Amazing Things

A Man Sits At Denny’s For 2 Hours And Orders Nothing. Then He Stands And Surprises Everyone


The world is full of terrible people, but it’s also full of amazing people.

One waitress in Utah saw first hand how amazing people can be when you least expect it.

A man walked into a Denny’s and asked the waitress to be seated in a section where his waitress would be a single Mom. Odd right? Then that man proceeded to sit at the table for two hours without ordering a single item, he just watched the families eating around him. Odd right? Well, it’s not so odd when you hear what this man did at the end of his two-hour stay.

Via AWM:

“Today I met an angel. You came into a Denny’s I work at in Utah. You asked me, ‘Can I have a waitress who is a single mother?’ I thought it was very odd, but I sat you in Crystal’s section. You sat there for 2 hours just watching people.

“7 families came in and ate while you were there and you paid every one of their bills, over $1,000 you paid for people you didn’t even know.

“I asked, ‘Why did you do that?’ You simply said, ‘Family is everything, I’ve lost all mine.’ Looking into your eyes while you said that made me tear up (It’s why I walked away so quickly) as soon as I got in the back I broke down in tears because your eyes had so much pain in them. I just wanted to let you know, the waitress Crystal that you requested was living in a shelter with her son until she was able to save up enough to get a place.

“Your bill was $21.34 and you left her a $1,500 tip, because of you, she gets her new place next week, because of you, 7 families ate for free. Crystal told me she prayed the night before for a miracle and God sent you.

“You left before any of us could say thank you, I hope you read this because you’re truly an amazing person and you stole the hearts of everyone of us here. Thank you.”

My faith in humanity is somewhat restored after reading this wonderful story. Share this story and remind the World that miracles really do happen.

    Now we know there is still good in this world and good in people and it isn’t all about everything and every person for themselves. God Bless this man and I hope he will find a family or be able to create his own family. The Lord sent u truly an Angel and for all we know he is an Angel and God sent him to help this woman and her child. Miracles and believing in r faith and God is amazing!

    Things like this truly happen but on this particular article,; it reads the man was there for two hours and did not order anything but yet he had a bill of 21.34…….? As I said I know things like this happen because my family did this one Christmas for a single mother by leaving a huge tip instead of exchanging Christmas that year.

      I question the validity of most of these stories because of the constant adds….despite deleting them they still pop up. This guy paid everyones tab for 2 hours and probably left huge tips and the waitress’s didn’t have time to say thank you–its no wonder he left. I have done humanity a favor a few times and the stories do not need the unnecessary exaggeration.

    I can relate
    I have no living Family anymore…

    My fiancé’ ran off long ago when I was in the Navy, all my friends back in my hometown are dead..
    I now live in Florida where I do not know 1 living person…

    I would give anything to go back home to my mom and dad and sisters and just listen to them complain and bicker back and forth again, I’d sit there with a grin ear to ear and never mention why.

    I miss you all so much !.
