A waitress named Shaina Brown was working on Mother's Day at a Waffle House in North Carolina, and was lucky enough to receive a $1,000.00 tip from a man who only ordered coffee!

Unfortunately, Waffle House wouldn't let her keep the tip! According to Waffle House spokesperson, all "large tips" on credit card purchases are NOT charged, as a company policy. 

WHAT???

The good news is that local news media covered the story, and the anonymous tipper tracked Shaina down and gave her the tip in cash!
