A cheerful 18-year-old waitress at a Nebraska Cracker Barrel has even more to smile about after a couple of customers left her a $6,000 tip.
During their meal the two men questioned Abigail Sailors, who has spent nearly her entire life in foster care, as to why she was so happy.
What the 18-year-old told them moved the anonymous tippers so much that one immediately got out his check book.
Chatty Waitress Gets $6,000 Tip
Once she was done unfurling her the story of her life so far before complete strangers, she moved on to talk of what's to come.
Abigail was excited about having completed her first semester at North Dakota's Trinity Bible College, but was uncertain if she could continue
attending due to a lack of funds.
The mysterious patrons had heard enough: One of the two men, who was a Trinity alum, took out his checkbook and promptly wrote Abigail a tuition check
for $5,000. He then wrote another $1,000 for supplies and necessities.
Then, at the end of the meal, he left behind an extra $100 tip, which Abigail shared with a fellow server.
"I couldn't believe it," Sailors is quoted as saying. "I tried to thank them, and they said, 'Thank God.'"
A car crash that occurred when she was still an infant incapacitated her mother and forced her and her four siblings to be placed in a foster home
after their biological father was deemed an unfit parent.
Despite a difficult past Abigail is optimistic about her future and grateful to her current foster parents for finally offering her stability
Now she will be able to go back to school and play basketball thanks to the generosity of this stranger.
