Generous Diners Leave Waitress And Fellow Customers A Sweet Surprise (VIDEO)

This story is proof that one good deed can definitely lead to another.

On Saturday, a couple walked into the Golden Girls Restaurant in Clinton, Tennessee, ate, and asked their server, Shirley Carr, to do them a favor. After spotting an elderly mother and daughter across the way, the couple wanted to secretly pay the check for the two women.

[The husband] said, 'If you don't mind I'd like to have their check. I'd like to pay their bill but you have to promise not to tell who paid it'," Carr told WBIR-Clinton. "They paid the bill and left. Then, the woman asked me if she could pay her bill. I said, 'I'm sorry. I cannot give that to you. It has already been paid.' I thought she was going to cry."

It wasn't until Carr, a single mom to three boys, ended her shift that she realized the generous couple had left something for her, too: a $100 tip, the biggest tip ever given at Golden Girls Restaurant.
