There was a note also attached to Brendan’s tip. It read: “You’re doing a great job as a server. I don’t know what your hopes and dreams are in this life, but I hope this tip helps. My hope is that people were more peaceful to each other. The world can be so negative; I commit random acts of kindness to let others know there can be another way.”
