Keep an eye out for who you're serving because you might just get the tip of a lifetime. Former NFL player Chad Johnson, also known as Ochocinco, has been sharing pictures of the tips he's leaving at restaurants when he goes out to eat.

And let's just call them "generous."


While some athletes are known for poor tipping skills, Johnson has been very liberal in the extra cash he gives his servers. While that by itself is a neat fact, it's the meaning he ascribes to the numbers that is getting people's attention.

The first of these tips sees him leaving $209 as a tip, to match the receiving yards he had in one game.


The next time, the server seemed to let Johnson borrow his phone to watch some soccer. Three goals earned that server a $300 tip.


While the amounts are great, the meaning can be less than positive. Ochocinco brought up his total yardage with the Patriots for the first of his Austin, TX, restaurants.

276 yards for an entire season isn't great, but translated into a tip on a $91 bill, is exceptional.


Lastly, Johnson left a $540 tip for a lucky server at Gus's World Famous Chicken in Austin, TX. The number references his yards in 2008 with the Bengals.

The "pissed off Mike Brown" comment refers to Johnson openly talking about wanting to be traded during the off season, upsetting the Bengals owner.


All of these receipts ended with the phrase "I love you" and are accompanied by a tweet, "Proverbs 11:25" which says,

"The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself."

People are really digging the generosity.





Others are just trying to figure out how they can get in on this.





A little earlier this year, Johnson made waves after using an Applebee's tablet to leave a $207 tip for his server. He posted a video of him tapping the arrow on the device to increase his tip.

He says at one point,

"My finger cramps, that's when I'll stop."


While the server gives him an out, Johnson assures her he is serious about this. And as we've seen from his other tips, he's very serious about giving back.

There are few things more annoying than when you are seeking advice and someone responds with a boring platitude that helps no one. Believe it or not, if you choose to provide advice, it needs to be specific to the situation and shouldn't be dressed up in trite phrasing. Does saying, "Keep your head up" actually contribute anything if that's all you have to say when someone comes to you in search of a listening ear?

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

Dating is difficult––and truth be told, I don't know how anyone can do it right now, what with a pandemic going on and all. Just the thought stresses me out. Dating is especially hard for people who defy expectations in a heteronormative society. Take bisexuals, for example.
