Does it make sense to give more if you have more to give? While being generous isn’t limited to those who have the means to share their blessings, those who have more than the capacity to give back to others should … especially if they were satisfied with the meal.
Yes, we are talking about the celebrities who had left generous tips at restaurants, going to great lengths to express their satisfaction with the service and food. What 20 percent?
Artist Donnie Wahlberg has always been known to be generous and had tipped a lot of waiters already that he deserves to be on top of this list. Just this New Year, he gave back to others by leaving a $2,020-tip to an IHOP server.
Everyone’s favorite person may be a great and funny cook but whenever she dines out, she makes sure that she goes above and beyond to say thank you for an A-plus service. When she and her family went to Ohio to watch a high school football team play, they ate at Outback Steakhouse where she left the waitress a $1,000-tip.
The 21-year-old server, Mikayla Scott, admitted she was nervous, and who wouldn’t be – this was the singer and his supermodel wife. Apparently, Chrissy really liked the waitress and after paying their less than $200-bill, she gave an ample sum for the staff to use.
It seems that there’s a trend here: funny women are some of the most kind-hearted souls. As with Chrissy, Amy Schumer has been repeatedly described as generous for previous situations wherein she shared some of her earnings in the form of tips.
Five years ago, the Trainwreck star left $500 for the waitress on Long Island, where she had incurred a $50-bill. Apparently, she did this after learning that the server was juggling two jobs to help send herself to college.
Another instance that showed Amy is a big tipper was when she watched the Broadway musical Hamilton. The comedian left $1,000 for the bartender, who split the hefty sum to co-workers.
If you were a waiter, then you’d definitely love serving NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. During his guest stint at Jimmy Kimmel’s show, he recounted how he tips servers at restaurants.
Whenever he is done eating, he graciously asks the waiter how much he/she wants. In one instance, the waitress allegedly requested a $4,000-tip, and Shaquille fulfilled his promise.
