Take a deep breath from all the contentiousness of this primary and let this nice story sink in.

Via NBCNews:

A customer eating alone at a Texas restaurant left a big surprise behind for an 18-year-old waitress — a $1,000 tip.

Alesha Palmer says she was so stunned by the gift she began crying in the middle of Vetoni's Italian Restaurant in Gun Barrel City, a small community about 50 miles southeast of Dallas.

The high school senior told Tyler television station KLTV that she was serving a couple she knew last weekend and they asked about her college plans. She says she told them her parents would be helping her pay for it.

Stories like this renew my faith in humanity. Maybe it's time we all tried an act of kindness instead of yelling at each other on the internet. :)
