CeCe Bruce, a 2-year server at a Steak ?n Shake in Indianapolis, Indiana was overwhelmed by a very generous tip left by a regular customer.

Miss Jo, who commonly eats her Wednesday breakfast at the restaurant, watched as her waitress got a hard time from diners at another table.

When the time came for the regular to pay her $5.97 check, she left a tip that shocked CeCe.

The server told WTHR 13, "At first I thought, '$46?' And I said, 'Wow Miss Jo. You know, that's really generous!'"

But the gratuity was actually much larger. It was $446 amounting to an over 7000% tip. :wacko:

When interviewed by WISH 24 News 8 CeCe recalled, ?We kind of had this little back and forth argument because I said, ?Miss Jo, I can?t accept that.? And she said, ?Yes you can. You can take that. I gave it to you, you can take it.?? The server humbly commented, ?I didn't think I was worth $400 but, you know, she feels I am.?

Cece, a full-time server and part-time student at Martin University said that the money couldn?t come at a better time and will help her to pay bills.

The restaurant?s general manager Greer Gooley said CeCe, ?Stays late, comes in early.

Whenever we need her, she's here. So she deserves it more than anyone.?

WTHR repored that Miss Jo does volunteer work in the community and likes to keep a low profile, which may explain why CeCe barely had a chance to say thank you.

?She signed the receipt and walked out the door,? said CeCe adding ?Miss Jo, if you're watching, I love you and thank you very much!"

That is a nice gesture. I just hope we all aren't expect to pay that much now.
