Would you leave a $500 tip?
When Aaron Collins died last week, he had outlined three things he wanted to happen when he died: repay his parents whatever he may have owed them, to give money to the homeless and to leave “an awesome tip” for a waiter or waitress. “I’m not talking about 25%. I mean $500 for a … pizza,” Collins apparently wrote in his will. This week, his family made that last wish come true at a pizza parlor near their Kentucky home. His brother Seth videoed the event which has since gone viral (it’s posted below), prompting several people to donate money so the family can dole out more giant tips in an amazing act of kindness.
What do you think of this story? What would your final wish be?

I think it’s very neat that his family chose to honor his wish. I would do it for my family.

Right now in my life, the most I’d ever consider donating/tipping at a time is 100$, but maybe later on in life, if I’m not in debt/working-for-life kinda living, I’d tip a lot bigger.

Hell yeah. You never know if the person you leave the big tip to needed it to have enough to pay their bill or something. If I ever become wealthy, leaving big tips is something I would love to do.
