Georgia pastor shocks pregnant Waffle House waitress with $12G tip after learning special detail about baby

What’s in a name?

A Georgia pastor recently gave a Waffle House waitress the surprise of a lifetime after raising a $12,000 tip for the pregnant server, after learning that the woman’s unborn child will have the same name as his late son.

Bishop Eusebio Phelps ordered an All-Star breakfast special from a Stockbridge location of the diner chain last week, and was struck by server Hannah Hill’s kindness, Fox 5 reports.

“She was so nice over the telephone, and when I got there I paid for my food and I told her to keep the change,” Phelps told WXIA-TV. “And then when I looked at her, I asked if she was pregnant — she said yes so at that time I was just really urged to give her the rest of the money that I had in my wallet, which was around $40. And so I gave her the $40 and I told her that I just wanted to be able to bless her so she could buy something for the baby.”

With just a few weeks to go until her due date, Hill revealed that she planned to name her unborn son Samuel.

Phelps, the leader of New Faith Christian Church, felt that it was a divine sign. His son Samuel died in Atlanta seven years ago, and the anniversary is coming up soon.

"We are so appreciative of the kind gesture made by Bishop Phelps and all of the others who contributed on behalf of our Associate, Hannah Hill," a rep for Waffle House told Fox News.

“I went home, I told my wife what happened… I was like, ‘Listen I wanna raise a thousand dollars to give to Hannah so she can buy whatever she needs for the baby,’” the pastor told the outlet.

Moved, Phelps shared Hill’s story on Facebook. Within about a day, supporters raised over $12,000, per WXIA.

Hill, meanwhile, had no idea it was coming.

“I was asleep in the car and my mother-in-law called and said, ‘You’ve got to get down to the Waffle House now,’” Hill told Fox 5.

Arriving at the restaurant, she was surprised to be greeted by cheering customers and a check for the generous gratuity during what Phelps called “a surprise baby shower.”

According to Hill, already a mom of one, the tremendous tip will be life-changing.

“Makes me wanna get back in church," Hill said of the chance encounter, and serious surprise.

“I had a lot going on, and I don’t really pray that often,” she told WXIA. “I’m not necessarily that religious, I wasn’t really raised in the church, don’t go to church a lot, haven’t cracked open a Bible in forever. But lately I

Olive Garden former waitress reveals restaurant ‘secrets,’ or so she claims in TikTok video

A former Olive Garden employee has gone viral for allegedly revealing restaurant secrets.

Morgan Potter claimed to have worked at the restaurant chain for two years, as she said on TikTok. The video featuring her “secrets” has been viewed more than 750K times as of Friday.

In the video, Potter claims that the training process is “so much fun,” and that during it, staff members taste everything on the menu in order to be able to better describe the food to customers.

She also claimed employees are able to eat unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks during their shifts.

The positives seemingly stopped there, however, as the young woman went on to drop some less-than-favorable claims — including an allegation that the soup, salad and breadsticks weren’t really unlimited, and that “there was definitely a point where [she] would cut people off.”

The “fresh” bread, also wasn’t exactly “fresh,” she alleged, adding that nearly everything on the menu was microwaved. She later allegedly cleared this up, explaining that everything is kept in a heating drawer — not necessarily a microwave.

Her claims were not universally agreed upon by other Olive Garden employees, though.

“OK your [Olive Garden] is totally different from mine,” one person wrote. “All our stuff is made fresh daily and our bread is baked all day.” Another person claiming to work at the chain seconded this statement.

Someone else claimed that the soup, salad and breadsticks were only available to staff members on their break, and cost $1.

A few people did back up Potter.

“Amen girl. I worked at Olive Garden. Everything you said is correct,” one person praised.

Potter is just the latest TikTokker revealing behind-the-scenes “secrets” of popular chain restaurants – though the response is not always great. Last month, a Chick-fil-A employee was allegedly fired for sharing menu hacks on the popular video-sharing platform.
