When Maurice Green went out to dine with his family, he would never have thought that he would end up helping a guy who was in a desperate situation. But this video shows exactly what happened with their waiter that night.
The Don Pablo’s waiter, Johnny, was seemingly having a horrible day in Dallas in December 2016. When Maurice ordered food for himself and his family, Johnny obliged like any waiter would. But what he did not know was that Maurice was watching him from the table, sensing that something was not right.
So, Maurice called him up and asked for his name and how his day was going. Johnny replied that he indeed was facing some personal difficulties. Maurice sympathized with the waiter’s troubles and then did something that completely shocked Johnny.
To Johnny’s surprise, Maurice took out a US$100 bill and offered it as his tip. “I kinda sensed that … I wanna sow into your life,” Maurice said in the video as he took out the money.
Johnny was obviously overwhelmed at the sudden charity he had been blessed with. In fact, he broke out into tears saying how the money would help him meet his car payments. But Maurice was not done with him.
“Keep being who you are, keep being nice, don’t let people frustrate you, because people are not nice, and this family—the Green family—wants to bless you. Merry Christmas,” Maurice said before he moved onto another surprise.
“You know what? Let me do better than that,” and he took out two more US$100 bills and gave them to the Johnny, who understandably couldn’t believe that he got tipped US$300 in a single day.
The video went viral, with some people congratulating Maurice for helping out a poor guy, while others were quick to rebuke him as someone who is only seeking attention.
But his good deed achieved the desired result—Maurice definitely put a smile on someone’s face that day.
