His first act of business came in the form of a $3,000 tip for an $87.98 check. Now, we’re no mathematicians or anything, but that sounds like way more than 15%.
Since then, the figures have only gotten more ridiculous and Tips for Jesus has struck over 15 times.
Whenever you hear about tipping staff in the news, it’s usually negative, but Tips For Jesus onInstagram is spreading the wealth to all.
From San Francisco to Indiana, the mysterious user behind the account uploads photos of checks with potentially life-changing tips.
Easily the most insane tip of all was at Legends of Notre Dame where Tips For Jesus left a $5,000 tip on a bill of $84.
Which makes us wonder…
- How long can mystery man actually keep this up? (i.e. How rich is this dude?)
- Will we ever find out his true identity? (i.e. When will a TV station or news site offer him enough money?)
- Why can’t this guy afford a nice manicure if he’s going around dropping $10,000 tips?
OK, not gonna lie, kind of wanna be Tips for Jesus guy.
But even though this excessive generosity seems like any waiter/waitresses dream come true, banks have been having a hard time deciding whether or not these tips should be considered fraud and clearing the crazy amounts has been a hassle.
His answer: “AMEX got paid, you should’ve got paid. Check with Legends management… sounds like the owners are trying to screw you. Tipsforjesus pays it’s tabs!”
Guess we’ll just have to stay tuned and see how far this one goes.
