SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A slow shift at work turned out to be one a Salt Lake City waitress will never forget.

Bre Snow left work at The Bourbon House last week thousands of dollars richer thanks to a group of Michigan football fans in town for a game against Utah.

A typical night at work for Bre usually comes at the end of a long day.

“Sometimes they can be really good. Sometimes they can be really bad,” said Snow.

But Thursday night, she likely had one of her best. “I was checked out for the night, like that’s how late they came in,” said Snow.

She served the table of customers who in return gave her more than she could have imagined.

“It was more than a pick me up,” added snow.

After serving rounds of drinks and food, waiting for Snow at the table was a receipt with a $500 bill and a $3,000 tip.

“They’re like we want to give this to you. We want to make your day and it did and I started tearing up,” said Snow.

The group snapped this photo and pointed snow to an Instagram page for the user “tipsforjesus” where similar moments have been captured at restaurants all around the country.

“After working so hard to get just a great payoff from it just really touched me and I really am grateful,” said Snow.

For Snow, the gesture was worth as much as the money.

“I’ve always wanted to be one of those people that give. I always wish that I have the capacity to do that. ”

Giving was a reminder after a long day of work of what is truly worth valuing.

“There’s nothing that hits more home, there’s not a word for it, a thank you is not enough.”
