Iowa Couple Pays it Forward!

An Iowa couple celebrating their wedding anniversary gave a waiter a $100 tip on a $66 order even though they received “‘terrible service”.

One waiter had to serve 12 tables and be the bartender all by himself. The couple said they waited 20 minutes for water, 40 minutes for an appetizer and an hour for their meal.

Several customers left while another ran up to a friend at the entrance and said not to eat their.

The couple both worked as servers. They left the tip and a note that read, “We’ve been in your shoes. Paying it forward.”

The couple put the receipt on Facebook where it has received over 1 million likes and shared almost 168,000 times.

George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin Make it Official

We’d been waiting and waiting for the pictures from George & Amal’s Venice wedding this past weekend, and finally, the wait is over! See them here.

 

I had two main observations:

1. The new Mrs. Clooney is a classic beauty.
2. Amal’s choice of wedding dress was lovely and she definitely has gorgeous legs, but I was surprised by the length.

This would be a great adventure! Jet Hiking!

In her quest to reach all 50 states, a self-proclaimed “gypsy jet hiker” has hitchhiked through the skies – on a jet, on a plane, on the occasional B17 bomber — without spending a dime! 

Basically, she just hangs out at one of about 14,000 general aviation airports across America, and meets people. After talking to people about her love of flying and traveling, she says that the people she talks to enjoys the conversation and allows her to come on their flights.

The only states she hasn’t visited yet are Utah, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Her goal is to write a book about her experiences and she wants to get her pilot’s license.
