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.

People Describe The Real Reason They Cut Ties With Their Best Friend

Friendships are one the most important and intimate connections young people make. Friends are the people you are close to, who you grow up with, and who are always there for you when you need them.

A majority of people have best friends. That's the one friend who you trust and love above everyone else. The one who has proven he'll always be there for you and the one you're ready to drop everything for.

However, not all friendships are meant to last. Sometimes, one or both of you will change. Other times, you'll just drift apart. And sometimes, the friendship will end because of malicious actions. Redditors seem to have a lot of those stories!

People Describe How The Smallest Amount Of Internet Fame Went To Someone's Head

Thanks to the internet and social media, it's never been easier to become famous.

Indeed, some people have used social media to such an effect, that they are as or more well known than any number of movie stars.

But others might have put something on the internet just for fun, unaware that they had a viral sensation on their hands ("Charlie bit my finger" anyone?).

Some people soak in this unexpected fame for a moment or two, and then let it pass as they go on with their lives.

Others, however, might enjoy being unexpectedly famous, and will relish in their unexpected celebrity for the rest of their lives.

No matter how small an audience their internet fame reached.
