Talk about a good night on the job - a Washington state waitress was working over the weekend when she got a $3,000 tip.

The waitress, Michelle Bozemen, got the tip while working at the Rib Eye restaurant south of Seattle.

On the back of the $44 bill, the customer wrote, "thanks for smiling. You work hard and the country is in a bad place."

The stranger also requested that Bozemen do something good for someone else.

Bozemen has been a waitress for more than 20 years to support her three kids as a single mom.

Regulars say that noone was more deserving.

Bozemen also shared some of the tip with coworkers and plans on doing work around the house and spoiling her 7 grandchildren.

She is also planning on using the rest of the tip to pay for a trip to Ireland she's always dreamed about.
