Knoxville Waitress Gets $1075 Tip (Video)

A Knoxville waitress says she is still in shock after a seemingly normal customer tipped her $1,075 on Wednesday night. Her coworkers say the generous gratuity proves good things happen to good people.

Khadijah Muhammad showed up at her job at Cheddar’s on Clinton Highway on Wednesday afternoon and provided her typical solid service with a smile. Service is something Muhammad has devoted her life to both on and off the job. When she is not working as a server, she’s making homemade pies, muffins, soup, and delivering it to the homeless on her own.

“With God’s help,” she said, “I managed to make it up there driving in the middle of the big snow storm that hit earlier this month. I was able to see her and she pulled through, thankfully.”

When she returned to Knoxville, Muhammad realized that she was not going to be able to pay all of her bills because of the work she had missed.

“I’ve been trying to pick up any extra shifts that I can,” she said.

Her shift Wednesday began relatively slow. She served a few tables, including one table consisting of a husband, wife, and their small child.

“They really did not stand out,” Muhammad said. “They were just nice folks. I remember talking to them and having a friendly conversation like you would with a neighbor.”

The table’s total bill with tax was $29.30. When Muhammad came to collect the check, the receipt was turned upside down. When she turned it over, she saw that the tip was for $1,075

“I just was in shock,” she said.

It included a note that said, “Jesus Blessed us and we were led to give it to you. God Bless!”

Muhammad said she has no clue who the generous tippers were or where they were from. But she is certain of what she would like to tell them.

“I just want to thank them. Thank them so much, because I’m humbled. I’m grateful. I do believe that God led you to me at this time in my life,” Muhammad said.

Muhammad said she is curious about how the customers arrived at the amount to tip. She wondered if that figure was simply what the customers had available to them or if it holds some other significance.

In any case, the money will help Muhammad make ends meet during a difficult time in her life.

“I hope and pray that someday I’m able to do this for somebody,” she said.
