VICTORVILLE (CBSLA.com) — A waitress’ note to a patron who picked up the tab for an elderly couple at a restaurant in Victorville has gone viral.
On Wednesday morning, Kirsten Kinzle paid for a couple’s $30 breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe because she thought her loud party was ruining the duo’s peaceful time together.
“You just see people sometimes that just look like a great couple and they really loved each other,” Kinzle said.
Server Stephanie Miller then wrote Kinzle a note that said she did an amazing thing because the older man recently lost his brother.
“I instantly started crying,” Kinzle said. “I just hope it made them for just a moment happy with that amount of sadness.”
Miller was also having an emotional day because it had been a year to the day that someone she knew had passed away.
“I knew that if I tried to tell her the story myself I would probably start crying like a baby,” Miller said.
The note and story are a hit on Facebook with more than 1,500 likes.
“It really lets you see that there are truly, truly caring people out there now,” Kinzle’s sister said.
