Bartender Gets $10,000 Tip on $26 Tab

HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Two weeks ago, one of Cindy Kienow's regular customers left her a $100 tip on a tab that wasn't even half that. This week, he added a couple of zeros.

Kienow, a bartender at Applebee's, got a $10,000 tip from the man _ for a $26 meal _ on Sunday.

"I couldn't move,"Kienow said."I didn't know what to say. He said, `This will buy you something kind of nice, huh?'And I said, `Yeah, it will.'"

Kienow said the man, whom company officials have declined to name, comes in several times a month and eats at the end of the bar. He has always tipped well, she said, usually leaving $15 on a $30 tab.

Then came the $100 tip, followed by the real shocker.

"He usually signs his ticket and flips it upside down,"said Kienow, 35, who has worked at the restaurant for eight years."But this time, he had it right-side up and said `I want you to know this is not a joke.'"

It's not, company officials agreed.
