Staff at a San Francisco restaurant got a pleasant New Year’s surprise when a customer left a $2,000 tip in the latest in a series of “Tips for Jesus.”
A diner at Tacolicious left the gratuity after paying a bill of just $50.74 on January 2.
A photograph of the receipt was then posted to the ‘Tips for Jesus’ Instagram account.
The generous gesture follows one in Arizona on December 27, where a $11,000 tip was left on a bill of just $420, with a note saying “Tips for Jesus.”
A staff member at Tacolicious told SFgate the tipper “comes in here all the time and he’s amazing. Amazing to the staff.”
The restaurant employee said the gratuity would be shared among the staff.
Many suspect the person behind the Tips for Jesus phenomenon is the former Vice-President of PayPal, Jack Selby.
It has previously been reported that the Tips for Jesus tippers are a collective of wealthy people.
“Tips for Jesus.” is believed to refer to the anonymous person – or people – who regularly leave extravagant tips at restaurants and document their recipients’ joy on an Instagram page.
The page, which has more than 84,000 followers, features the slogan: “Doing the Lord’s work, one tip at a time.” It typically features restaurants in New York and Los Angeles, as well as Phoenix.
In the Arizona incident, an unidentified man initially left a $1,000 tip on a $331.40 bill for drinks and snacks he had shared with a woman at Crudo restaurant.
