Man Tells Waitress He Has No Money — Her Act Of Kindness Comes Back Full Circle

It seems that Zachery Dereniowski has made it his mission to make the world a better place. On his social media accounts, where he has millions of followers, he shares videos of himself finding new ways to make someone’s day. This includes an act of kindness that absolutely blows away a sweet waitress at a local restaurant.

It all starts when Zachery tells the waitress that he doesn’t have any money. Still, he asks if he can have just a single pancake. But the woman won’t give him a pancake — she’ll only give him whatever meal he wants, all on her. Zachery pushes back, but she insists. In turn, he surprises her with the biggest tip of her life: $1,000.

When Zachery reveals he’s partnered with a company called Chime to celebrate National Tipping Day, understandably, the waitress is skeptical. After all, randomly getting $1,000 does seem too good to be true.

“Are you playing with me?” she asks.

Waitress Gets Rewarded for Her Generous Act of Kindness

But once Zachery gives her a letter from Chime, and shows her the money, she realizes this is real! Next, she proves just how generous she is… by sharing the money with her co-workers. But this act of kindness only earns the waitress $1,000 more dollars!

Although she insists she “doesn’t deserve it,” she also admits that the money “couldn’t have come at a better time.”

“What a kind soul,” someone in the comment section writes, “and not a moment’s hesitation to go back and share it with the rest of the staff. A gem of a human.”
