She`s only required to claim up to minimum wage. Say she makes $2.13/hr. She`s only required to claim $5.12/hr, technically.

When I delivered pizza, I never claimed poo because I made above minimum wage. IRS never said a thing.

She could always just say she passed it around to everyone who works there. It would be hard to prove who got what. I doubt the IRS will worry about $500 anyway. If you earn less than $600 from one source you don`t even have to claim it.

According to the news, she shared the money with the kitchen and wait staff, you cynics.

Am I the only one who is amazed in today`s day and age where seeing this a week ago on the super-hyper-global-meganets means this is completely old news a week later?

My father, but dogs are not to someone, they are creature born to give love, this is the real thing dogs are maded for. They decide who to give love and is forever. Bad dogs are only fault of the humans.

it should`ve gone to 10 waiters in the amount of $50

its funny that she said "I`m like in the movie pay it forward," yet, she will not do anything charitable with that money (most likely).

sorry piper, im not the type to beg others for money just to turn around and give it away to a random person whom i do not know if need or deserve it.
If i put this same request in my will I`d at least leave the money in there as well. and i also wouldn`t do it for the "internet fame" or attention.

@MacGuffin...

It may be legal where your from, but here in the good ol` US of A it doesn`t work like that... We get to keep our tips...

That whole statement you made was in vain...

"he wanted you to have it" [despite the fact he never met you and you have absolutely no idea who he is].
this is just about the stupidest thing i`ve seen lately. if he had been giving away his own money its one thing, but the fact that its money raised from donations makes it nothing all that great or special. i can go around all day donating other peoples money too. especially to those that don`t really deserve it.

Nice gesture. But a shame that their employer is legally able to use that $500 tip to partially-fund said waiting staff`s minimum wage, with them getting nothing extra for themselves. Generally tips only help cheapskate employers pay even less towards the cost of their staff than they would have to usually. Ask any waiter/waitress directly whether any tip will go to them or to their employer. You may be surprised at what they tell you. They`re not allowed to volunteer the information that it goes to their employer, but they probably will tell you if asked. In the vast majority places, tips aren`t simply passed on to waiting staff as those who leave tips probably expect and intend. I generally ask them if their employer will get the tip, and if they tell me they do I ask them their name and write a cheque out for the same amount as I would have left, but make the cheque out to them personally so it goes to the person I intended.

I know his family were doing what he wanted by giving the money away to the server but it just seemed really patronising when he was talking to that waitress at the end. It`s not like the money was even their brother`s or theirs... they asked for it on a website - it just seems a bit wrong to me that, if you want to give money to the servers in places, why not just set a website up asking for people to tip better in future? why the need to keep collecting money off strangers and then giving it away in $500 bundles in your dead brother`s name?
