Truck Driver Leaves Two Thousand Dollar Tip for Mother’s Day

Truck Driver leaves a waitress a $2,000 dollar tip


Earlier this week, a waitress at a small diner in Roland, Oklahoma received a whopping $200 tip from a truck driver from Mississippi. It seems that the tip was given for Mother’s day. The waitress, Brenda Pearson, was working at a 4-star Diner when a customer walked in and ordered a cheeseburger. When it was time to pay, he the customer said he wanted to leave a surprise tip.

“The other customers were coming to pay out and he said $1000,” Pearson said in an interview, “I said what? Are you serious? He said yes. I couldn’t believe it. I could hardly breathe. It took my breath away. I have two children at home,” added Pearson, “I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a couple of years. It will help us get caught up on the move and it was just God-send.”

And the kindness didn’t end there. After an hour, the driver came back for dessert and left another $1,000 tip. Channel 5 News tracked down the Good Samaritan and identified him as truck driver David Platt.

“It was late and there wasn’t really anybody around and so I got talking to her a little bit,” David said. “We talked about the Lord and about her life and her children. I got the impression that she was having a hard time of it, so I thought I’d just help her out a little bit.”

“Money is just paper or numbers on a screen,” he added. “Self gratification only goes so far. So, when you’re helping another person, you’re adding something to the world. It’s an investment and people, people are what’s important.”
