According to CBS 17, a Greensboro, North Carolina, Waffle House waitress, Shirell “Honey” Lackey, received a monster tip from an anonymous country music singer while working a double shift.
But it wasn’t just any double shift… Honey also was taking care of her daughter in the restaurant while taking care of customers.
The anonymous country singer placed a pickup order and somebody from the crew picked it up, leaving a $50 tip. But when the crew member got back to the bus and told the artist about Honey, he came back in and dropped an extra $1,000 dollars on top of it.
He also gave her two concert tickets, as well as sent toys and clothes to her home.
According to Honey, he respected her hustle:
“He was like, ‘I have to respect a mother that would do whatever it takes to support their child in a society where people don’t even want to work anymore.’
It feels good to be recognized. I mean, I don’t do it to be recognized, I do it because Bella is everything… but it’s nice to be recognized for doing the things we do as mothers.”
The artists remained anonymous, however since he gave her a couple concert tickets for his show the next night, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. I’ll leave it up to you to do your own detective work.
