Customer leaves waiter $25k for dental work

A customer left a waiter a $25,000 tip so he could buy himself some new teeth.

Brian Maixner received the staggering sum from Fred Boettcher after he noticed he suffered from dental decay as he served him at the Doo-Dah Diner in Wichita, Kansas.

According to reports, Maixner was always smiling despite suffering from the painful tooth problem and Boettcher, an attorney, wanted to help him.

He told KWCH: "I took one look at this young man and knew he was something special.

"He carried himself with such kindness and confidence with a mouth that looked painful. I was struck by that."

Maixner said: "This man doesn't know me and this is something I could never afford to do for myself. It touched me so much that he cared."
