A server in Salisbury, Massachusetts was treated to a generous tip by a local businessman on a slow night at the restaurant. Jennifer Navaria was waiting on car dealership owner Ernie Boch Jr at the Seaglass Restaurant and thought he’d left her a $50 tip, but it was so much more.
He actually tipped her $5-thousand on a meal that cost $157.56 and he wrote a note on the ticket reading, “Donnie, your move.” He was referencing Donnie Wahlberg, who made headlines for leaving a $2,020 tip for an IHop server at the start of the year. Boch hopes his generosity inspires someone else to come along and tip a server even more than he and Donnie did.
Navaria says she told him, “‘You made my night,’” but really he made my month.”
