A diner's regular customer stunned the restaurant when he tipped the staff $3,000 on only a $39.60 check.
When the 12-person staff at Encounter Café in Bellevue, Washington received the generous gratuity, they originally thought it was a joke, until they saw the note left on the bill.
"You guys do a great job! When I was 7, I washed dishes and my mom cooked in a diner like this. We were dirt poor and didn't have money for Christmas. Hopefully, this will help all of you have a better Christmas," the customer wrote.
Eventually the diner's owner Melanie Bard figured out who the mysterious tipper was.
