Denny’s waitress gifted $4K tip says restaurant is withholding her money

A Tennessee waitress at Denny’s is up in arms after her employer allegedly refused to hand over an exceptional tip that she received from a customer.

According to a local station FOX affiliate, waitress Shikira Edwards was overjoyed when, after working at the restaurant in Memphis for the last three years, her manager informed her that a customer had left her a tip for a whopping $4,451.61.

“It’s just such a blessing to have good people like that that are still here and that God did answer my prayers, because he knows what I go through,” she told the network last month. “For someone to look at me and bless me in that way, in that way shape or form, there’s no blessing too high or too low for God, and I appreciate her so much.”

Unfortunately, in the three weeks since that interview, Edwards still hasn’t received her money. Han Kim, the owner of the Winchester Road Denny’s, sent an email to the station explaining that he fears the customer made a mistake by entering a huge tip with their debit card.
