Red Robin  
Ok, this is not my story, sadly. But it is a story of such unsurpassable grace that it HAS to be told!

It's a story about a boy, a boy named Matt. Matt is just about one of the funnest, happiest, most charming people you could ever meet in a lifetime. He used to work at a burger chain called Red Robin and he was so good at serving people he would go in when he wasn't scheduled, work for 2 hours and come back with 100 bucks just from tips. People would get irritated because he made so much in tips.

So one day Matt is serving a group of eight. You know, the whole family going out for a nice dinner or whatever. Everyone's laughing having a good time, and Matt is of course using his wiley charms and making them love him, which is a pretty easy task for this guy. Then, catastrophe. He's coming to their table with the big tray loaded with people's food. Apparently someone had left one of their slippery laminated menus on the ground, and as he walked over it, he began to fall backwards. Food and soda go all over the place, and to top it off he is no more then 3 feet away from his table! But don't worry folks, Matt is not one to be beaten by such a small error! As he stands up, he has something nestled in his arm. He walks over to the table and begins to explain.

"Don't worry, everything is fine. I had to sacrifice EVERYTHING, but I was able to save this chicken sandwhich. So, who's the lucky one with the chicken sandwhich?"

Cue the entire table into loving laughter, and then giving him a $75 tip.

That's awesome. I always tip well, but servers with personality get excessive tips from me.

Amazing. I must meet this Matt-the-preacher guy. I think we'd get along.
