The waitress who received the $4,000 tip, Tori Locher, says the surprise cash comes after just a few months on the job. She says she started working at the diner after the pandemic led to her salary as a teacher being cut.

The customer who gave the tip goes by David. Locher tells FOX 5 he said he works in the financial industry.

Silver Diner says since Locher started, she has had several regular customers who request her section.
