Blakely’s Santa quite literally put his money where his mouth is.
“There was a check for $1,000,” Blakely explained.
To say she was touched and appreciative doesn’t begin to describe how she feels.
“So, yeah, there are some nice people left out there,” she said, fighting back tears as she tucked the card back into the envelope. “This thousand dollars tremendously made my Christmas wonderful.”
She said nothing like this has happened at ChiZona’s before.
“I am just blown away,” she continued. “So, there are some good people out there that really care. And I can’t tell these people how much I appreciated this generous gift. … I cried pretty much all day, tears of happiness.”
Blakely said she’s going to use the money to catch up on some bills.
Although she didn’t share her secret Santa’s name, she is truly grateful for his kindness.
“I just want this couple to know that I appreciate it more than words can say,” she said. “And I wish them a very merry Christmas.”
A pathetic customer brags about a $5 tip he and his wife left a waitress because she did not made a mistake – every mistake is a dollar less, according to their ‘tipping game’.
So I took the wife out to dinner last night, and we have always talked about doing this. You put 5 singles out on the table at the beginning of dinner for waiter/ waitress to see. (Don’t say anything to them) if they mess up, you take a dollar away, and so on.
You’ve heard of the legendary Trump Steaks — but there’s a new restaurant on the block in Iraqi Kurdistan.
‘Trump Fish,’ open this week, beckons diners to feast on common carp prepared in traditional Kurdish fashion. Freshly caught from the nearby Duhok reservoir, the fish is slowly baked near open fire for over 1.5 hours before served whole. Considered less popular fare in America, the carp is a common culinary delight in Europe and Asia.
While a small handful of brands have dropped the Trump brand — and the Trump Organization previously resorted to litigation to protect their trademark — in this case, the reasons for imitation are almost certainly stemming from admiration.
Even today, Kurdish outlet Rudaw reported that a Kurdish Peshmerga soldier named his newborn “Trump,” which may be the start of a trend, given that just weeks ago, a Yazidi refugee family also gave their newborn the name of America’s next president.
