St. Petersburg, Florida – Local restaurant servers are getting a “Christmas bonus” from certain customers this year.
A St. Petersburg travel insurance comparison site called, Squaremouth, is recognizing exceptional customer service and has selected 20 servers to give $1,000 tips this year.
10 News went to lunch with them on Thursday and witnessed one server get the biggest tip of her life.
Ally Carr works hard to give the perfect customer service.
“Oh, it’s tough every day,” she says.
Walking into the Vinoy restaurant, Courtney Pechart is carrying more than a sleigh full of toys for Ally, her favorite server.
Before Ally could even bring them their check for lunch they had a black envelope waiting on the table for her.
“Hi Ally. I don’t know if you remember me but I wanted to give you this as a thank you. I was here a couple months ago and you waited on me and you provided excellent customer service. I just wanted I give you this,” says Courtney as she present Ally with an envelope.
Ally could not stop crying tears of joy.
“You really stuck out in my mind and I think you are really deserving of this,” Courtney tells her.
And Ally being the giving server she is, is giving the money away.
“It pretty much meant everything in the world. I’m probably going to get a little crib for my baby niece,” Ally tells us.
