(TargetLiberty.org) – Those in the food service industry typically receive about a 20% tip for providing excellent customer service. In November, a man named Nicholas went above and beyond when he left a $2,000 tip for a bakery employee in Nebraska when buying his $5 breakfast. The shocked Omaha Bakery employee, Preston Rath, kindly pointed out the assumed error to the generous customer, who promptly made it clear the tip was not a mistake. In fact, he told Rath to go ahead and hit OK, or he would reach around to the register and do it himself.

The bakery’s owner, Michelle Kaiser, said she would split the money between all the hourly workers because they all worked so hard during the pandemic. She stated that Nicholas knew the bakery employees had a “rough time with COVID” and wanted to show his appreciation.
In such turbulent times when it might feel like there’s nothing but division in the United States, random acts of kindness prove what America is really all about. Surely, the employees of a small bakery in Bellevue, Nebraska, won’t soon forget their patron’s unexpected show of generosity. In the words of Kaiser, “it means a lot.”
