NAPLES, Fla. – A waiter in Florida went the extra mile and ended up getting a $1,500 tip.

The Naples Daily News reported that Carlos Perez was recently waiting on a couple at Pazzo’s in downtown Naples, Florida.

A man asked him for a dish that wasn’t on the menu and Perez delivered it. The customer then bought beer for the whole staff.

But it was what happened next that brought the waiter to tears.

“He slides me over the server book, the check book, and he opens it. And there it is: $1,500. I thank God for you and for what you’ve done and again it couldn’t have come at a much better time, so I’m eternally grateful wherever you are,” Perez said.

The restaurant is not releasing the identity of the couple, but did say they are from Houston and own a season home in Florida.
