MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A big tipper is spreading wealth and joy in the city of Madison.  A customer at Vasillio's Greek restaurant left at $1,000.00 tip Thursday.  Waitress Sarah Simmons was the lucky recipient of the big tip.  She was surprised and elated at the generous gesture.

Simmons says the man filled out his credit card information, and was leaving the restaurant when a co-worker spotted all the zero's on the receipt.  They asked the man if it was right, and he said yes, and that he wanted it to be a surprise.

"I'm still in shock, this is hard to believe. I think it's going to take a little while to register", says the lucky waitress Sarah Simmons.  Simmons says the largest tip she ever received was $100.00, but that was from a large group.

Owners of the restaurant say the customer has been there before and he wants to remain anonymous.  The total for his meal was $31.94.
