SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - FEBRUARY 22: A South Korean banker carries US dollar bank notes at the Korea Exchange bank on February 22, 2005 in Seoul, South Korea. The South Korean won jumped to its highest intraday level in more than seven years in domestic trade on Tuesday, boosted by strong foreign equity buying and exporter deals.

It happened at Coaches Bar and Grill in Columbus, OH. Last weekend the governor Gov. Mike DeWine ordered all restaurants and bars in the state to close to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.  So, one generous customer ordered some food and had a tab of around $30.  He ended up leaving an enormous tip of $2500 and a note that read “Please split this tab equally between Tara, Nicky, Jim, Liz and Arrun.”

The tipper wanted to remain anonymous but he was definitely a regular.

“There were tears of joy among everyone here,” Leonard told CNN. “On a day when I’ve never seen a shutdown like that, I’ve never seen a tip like that either.”
