*One bartender in Manhattan just can’t stop grinning. And with clear cause. It was a slow night for Caitlin Cahill, who works as a Bartender at GuYer’s on New York’s upper west side; when two gentlemen entered the bar and would end up staying for two hours.
“It was a really slow, quiet night. Just chatting for a while,” Cahill tells CBS2.
During that time one of the men, Jack Selby, a former Paypal executive, asked the pretty bartender if she was familiar with the Tips for Jesus (acts of human kindness) movement.
“I said I was,” Cahill responded. Selby said, “That’s me!”
Cahill thought he was joking and went about her business. But later, after processing the check, realized the man had left her a $5,000 tip on a $100 bill. The words “We back” were scrawled on the receipt!
Christianheadlines.com reports on the man behind the generous tipping movement (at the time Jack Selby was only ‘suspected’ to be the creator) and writes:
“Tips given by him have the words ‘God bless!’ scrawled across the receipt and the handle @tipsforjesus stamped next to the signature. But it’s not Christian generosity, he said. ‘The movement we have started is intended to be agnostic,’ he was quoted as saying.
Watch Caitlin talk to CBS2 in the video below. The last ‘Tips for Jesus’ tip was recorded a year ago; when some lucky person received $2,000.
Clearly, I’ve gotta consider a new career.
Cahill said she was going shopping with her new windfall. Bergdorf, here she comes!
