Black Waitress Served Dinner To A Group Of Cowboys, But She Was Shocked When She Reads THIS On Their Receipt
After having struggled to serve an exceptionally high number this weekend, as thousands of people flooded Washington Washington D. for the inauguration of President Donald Trump and the women’s march in Washington, Rosalynd Harris agreed to work as Monday habit.
Harris, a waitress at Busboys & Poets in Washington, was waiting for a few latecomers of the weekend and she got them.
When she saw a group of three men enter the restaurant together, she could guess.
“I could tell they were from the south because they had their cowboy hats on, and I was like, ‘Oh, you’re not from the city,’” Harris told CBS affiliate WUSA-TV, describing the restaurant as having a “liberal, Democratic kind of feel.”
The three men who turned out to be Republicans from West Texas were inaugurating the city. They smiled as they sat down at an empty table. Harris gave them all the menus and gave them back his smile. At this point, Harris did not know after an hour that one of these customers would surprise him during his lifetime.
The polite waitress did not treat men differently from other clients she had. So imagine her surprise as she cleaned her table and wrote this thoughtful message next to the blue ink check: “We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues but if everyone would share this smile and kindness like your beautiful smile our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless.”
Harris’s jaw dropped when she saw the tip of $ 450 at the bottom of the $ 70 bill.
Harris, who juggles between the waitresses and her other job as a dancer and creative director, certainly appreciated the extra money she had to pay her bills. But even more, she says, she appreciated the message.
“Never judge a book by its cover and always be open with people to experience something miraculous like that,” Harris told WUSA-TV. “We may have different opinions and disagree on different issues, but the fact that he still looked at me as an equal and someone of value, it said something, like OK, not all hope is lost.”
On Wednesday, the Washington Post identified the generous dump truck as Jason White, 37, who said he had not even spoken to his friends about this action. His only concern at the time was to spread a message of unity.
“We have to think about being better Americans, we have to look into ourselves and how we treat one another,” White told The Washington Post. “If everyone did a little something to show respect…we can love one another.”
