Who’s The Mystery Mega Tipper in Fenton
One Thousand dollar tip in Fenton? Oh it happened at Leo’s Coney Island – check out this post:
I love these stories during the holiday season (and year round of course)
To the gentleman who came into Leo’s this morning and tipped $1000 dollars on a $14 bill to be split between the staff, we greatly appreciate you and we hope you have a blessed Christmas! Thank you so so very much! I had no idea before you left or I would have asked for a hug! You are an awesome human! Thank you again!
Part of me wishes we could find the person who did this (I mean come on: one thousand dollar tip in Fenton…how cool) – but maybe it’s better this way.
So why do people make these anonymous donations? I found an interesting article about the psychology behind it:
Part of it is a domino effect, social psychologist Deborah Serani of Long Island, New York, told ABC News. People with cash to burn see a “pay it forward” case on the news and realize they can also help.
“There is a social contagion factor to this generous kind of behavior, but I think it goes way deeper than that,” Serani said. “On an evolutionary level, generosity has been a key to the survival of the species. What this does is it allows those who are struggling to have some success and as a result we are all better for it.”
Huge tips are also sometimes seen as easy charity and a “quick and powerful way to give,” Serani said.
Random acts of kindness, like paying for the car behind you in a fast food drive-thru line, are common after tragedies, she added.
And since it happened at a Coney, have you ever looked into the history of the coney dog here in Detroit?
