Crypto bro tips $3,000 on $13 bill at restaurant in Pennsylvania


A restaurant that had invested in cryptocurrency gave a restaurant server in Pennsylvania a whopping $3,000 tip on a $13 bill, according to a new report.

When out-of-town boss Eric Smith recently paid for a stromboli at Alfredo’s Cafe in Scranton, he surprised waitress Mariana Lambert with the generous tip, CNN reported Sunday.

“When it came time to pay his check, Lambert walked into my office with tears in his eyes and shaking, reporting that a customer was tipping him $3,000 on his $13.25 bill,” said said Matt Martini, director of the establishment. in a report.

The recipient of the client’s largesse, who had worked at the restaurant for about two years, told a local publication that she was “touched” by the gesture.

“It really meant a lot to me because everyone goes through hardships. it really touched me. I still can’t believe it. I am still in shock,” Lambert said, according to local TV station WNEP.

She also recalled that initially staff were unconvinced that the gratuity – handed out on June 16 – was above board.

“We executed his card and everything was fine. We took his ID and took pictures of everything,” Lambert reportedly explained. “They waited a bit to make sure it was legit and passed, and it ended up being real.”

Zachary Jacobson, manager of the family restaurant, told CNN that Smith was a Pennsylvania native “involved in cryptocurrency” who wanted to “give back to the community.”

The generous customer wrote “Tips for Jesus” on his receipt, in an apparent reference to the anonymous Instagram account “tipsforjesus,” which features unusually large tips left for servers at restaurants across the country, according to Jacobson.

Former PayPal executive Jack Selby has for years been suspected of being behind the trend.

“I’m happy to see people giving back,” Jacobson said, according to the outlet. “It’s a very difficult industry to get involved, especially during Covid.”

“It’s good to know that there are still good people out there,” the manager reportedly added. “It helped her a lot.”
