While Brianna Siegel was waiting tables at Bar Louie, a young couple came in for happy hour and sat down at a table in her section. After they ordered two burgers and two drinks, they then asked Brianna a question she had never been asked before at work.
“They turned to me and said, ‘Do you believe in God?’” Brianna told the couple that she did believe in God and then went back to work. After the couple ate and paid their $20 bill, Brianna went back to clear the table and discovered they had left a small envelope on the table and instructed her not to open it until after she finished work.
Brianna assumed it was something religious like a mass card, and put it away until she got to her boyfriend’s house later that night. When she finally opened it, she discovered a note and a $1,200 check made out to her name. “It says, ‘P.S. Whenever it gets hard, know God got you,’” Brianna said. “I didn’t know if it was real or if it was a scam.”
“I really had no words, I didn’t know what to say,” said Brianna, who plans on using the generous tip towards nursing school. “There are true caring people out in this world. They want to help me and they don’t even know me.”
