Texas Waitress Serves Grumpy WWII Veteran For Seven Years – Lawyer Delivers Fifty Thousand Dollar Tip A Week After His Death

Anyone who works in food service knows you deal with unhappy customers now and then. Sometimes, a grumpy customer could become a repeat customer. Even when serving this same customer year after year, the person remains somewhat aloof and gruff.

In Brownsville, TX, a waitress named Melina served a rather grumpy customer named Walter for about seven years. According to NBC, the 89-year-old veteran of World War II wasn’t always the easiest patron. He complained about the food and service regularly. His demeanor wasn’t a happy one.

Melina, however, never showed any anger or displeasure with Walter. She consistently served him with a smile. Amazingly, Walter would respond to the smile with his smile.
