Jessica Simpson recently left a waitress a very generous tip, along with a note that was both encouraging and kind. After dining with her mother, an assistant and two friends, she decided to go above and beyond the call of duty in showing her gratitude.
According to the NY Daily News, Simpson had told the waitress at Lavo in New York City that she had a hard day at work. It seems the waitress was especially attentive to Jess and her guests, far beyond the serving of their foods. The note Jessica Simpson left the waitress was written as follows:
“You were amazing, and make this world a better place. Love, Jess.”
Along with the note, Simpson left the waitress a very generous $300 tip, which was a total of 60 percent of the total bill.
Friends of Simpson have said she’s been sharing the love even more than she usually does since becoming engaged to Eric Johnson back in November. That’s not all too unusual. People who are happy and in love tend to want to share their joy with others. Not many share their joy as generously as Jessica Simpson did, however!
If you’ve ever worked as a waitress or waiter, you fully understand the excitement Jessica Simpson’s waitress must have felt when receiving her $300 tip and note. Waitressing is hard and often unrewarding work, and when someone expresses their gratitude in that fashion, it’s a really big deal.
Kudos to Jessica Simpson for treating her waitress so kindly and generously. She’ll likely remember that gesture for the rest of her life.
