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.

Fox News host Martha MacCallum challenged Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a member of the president's impeachment defense team, about why Republicans will not allow witnesses in Donald Trump's Senate trial.
"With regard to [former National Security Adviser] John Bolton," MacCallum said at the conclusion of a Fox News interview on Wednesday, "one of the things that you hammered home during the House side of this process was that all of this [evidence against Trump] is hearsay."
"But now you have John Bolton saying that he was in the room, that he knows the president's thinking on this," the Fox News host continued. "The president has flatly denied that, says it isn't true. But how do you get past that?"
‘The president is afraid’: Historian tells CNN that Trump’s attempt to block Bolton’s book is an epic blunder
Historian Timothy Naftali, a clinical associate professor of public service at New York University, told a CNN panel on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's attempt to block former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing his book would be a massive political blunder.
While discussing the news that the Trump White House sent a formal threat to Bolton warning him against publishing his book, Naftali predicted that the move would backfire and make it more likely that vulnerable Republican senators would call for Bolton to testify.
The View’s Meghan McCain sparks instant clash over impeachment conviction votes
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain sparked an instant clash by gloating over Democratic senators signaling they were open minded on convicting President Donald Trump.
The conservative co-host cited a report that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was considering acquittal -- the senator and another reporter claimed was an inaccurate account of her remarks -- and kept on going.
