A glass of water in a restaurant is usually free, but a generous dinner decided that two glasses of water asked for a generous tip.
A mysterious patron who later identified himself as a popular YouTube vlogger left a $ 10,000 tip at Sup Dogs in Greenville, North Carolina, on Saturday.
The customer came in, ordered two glasses of water and then left abruptly.
The waitress, Alaina Custer, was surprised to return to the table and find $ 10,000 in cash, according to WNCT-TV.
Custer took most of the money in cash, while the rest was divided among the other waitresses in the restaurant.

"Good people keep doing good things these days, so I thought it was great," said owner Bret Oliver.
"I've seen some really important advice, but not for $ 10,000, this was unexpected, once in a lifetime, it will never happen again in my life."
