What higher solution to close out 2022 than with a $2,200 tip?
Tayler Sullivan was working her regular shift at Delano’s Diner in Wichita, Kansas, last week when she waited on a particularly giving 22-person table.
She told local TV station KAKE that she typically never sees a celebration that giant — but it surely seems all of them had a reason to have a good time.
“It was time for them to pay, and I asked how they were going to do their checks, and so they said they shall be all together,” Sullivan recalled.
“Then I bring the check over, and all of the family and friends began whipping out their phones, and so they got out a big amount of cash, like, ‘Alright, annually throughout the Christmas holiday all of us bring out $100, and so we’re gonna allow you to keep all the cash.’”

They reportedly told her: “It’s 22 of us, and all of us brought $100, in order that’s $2,200 so that you can take home. … And we hope you enjoy your Christmas, and that all the pieces goes well for you.”
Sullivan said she was in “disbelief” over the largest tip in her 4 years on the diner, which serves a green chile breakfast burrito and “almost famous” fried pickles, together with burgers, sandwiches, omelettes and waffles.
“Working in customer support, you never expect that amount of cash coming in at a table. Ever,” she told KAKE.
Admitting the funds “helped rather a lot,” Sullivan said she plans to avoid wasting the cash to purchase a automobile or to maneuver. She said she also shared the wealth along with her co-workers.

“I work with them day-after-day, and so they’re like my family,” she explained. “I would like them to have a very good Christmas as well, even when it was only just a bit bit.”
Sullivan proclaimed she’s grateful for each tip, especially throughout the holiday season.
“Since you never know what you would possibly get — and what goes around comes around,” she smiled.
