Said to be a Texas employee Hard at the $ 2,000 end of a mystery restaurant She will take the money home after all – now her boss has agreed to cut her a check.
21-year-old Emily Bauer will be paid by the owner of Red Hook Seafood and Bar in San Antonio. News station Keynes reported.
“It’s Christmas time, and everyone is struggling,” owner John Cheng told the store Wednesday. “I’m ready to give it to her as a Christmas present.”
Cheng Boer is said to have written a check for 0 2,069.01, which is the tip amount and the customer’s bill cost.
“The owner of my job is willing to give it to me. Although it’s not his mess, I can not thank him enough for that,” he told the news station.
After apologizing to a customer over the weekend for the service being “slow”, Boer was fired once in a lifetime.
“He said, ‘Okay, I have restaurants and I understand how it can be a server.’ I thought, ‘Thank you for understanding,’ “Pauer told The Post on Wednesday.
Burr said she did not realize until he left that he had given her a $ 2,000 tip over the $ 69.01 bill, “Merry Christmas! Work hard! ”
He said his enthusiasm soon turned to disappointment when a manager told him he could not process more than $ 500 tips.
The restaurant did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
But the restaurant now insists the test was a misunderstanding – and they could not pay the tip because the transaction was invalid.
“It’s like the bank tells you,‘ Oh, this is fraud. We are not going to do that, ” the general manager, who declined to be identified, told Keynes.
“What if I put my $ 2,000 tip? My bank is going to deny it. They are going to deny it. They’re going to deny it because I don’t usually do it; I usually don’t tend to do that. ”
The general manager client then called to see if Bauer had received his tip, but the manager did not have the opportunity to copy his contact information.
“We told him to come back to the store because we couldn’t pay. He said, ‘OK’ and hung up immediately before I could say anything,” said the manager, whose number was private.
Although the generous tipper never showed up, the owner said he wanted to get the situation right.
Bower previously told The Post that he plans to spend money on Christmas presents for his two sons, aged 2 and 5 months.
“I’m going to spend it on them,” said Bauer, who was fired earlier this year for a COVID-19 infection.
“I was praying for something like this,” he added.
