Waterville, Maine (AP) - Employees at Silver Street Tavern in Waterville, Maine were expecting a typical weekend night on Saturday. Instead, they were shocked to find out that one couple who had dinner at the restaurant left them a $2,000 tip on their $48.76 bill.

The Portland Press Herald reports that the couple left a manager with only one instruction: to split the tip among the staff.

Samantha Clark, who waited on the couple, described them as an “older gentleman and his wife,” and she has no idea why they chose to leave such a generous gratuity but she was grateful because it was almost enough to pay her light bill.

The 21-year-old server said the couple was friendly and easy to wait on. However, at one point, the man told her someone took his wine glass by mistake. The bartender brought him a new drink, but Clark became worried when the gentleman asked to speak to a manager.

Instead of complaining about an issue, the anonymous man asked the manager to transfer their bill from the table to the bar so they could cash out.

“That’s one of the coolest conversations I’ve ever had with a table,” the manager told Clark, but wouldn’t reveal any further details.

Later in the night, the news was shared on Facebook. “So awesome, we had to share!” the post read. “Thank you to the kind gentleman who came in for dinner tonight and had such a great experience that he left a $2,000 tip, to be divided among all the employees who were working the shift. Now we can pay most of our light bills”

    whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.

    two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
