A waiter in Houston, Texas will lay claim to one of the biggest tips ever received for someone in his profession, telling KPRC-TV that he was given $5,000 from a pair of regular customers.
Greg Rubar has been a waiter at D’Amico’s restaurant for 16 years, but never had a day like the one he witnessed on Saturday.
“He said, ‘We’re still going to come in, but we’re not going to tip you for a while,’ Rubar said Wednesday. “He said ‘This is for you to go and buy a nice car.'”
Rubar had lost his car in a storm several weeks ago, resulting in him taking cabs and buses to get to work.
D’Amico’s co-owner Brina D’Amico Donaldson admitted her obvious shock at the size of the tip, but indicated how Rubar is one person who deserves such a pleasant surprise.
“He’s an incredibly hard worker. He would work every shift if we would let him,” he said.

President Donald Trump spent almost two hours briefing the nation about coronavirus on Saturday.
He also complained about impeachment and considered a special exemption to allow churches to open for Easter.
Trump may allow churches to open for Easter despite local bans: ‘Something we should talk about’
"Maybe we could allow special, for churches, maybe we could talk about it. Maybe we could allow them, with great separation outside, on Easter Sunday. I dunno, it's something we should talk about."
"We're not going to churches on Palm Sunday. But think of next Sunday -- Easter," Trump said.
"And I brought it up before, I said, maybe we could allow special -- for churches, maybe we could talk about it. Maybe we could allow them, with great separation outside, on Easter Sunday," he said.
"I dunno, it's something we should talk about," Trump added.
Trump has no idea how coronavirus is transmitted from person to person and therefore doesn't get why packed churches amid a pandemic is a bad idea. This clip of him talking about how he considered an Easter exemption from social distancing shows it. pic.twitter.com/G4LXzNIGKf
