Police officer leaves pregnant waitress $100 tip along with ‘lovely message’ written on check

A police officer in New Jersey left a heartwarming note for a waitress – along with a $100 tip – after learning throughout dinner that she was pregnant with her first child, according to the server’s father.

Brian Cadigan, of Sewell, N.J., posted the sweet story on Facebook over the weekend, sharing a picture of the officer’s receipt and praising him for his generous act.

“You always hear about how bad the police are, how they treated you like dirt, how they are on a power trip,” Cadigan began his post. “Yes I am sure there are some bad apples, but most of them are just doing their jobs, they deal with the worst of society every day and have to keep going back [every day] and deal with it all over again.”

Cadigan then went on to give thanks to the police, in general, for the things they do that “most people will never know about” before writing about the story of his daughter’s run-in with the officer who walked into the Lamp Post Diner in Gloucester Township on Friday.

“My daughter is a waitress at a local diner, she is also 7 months pregnant and working still to save as much money as she can,” Cadigan wrote, saying that the young woman attended to the lone, “pleasant” officer who came in alone for lunch.

When he was finished, Cadigan said the officer signed the check and “left her a $100 tip on a $9.00 ticket and the note simply said ‘Enjoy your first, you will never forget it.’”

“What a wonderful person to not only leave a VERY generous tip, but a lovely message,” he wrote. “I don’t know you [Mr.] Police Officer, but you made my little girl cry, and made her year.

“Thank you, I always had the utmost respect for Officers, but you went above and beyond not just an officer, but a beautiful human being. God Bless.”

The waitress’ dad said the police officer made his daughter’s “year” after leaving the amazing note following lunch at the Lamp Post Diner in Gloucester Township, N.J.

Cadigan has since confirmed to news that the officer who left the tip would like to remain anonymous.
