LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) – Staff at a local restaurant are counting their blessings after a mysterious couple left them a few thousand dollars in tips.
Owner of Leo and Ken’s Truck Stop and Restaurant Mitchell Rhoades said a couple came for breakfast on Sunday morning, April 3.
Before leaving, they paid for everyone’s meal and gave the cashier about $4,500 to split among the serving servers.
“They deposited the money, and of course I tried to turn it down at first, you know it was WAY too much money. But they wouldn’t hear it and they said, man, we’re just trying to bless people like we were blessed. So they handed me the money and walked out,” Rhoades said. “It was the first time it happened like that. I mean it’s a good deal, and it caught me totally off guard.
He said that before the couple left, they told him they had received a blessing and it was right that they give it to him.
Rhoades hopes that the next time he or his staff see someone who needs a helping hand, they’ll be up to it too.
“This world would be a lot better if we tried to help each other rather than stepping on someone else to get what we need or want. There is always enough for everyone, and we can always helping someone who may be in need or less fortunate, it would make the world a better place,” he said. “Emit good into the world and the good will come to you.”
The couple left without telling them who they were, but Rhoades said he wanted them to know they are all very grateful and God bless them.
