SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A husband and wifetipped two different restaurant servers who were working on Thanksgiving $700, KOLR10 reports.

Someone at another table shot a video of the server’s surprised reaction at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Missouri.

Erik Richards told KOLR10 that he and his wife do this every year to spread joy.

“Somebody pay it forward,” Richards said. “I want five people to do the same. Five random people to pay it forward. You know regardless of what’s going on this year, I don’t care. You know, everything has been so divided, so let’s just focus on making it better. So I want five people to pay it forward to somebody and then those five people to pay it forward.”

A manager at the restaurant says the server who received the big tip was working solo for the first time.
