Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

It’s Not That He Left A $100 Tip, But It’s The Message He Wrote On Facebook That’s Going Viral

A single father from Utah decided to take his son to a hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant. Because it was one of his regular eats, he noticed that the place had hired a new waitress. besides finding her attractive, Sean Whalen couldn’t shake the feeling that something about her was familiar.

When it clicked, he reached into his pocket and took out the thing he had been holding close the whole night.

Although the restaurant appeared to be seedy from the outside, Whalen swears it has got the best Chinese food in Utah. The Great Wall, which is located in a shopping plaza, was not new to him. But this waitress brought Sean Whalen back to a very dark part of his past. A time he did not want to revisit, especially around his young son.

When he was his son’s age, Whalen’s parents split up. Then his father descended into violence, so his mother left taking Whalen and his brother with her. From then on, he was raised exclusively by his mother.

To make ends meet, his mom worked multiple jobs and was forced to leave the boys home alone for much of the day. They got in trouble, but their mother was always there for them – and with a prayer.

“I can only fathom what those conversations were like between her and God,” he wrote on Facebook. “I can only fathom the amount of tears that poured down this sweet woman’s face as she pleaded with God for a break.”

Now, the cycle has repeated. Whalen is a single father and shared a terrible relationship with his son’s mother. But he does not want to pass that legacy on to his son. So he’s trying to raise the boy right.

Seeing this waitress at the Chinese joint reminded Whalen of his hard-working mother.

“The owners are Chinese. The workers are Chinese. And this little white waitress. She was absolutely fantastic and kept complimenting my son on his manners.”

Then he realized what he could do…

“It tore my heart out. I thought of my mom, and I saw the same hustle in this woman that I saw in my mom. A single mom. Maybe by choice. Maybe not. But working on a Wednesday night to ensure she can put food on the table and shoes on the kids feet. Not for opulence. Not for status. But to live. To hopefully be able to provide the things for her kids that will put a smile on their face. I empathized for her. I felt her pain. I kept thinking of my mom and how difficult it is for a single woman to go from home maker, to bread winner. I can’t even begin to understand what that must be like for some moms.”

When the check came, Whalen did what he could to return the favor. To pay it forward. It was a small gesture that he dedicated to his mother’s hard work when raising him.

He reached into his pocket and slapped the $100 bill onto the table.

“I know my tip won’t pay her rent. I know my tip won’t pay for kids braces. I know my tip won’t keep the fridge full. But I hoped tonight in some way it might put a smile on her face, and she can go home to her babies happier than when she left them.”

“I have been blessed beyond measure, and my mother paved the way for my persistence.”
