Tip of a lifetime: Waitress receives $446 tip on $6 bill

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) -- CeCe Bruce has received a couple of large tips in her life, but nothing like the one she got Wednesday morning.

CeCe works at an Indianapolis Steak 'n Shake restaurant.

"I was having a hard time at another table, but kept smiling and going on," she says, and that's when one of her regular customers did something that shocked her.

When CeCe picked up the credit card receipt...

"At first I thought, '$46?', and I said, 'Miss Jo, that's really generous!'" she laughs.

But Miss Jo had actually left her a far bigger tip.

The bill was $5.97, the tip $446.

"I didn't think I was worth $400 but, you know, she feels I am," she said.

CeCe, who's going to school part-time at Martin University, said the tip couldn't have come at a better time.

"Pay bills, pay bills right on time, that's what I'm definitely going to do," CeCe said.

She wasn't the only one at the restaurant wearing an extra big smile.

Manager Lindsay Banack said, "You've seen how everyone was pepped up a bit...it just makes me feel good about humanity."
