Family leaves waitress, single mother $500 tip

Tampa, FL -

On Father's Day, it's usually the dads who get presents. But a mom got an incredible one in Lakeland this year.

Nichole Woods is a single mother of three, so every penny counts. She was working as a server at Bob Evans on US 98 on Sunday when she got the surprise of her life.

She's received big tips before – but never anything of this size.

A family's bill came to $50. They left her a $500 tip.

"I cried," she told FOX 13.

Since the family paid in plastic, which meant she wouldn't get the money right away, they left her a $10 tip in cash on the table. They also left her a note thanking her for her service and saying, "Jesus loves you."

Nichole plans to use $400 on her kids' back-to-school clothes. She has something special in mind for the other $100. She wants to go out to eat and leave her server a super big tip.

"Pass it along, help someone else," she said.
