A Texas waitress who claimed her employer refused to pass on a mystery diner’s $US2000 ($A2700) tip will take home the money after all. Ms Bauer was left the once-in-a-lifetime tip after she kept apologising to a customer over the weekend for the service “being slow”. Keep working hard!”But she claimed her excitement quickly turned to disappointment when a manager told her they were unable to process tips larger than $US500 ($A670). On Wednesday, the restaurant didn’t respond to a request for comment. Ms Bauer previously told The Post she plans to spend the money on Christmas presents for her two sons aged two and five months.
