I Felt Like a Millionaire
There was no one around so I decide to put the bill into my wallet for safekeeping. The evening continues on and no one has yet to bring up this lost $10 bill.
So I am on the point of sale machine when I ask this other server how her dinner was last night cause she had dinner with her partner and I was the server. She says it was great but she wishes last night was tonight.
I ask why and she says one of her tables had left her $10 and it was gone. Immediately I pull out my wallet and hand her the ten dollars. The expression on her face well you might have thought I handed her a winning lottery ticket. Needless to say she was very thankful and I felt pretty great as well.
That was one moment in time when I felt like a millionaire.
