For one pizza delivery man in Oregon, a terrible tip turned into a heartwarming story.
Andrew Schaffer recently received a tiny tip on a $22.67 order. But instead of getting upset, the Portland resident took the $0.33 pizza delivery tip and went on his way.
The next day, Schaffer, who delivers pizzas to help pay for school, got a pleasant surprise: The couple who gave him $23, Tom and Jenn, realized they botched the math and wanted to make sure Schaffer was adequately compensated. So they handed his manager an envelope that read "To the driver who delivered our pizza last night around 9 p.m. - A thank you note."
Inside, Schaffer found:
"It really made my day! Tips make up about two-thirds of my income, which pays for school for me, so I remember who tips and who doesn't," Schaffer wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "The $20 was much appreciated, but the obvious time and effort put into making the card and hand delivering it meant even more."
It just goes to show that sometimes a thank you goes a long way.
