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's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
