He did it because the server “works hard and the country is in a bad place.”
When server Michelle Bozeman was working a recent shift at Ramblin’ Jacks Rib Eye in Napavine, Washington, she was lucky enough to get an amazing tip from one of her customers. While 20% is considered a good tip, she was shocked to find a 6,818% tip when she received a $3,000 tip on a $44 bill.
Bozeman says she looked at it in disbelief, showed her manager, and then they saw the note the customer had written on the back. It read: "Thanks for smiling. You work hard and the country is in a bad place,” and it instructed her to enjoy the money and do something good for someone else.
So the single mother of three did just that. Bozeman shared some of the tip money with her coworkers and plans to use the rest for working on her home and spoiling her seven grandchildren. After more than 20 years as a server, her regular customers say no one deserves it more.

Family in France uncovers a rare antique Chinese vase in their attic and it might bring more than $600K at auction.
A family in France found something everyone who cleans out their attic hopes for deep down - a priceless piece of artwork that had been forgotten for decades. The family opened an old shoebox and discovered an intricately decorated porcelain vase, which they took to Sotheby’s Paris to be appraised and the auction house told them it was from the Qing [[Ching]] dynasty and could be worth more than $600-thousand.
The ancient Chinese vase was left to the grandparents of the present owners by an uncle and will be sold at auction in June. “The vase is of exceptional rarity: the only known example of its kind," Sotheby's said.
It may be extremely rare and expensive, but the owners didn’t really care for the piece. “We didn’t like the vase too much and my grandparents didn’t like it either,” one of the unnamed owners explains.
