“Be kind to everybody.”
This random act of kindness from a stranger in a restaurant left this waiter a “tip” of a lifetime and changed his outlook on life forever!
Meet Brian Maixner. He’s a waiter at the Doo-Dah Diner in Wichita, Kansas and there’s a reason he smiles with his lips closed.
Brian has struggled with serious dental problems for years. His smile is missing teeth and many of the ones he does have were infected. That all changed when attorney Fred Boettcher sat down at his table, who suffered from similar dental problems in the past.
Before he finished his meal, Boettcher (pictured below) went to the diner’s manager, Timirie Shibley, and asked if he could tip $25,000 on top of his meal to ensure Brian could get a new smile.
WOW – can you believe this man’s generosity?!
Boettcher was in the area visiting his daughter and was overcome with a desire to help Brian. Giving Brian this “tip” would change his life forever!
“He said he could tell Brian was a very special person and he wanted to know if Brian would be offended if he offered to pay for his dental issues,” the manager said. “Needless to say, I was floored. I immediately accepted on Brian’s behalf.”
Boettcher said later, “No matter what religion you might be or whether you even believe in an afterlife, the way to be satisfied in your life is to be kind to everybody and be as generous as you possibly can be.”
