A waitress at a Waffle House in North Carolina received a $1000 tip from a customer on Mother's Day, but the restaurant wouldn't let her have it.  In fact, they REFUNDED it.

Waffle House has a policy to not accept huge tips on credit cards.  They say it's because they're afraid customers will dispute the charge later and they'll lose money.

On Mother's Day Shaina Brown, a single mother with two jobs, was left a $1000 tip and Waffle House said she couldn't keep it but the anonymous customer, ended up writing her a check directly.
