Having a job at a restaurant isn't easy and that's why it's very important to always leave the waiter a generous tip. Unfortunately, one waiter experienced the opposite when he served a group of teenagers who were going out to eat all by themselves for the first time. Upon doing everything possible to make sure they had a good experience, he was frustrated to find out that they had left with just a $3.28 tip.

“Nothing more frustrating than when I get little to nothing for a tip and the customer is smiling and thanking me profusely as they exit,” he said. 

We live in a generation where kids aren't being raised the way that they use to, but what the teenagers decided to do next is what really makes this story special. The teenagers, realizing their mistake, decided to leave a nice surprise for the waiter the next day and it completely changed his attitude towards them.

A waiter's job is hard so it isn't the most pleasant feeling when you do your job well enough and customers don't reward you with a appropriate tip.

This is exactly what happened when one waiter spent an evening making sure a group of teens were fully satisfied, only to find out that they had left with a tip of just $3.28.

However, he received this letter the next day:

I honestly would've never guessed that a 13-year-old wrote this letter because the maturity is just amazing.

It's a great thing when people acknowledge their mistakes and apoligize.

It turns out that was all the money they had

It makes me so happy to know that there are still good kids out there.

Why couldn't all teenagers be like this?!

The waiter found the letter and this was his response:

I agree that things like this don't happen as often as they should.

People also congratulated the teens on quick thinking

It was the most adorable thing that I've read all day

I couldn't have said it better myself
