$446 waitress tip: A waitress at Steak ‘N Shake in Indianapolis got a $446 tip on a $6 meal, it was reported.

CeCe Bruce, who got the massive tip on Wednesday morning, said she was surprised with the amount.

“At first I thought, ‘$46?’ And I said, ‘Miss Jo, that’s really generous!'” she said, according to WTHR TV. She was referring to a customer who frequented the establishment.

“When I looked again, I said ‘Oh my gosh Miss Jo, I’m not taking that!’ And she said, ‘Yes, you’re taking it’ and I said no and she said ‘You need to take it’,” Bruce added.

Bruce said that she was having a difficult time with another table before she got tipped.

“Pay bills, pay bills right on time, that’s what I’m definitely going to do,” Bruce said of what she is going to do with the cash.

The restaurant’s general manager, Greer Gooley, told WISH-TV that Bruce deserves it.

“She stays late, comes in early. Whenever we need her, she’s here. So she deserves it more than anyone,” he said. “It just lets servers know that you work hard and it does pay off. There are people out there that [if] you do your job people reward you for it.”
