A few days ago, Claire Hudson, a 25-year-old waitress at Mac's Grub Shak in Tennessee, received a surprising tip. A customer had ordered hot dogs and beers that totaled under $30, but he tipped $36.

She was confused, but when she saw the note he left on the back of the receipt, she burst into tears:

The customer had wanted to honor his brother Wes by tipping what would have been his age.

It's a little bit sad and a little bit sweet (what we call "heartwarming" in the biz), but the Daily Mail weirdly seemed to think the main thing its readers would want to know is what the guy ate for dinner:

Yum? (via Daily Mail)

They even went to the trouble of digitally enhancing the photo to decipher the contents of the grieving man's stomach.

Now we know, Daily Mail. Now we know. (via Daily Mail)

Um, thanks for letting us know, guys. That really sets the scene.

The restaurant has now reached out to the customer to try to set up a new menu item in memory of Wes, using his favorite hot dog toppings.

We look forward to reading all the mouthwatering details. Now go take a lunch break, Daily Mail reporter!
