Smiles are contagious. People who always smile tend to bring a certain feeling of joy to the people around them that they are often considered a ray of light amidst the world’s unending doom and gloom.
Michelle Bozeman just cannot stop smiling. As a waitress at a busy diner in Napavine, Washington, Michelle remains cheerful to the customers, keeping a sweet smile on her face while working hard and serving good food for 20 years.
Fortunately, her efforts did not go unnoticed as a mystery couple left her a generous tip – a whopping $3,000 for her hard work and constant beaming grin.
Michelle Bozeman received a $3,000 tip for smiling
According to TODAY, Michelle’s generous tippers left her a note at the back of their bill at Napavine’s Ramblin Jack’s Rib Eye restaurant.
“Thanks for smiling. You work hard and the country is in a bad place.”
The note also requested that she pay it forward and do something good for someone else with the money they gave her.
Speaking to TODAY, the 50-year-old waitress and grandmother-of-seven explained that she didn’t notice the tip until after her co-worker pointed it out. By that time, her generous customers had already left the restaurant after paying their modest bill amounting to $44.
“I first found out when [a coworker] said, ‘Do you realize you got $3,000 tip? I looked at it and was astounded,” the waitress said.
She recalled how she had spoken to the couple about her family. As a single mother, she said that she supported all three of her children and seven grandchildren. Bozeman also expressed her love for her job and the people she works with.

Like Michelle Bozeman, a waitress in New York got an anonymous tip of $3,000 on a meager $43.50 bill. The mystery tipper also asked the waitress to pay it forward and left some instructions on what she can do for others.

Texas Teacher’s Touching Gesture For 11th Grade Students Goes Viral On Twitter
There is more to being a teacher than simply helping students learn how to read, write, and solve math problems.
Teachers act as the students’ second parents while they are at school. Although there may be a few who have forgotten this responsibility, there are still many who don’t. In fact, a Clear Springs High School teacher has decided to take things up a notch by offering a touching gesture to his students taking a three-hour-long test.
Brian Johnston, a teacher at the school in League City, Texas, decided to give students a jam-packed snack before they have their Advanced Placement (AP) English exam. Inspired by his co-teacher Vanessa Seghers, Johnston said that he wanted to help the 11th-grade students do well in their test by putting something nutritious in their tummies.
