excited,” Asadi told USA Today of her kids.

The unidentified group calls the gesture a “tip bomb,” USA Today said, and they’ve done the same for other servers before.

The restaurant owner told USA Today that it couldn’t happen to a nicer person; he said Asadi has two young daughters and is a single parent.

Leaving large, generous tips has been a trend for the last few years. Seth Collins leaves $500 tips across the country as part of Aaron’s Last Wish, fulfilling a request made by Collins’ brother before his death.

A woman in Illinois left three waitresses $5,000 each as a tip in February, the New York Daily News said. She overheard them talking to each other about the challenge of paying for school, loans and braces, the women told the newspaper.

Former NFL star Chad Johnson tweeted this week that he gave out a $300 tip to a waitress, and then later tweeted that his gesture apparently caused a woman who saw his social media note to rethink suicide, Complex reported.

The woman tweeted him that she “bought everything she needed” to kill herself, but seeing his generosity helped her remember that people could be kind.
