In odd news of the day, a Waffle House in Raleigh, N.C., forced a waitress to return the $1,000 tip she received on Mother’s Day. During her late shift, a gentleman customer made Shaina Brown’s night after leaving a $1,500 tip—$500 of which was asked to be shared with another woman, a down-and-out-looking customer at a nearby table. Brown, according to the News & Observer’s Josh Shaffer, is a 26-year-old single mother of three working two jobs.

For more on Waffle House’s policy regarding large tips like Brown’s, read Shaffer’s thoughtful piece, which may just have gotten Brown her tip back.

The customer, a Raleigh businessman, prefers to remain anonymous.
