Mystery Big Tipper's Identity (Maybe) Revealed
A feel-good story has been circulating on the Internet as of late: Someone posing under the name @TipsForJesus has been leaving $1,000 and $10,000 tips on restaurant bills around the United States. He or she recently struck at Harris Restaurant on Van Ness, leaving server Andy a $1,500 tip on a $468 bill, and has distributed the same monetary goodwill to lucky waiters and waitresses in L.A., Phoenix, and more.
Now the gig is up, maybe. With some detective work, Valleywag has revealed that Mr. @TipsForJesus is probably Jack Selby, a former PayPal VP who made a lot of money when the company went public. It's unclear how Valleywag got the scoop (sounds like through a tipster?) but it seems that the Mystery of the Service Industry Benefactor has been solved for now.
Let's just hope that the reveal of his identity won't stop Mr. Selby from distributing money throughout the lands like a reformed Scrooge McDuck, and that his actions will inspire others to do the same this holiday season.
