It seemed like a server hit the tipping jackpot when a customer left no less than $1088 in a tip last weekend, the Denver Post reported.  This happened at Thailicious in Edgewater, and owner Bee Anantatho was surprised but also reluctant to rejoice in teh generosity of this guest. She was right. He returned the next morning and asked for his money back blaming his alcohol consumption for the free-handed behavior.

‘I'm sorry, I was drunk,' the man said. The Thailicious staff took him at his word and returned the cash, most of it $100 bills that he probably mistook for $1 bills.
