Cool? Pretty Dang!

Tips for Jesus is going around leaving gigantic tips for wait staff.  As in $5000 tips.  That is extremely cool.  Way to go, whoever you are.

    Please God this guy’s doing it because he wants to shower the love of Jesus on over-worked, underpaid people and not because he’s concerned about Jesus’ brand name.

    It would be nice if this is real but my daughter says that the tip cannot be charged unless there is a valid signature on the slip. The restaurant can charge the billed amount but not the tip. I’ve actually forgot to sign a big bill once and returned to the restaurant to deliver the tip because I noticed that my credit card bill did not reflect the tip only the food.

      I suppose the question is, what makes a signature valid? After all the story notes that the tips had been charged to @tipsforjesus’ account.

      Then again, @tipsforjesus seems to be the only actual source of this story, so I’m inclined to keep a grain or two of salt handy.

    Back when I was in Evangelicalism, I remember a preacher on the radio mentioning that some Christians were leaving gospel tracts instead of tips in restaurants. He said this was a bad idea since it made Christians look cheap which is not a good witness. He then said, “If you’re going to leave a tract, leave a *big* tip with it!” That’s what this reminded me of. :-)
