Why A Cedar Rapids Couple Decided To Pay It Forward And Leave A Huge Tip At A Restaurant Despite Poor Service
It was the "tip heard around the world" when Makenzie and Steven Schultz left their server a very generous tip despite poor service. The couple was out to eat celebrating their wedding anniversary when they decided to pay it forward to their waiter, who was obviously overloaded with tables that night. They didn't stick around to see the waiter's reaction but Makenzie posted a picture of their bill later on Facebook to remind everyone of something very important. The message they were trying to get across? Look at the whole picture before you judge a situation, and always remember where you came from.
That post, which you can see above, has gone viral, and their story has been featured on Good Morning America and The Today Show! Makenzie stopped by the KHAK studios and talked with Brain about meeting her husband while working at a restaurant and why they loved paying it forward.
