Michelle Bozeman just can\u2019t stop smiling.\r\nThe 50-year-old waitress at\u00a0Ramblin Jack\u2019s Rib Eye\u00a0restaurant in Napavine, Washington, got a very\u00a0generous tip\u00a0during her shift on Sunday evening. A couple traveling through town added an extra $3,000 \u2014 on a modest$44 bill.\r\n\u201cI first found out when [a coworker] said, \u2018Do you realize you got $3,000 tip?\u2019\u201d Bozeman told TODAY Food, adding that the restaurant was so busy she didn\u2019t see it until the couple was long gone.\r\n\u201cI looked at it and was astounded.\u201d\r\nOn the back of the check was a note that read, "Thanks for smiling. You work hard and the country is in a bad place." The note also requested that she do something good for someone else with the money.\r\nBozeman, who has been working as a waitress for over 20 years, said the couple had asked her about her family and she briefly talked to them about how she had supported her three kids as a\u00a0single mom. She also mentioned to them how much she loved her job and the people she works with.\r\n\u201cThey were just a really nice couple,\u201d she recalled.\r\nTo pay it forward, Bozeman says she plans to share some of the money with her coworkers. She said she also plans to spoil her seven grandkids, who range in age from three to 17 years old.\r\nBozeman and a friend are also planning a trip to Ireland, which they had been talking about for a while, but money issues halted their plans.\r\nAs for what she wishes she could tell the generous strangers who left the tip, Bozeman said she wants them to know much she appreciates it. She told TODAY, \u201cWhat a world of difference it\u2019ll make in my life, and I will definitely\u00a0pay it forward."
