A teenage waiter said that he was left speechless after being given a massive tip in a random act of kindness.

Brendan Motill was working at Smokey Barque BBQ in Frankfort, Illinois, when one of his customers started talking to him about life.

What Brendan didn’t realise is that when he paid his $20.31 (£13) bill, the man left a $1,000 (£640) tip.

Brendan told ABC7 News: ‘My jaw dropped. I couldn’t do anything. I was in shock.’

He added: ‘He was really humble and I tried to go back out there instantly and he was gone.’

The note to Brendan in full


Thanks for your kind service! You’re doing a great job as a server. I’m not sure what your hopes and dreams are in this life, but I hope this tip helps.

My hope is that people were more peaceful to each other. The world can be so negative and violent, I commit random acts of kindness to let others know there can be another way. Peace be with you brother!
