A slow shift at work turned out to be one a Salt Lake City waitress will never forget!

It was a typical night at work for Bre Snow, who works as a server at the Bourbon House.

"This is my second job," said Snow.

Thursday night, she likely had one of her best nights ever. 

"I was checked out for the night," she said. "That's how late they came in."

She started serving a table of customers who in return gave her more than she could have imagined.

"It was more than a pick-me-up."

After rounds of drinks and food, waiting for her at the table was a receipt... it was a $500 bill with a $3,000 tip. 

"They're like 'we want to give this to you. We want to make your day' and it did, and I started tearing up," said Snow. 

The group snapped a photo and pointed Snow to an Instagram page for the user "TipsForJesus" where similar moments have been captured at restaurants all around the country.

"After working so hard to get just a great payoff from it, just really touched me," said Snow. "And I really am grateful." 

For Snow, the gesture was worth as much as the money. 

"I've always wanted to be one of those people that give. I always wish that I have the capacity do do that."
