Professional waiter experts

Tennessee couple tips big at restaurants. Here’s why

Jeanie and Ken Tucker at their home hold high school graduation photographs of their son's Alex, left, and Hayden, right, on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2022, in Readyville, Tenn. The Tuckers' two sons have passed away - Alex in 2013 and Hayden in 2020. The couple tries to honor their sons by leaving large tips at restaurants because their son Alex was a waiter before he died.

MURFREESBORO — The waiter’s knees buckled just a bit. He held his hand around his heart.

A broad smile broke across his encounter, and he hustled to explain to a hostess what experienced just transpired. The waiter and the hostess high-fived in celebration.

Tuesday night at The Boulevard Bar and Grille in Murfreesboro, a waiter received a $100 tip from a couple who, following paying out their bill, quietly slipped out as a result of a facet exit ahead of he could display his appreciation.

They did not see his reaction, and that’s just the way they prepared it.

These times, following so much tragedy in their life, Jeanie and Ken Tucker guard their emotions carefully.

They have been via way too much soreness, and they like to spread just a very little little bit of pleasure without generating a scene.
