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.

The protesters argued that it is their land after the Ft. Laramie Treaty of 1868, which was ratified by the U.S. Senate.

Trump impersonator hilariously previews the president’s Mount Rushmore speech
On Friday, musician and Trump impersonator J-L Cauvin posted a video satirically previewing the president's Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore.
"The Democrats want you to wear masks, but we don't need masks," said Cauvin, impersonating Trump's New York accent. "Everybody's feeling great — stop coughing! Everybody's feeling great. So healthy. Such great health."
"Democrats want to kill you and silence you," he continued.
He then delivered a parody rant against removing statues, which sources report Trump will make a central point of his speech. "Thomas Jefferson, that's another one they hate. Everyone makes mistakes, but he had African-American girlfriends!"
