(NEWSER) – A Cracker Barrel waitress in Nebraska received a special tip the other day: $100. But that was nothing compared to the $6,000 in checks the customers also left behind, the Journal Star reports. The customers walked in asking for the restaurant's grumpiest waitress, hoping to make her laugh, but the hostess said they had no grumpy ones. So she gave them the establishment's happiest: Abigail Sailors, an 18-year-old who told the customers about her painful journey through foster care—which started when her parents were badly injured in a car accident.
