Waitress Couldn’t Ignore the Things She ‘Overheard’ Two Firefighters Say During Breakfast

A waitress at a New Jersey diner picked up the tab for two firefighters last month after she overheard them discussing how hungry they were — after fighting a huge warehouse fire for 12 hours straight without stopping to eat.

As Oliver Darcy reported, the two men, who stopped at 130 Diner in Delran after a long day battling the New Brunswick blaze, asked their waitress Liz Woodward to bring them the biggest cups of coffee she had.

According to one of the firefighters who posted about what happened online, Woodward, 24, “overheard” them talking over breakfast. “This is what she set down instead of a bill,” Tim Young wrote.

The server wrote Young and the other firefighter, Paul Hullings, a long note.

It read…

“Your breakfast is on me today — Thank you for all that you do; for serving others & for running into the places everyone else runs away from. No matter your role, you are courageous, brave, and strong… Thank you for being bold and badass every day! Fueled by fire and driven by courage — what an example you are. Get some rest.”

Young and Hullings were floored by the good deed.

“Such a selfless and kind act,” Young wrote on Facebook. “I definitely urge my friends to make a trip out and support the business, and if Liz happens to be your waitress, tip big.”

But the story didn’t stop there.
