One teenage waiter got a pleasant surprise during what was probably an otherwise uneventful shift. After a day of waiting tables at Smokey Barque BBQ in Frankfort, Illinois, 19-year-old Brendan Motill realized one tip was not like the others.

It was paired with the following note:


Thanks for your kind service! You’re doing a great job as a server. I’m not sure what your hopes and dreams are in this life, but I hope this tip helps.

My hope is that people were more peaceful to each other. The world can be so negative and violent, I commit random acts of kindness to let others know there can be another way. Peace be with you brother!

The check had a whopping 5,000 percent tip. Not bad for a day’s work.
