"I was thinking I'm really going to need a miracle to pay my bills this month," Muhammad said.

The $1,075 tip happened when Muhammad went to her job that afternoon at Cheddar's restaurant. She served a husband, wife, and their child. They were pleasant to serve and talked with Muhammad. She said the mom and son split a fish taco and the father ordered a country steak. There was nothing that stood out about them. After the left, the bill was turned downward, which usually means to servers they got a bad tip or no tip. To Muhammad's surprise, she found a $1,075 tip written on the receipt.

Khadijah Muhammad wants to thank the nice couple for her generous tip.
