A Server Played Along When A 3-Year-Old Girl Tried To Pay With A Fake Card And Got An Extra Tip

Just a cute lil' story at a local Carrabba's Italian Grill in Indiana this week.

Posted on April 5, 2018, at 4:58 p.m. ET

Wendell Davenport is a 22-year-old from Merrillville, Indiana. He's currently working as a server at a local Carrabba's Italian Grill.

On Tuesday during one of his shifts, he waited on a family with a 3-year-old girl. The little girl tried to take command the whole time and order for the whole table, which Davenport found hilarious and endearing.

"The little girl was talking ever since her family sat down," he told BuzzFeed News.

"She was trying to order the whole meal so I went ahead and let her," he added, laughing.

Davenport played along the whole time. When it was time to give the family their bill, he said the girl tried handing him a fake pink credit card a few times to pay for it all.

"She tried giving me the card twice and I just laughed and smiled at her and said 'I got you,'" he recalled, chuckling.

He said he played along and took her pink "credit card." A coworker then suggested he should draft up a fake receipt for her.

So Davenport drew a custom Carrabba's receipt for the 3-year-old, and even put it in its own check holder.

He said the family left before he got back to the table. But when he did, he opened the little girl's check holder, and discovered the parents had actually left an extra little tip of real cash for him.

"They had left before I could go back and thank them," Davenport said of the parents.

If the parents ever come across this post, Davenport would like to tell them "that precious girl has a bright future."

"Kids love dollar bills and coins," he joked.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Davenport's manager but she's not in 'til later, we're told.
