Rosalynd Harris, a waitress at D.C.’s Busboys and Poets restaurant, was over the moon on Monday, after joining in the Women’s March festivities that weekend. Never did she expect what would happen on her first day back at work!
Several men from Texas walked into Busboys and Poets to sit down for a meal. They has a nice conversation with Harris. One of the men, Jason White, is a dentist and complimented Harris on her gorgeous smile. But according to the Washington Post, Harris said
She did prejudge them, by instantly assuming they were in town for President Trump’s inauguration by appearance alone, even though by that point the signature red baseball cap at been tucked away.
But you will never believe what happened after they finished their meal… the photo Harris posted on Twitter is on the next page…
The lovely men from Texas left Harris a $450 tip (on a bill of only $72.60)… that is almost a 625% tip!!! And they wrote a personal message to her that said:
We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless!
If you don’t have chills yet, check out the photo that Harris posted on Twitter…

Harris told The Washington Post:
You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you, but [the customer was] more embracing than even some of my more liberal friends, and there was a real authenticity in our exchange… This definitely reshaped my perspective. Republican, Democrat, liberal are all subcategories to what we are experiencing… It instills a lot of hope.
