Man makes an odd request, but then unexpectedly shocked everybody, especially the waitress.


To set the scene, a man walked into the Denny’s restaurant with a very odd request, he in fact said just this:

Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?

Now, this caused a few moments of confusion but to humor the man he was indeed sent a waitress called Crystal. He sat in his seat and watched the other customers for around a couple of hours, but it was what he did next that left the staff completely dumbfounded.

Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’

I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section. You sat there for 2 hours just watching people.

7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know.

I asked, ‘Why did you do that?’ You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.’

Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up (It’s why I walked away so quickly) as soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them.

I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place.

Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you she gets her new place next week, because of you 7 families ate for free.

Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you.

You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of every one of us here.

Thank you.

The world is a sad and scary place sometimes, and you wonder how we got here. A simple kind act or a grand gesture,it doesn’t matter,what matters is love and treating people with respect and kindness. When I leave the world I want to know I made a difference in peoples lives.

Another commented:

You have a heart of gold and some young lady will be so blessed to have you in her life…
