A North Dakota server just got a major Christmas bonus from a group of kind customers.

A 19-year-old server at a restaurant called Deaner's Diner in West Fargo just received a $700 tip from a group of women committing a holiday act called the "Shock N Clause." According to a Facebook post by Deaner's Diner, the women put together a bunch of cash to pay for a meal and give the rest of the money as a tip to a server. And the women discovered that the server they tipped was definitely deserving.

To the surprise of the big tippers, their server was the perfect recipient of the $700 tip.

Deaner's Diner posted that the server has been through a lot in life and that the tip came at a perfect time for the perfect recipient. The server works at Deaner's because it is her late mother's favorite restaurant. She is also living alone with her younger sister who is a senior in high school.

'Tis the season of giving. Why not give to those who serve us all year long?

As someone who worked in the service industry for 10 years, I know this time of year can be overwhelming. Many stores, restaurants, salons, and more are dealing with staffing issues and long hours as holiday business picks up. So, customers should really keep kindness in mind when they are out and about. And do not forget to tip your servers, drivers, and anyone else who you might want to spread some holiday cheer!
