A Bunch of College Students Pitched In to Tip a Pizza Guy $1,268
What's the most you've ever tipped a pizza guy? Five dollars? Maybe ten if it was a huge order? Whatever it was, a group of college students in Indiana has you beat.
Last Wednesday, a Domino's delivery guy named James Gilpin brought a couple pizzas to Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. The order said to deliver the pizzas to the school's chapel, which wasn't out of the ordinary, so James didn't think anything of it.
But when he got there, he realized the chapel was filled with people and he knew something was up when they asked him to go on stage. That's when he found out that everyone there had chipped in to tip him $1,268!
According to Professor Jim Lo, who organized it, the idea was to show students that when you work together, you can have a huge impact on someone's life. And in this case they did make a huge impact. According to James, he really needed the money to fix his car and pay off some bills. He'll also be able to give his two kids a good Christmas this year.
