A New Hampshire bar patron who ordered two chili dogs, fried pickle chips and drinks earlier this month left the staff a whopping $16,000 tip, according to reports.
The generous tip, which was tacked onto a $37.93 tab, was left by a man at the Stumble Inn Bar and Grill in Londonderry on June 12, WMUR reported.
“Don’t spend it all in one place,” the tipper, who wished to remain anonymous, told his shocked bartender, according to the bar’s owner, Mike Zarella.
“That’s what made her flip it over and look, and she’s like, ‘Oh my god, are you serious?,” Zarella said.
The bar’s owner, Mike Zarella, said he thought the customer may have made a mistake, but the man reassured him he meant to leave that amount.
“He just said that they deserve it, they work very hard,” Zarella said, referring to his workers.
Zarella told Fox News that the bar and kitchen staff split the tip.
