A waiter at Patsy's Pizzeria in East Harlem named Armando Markaj, was brushed off by a customer and not tipped...but the woman left something very important to her.

According to WIFR the customer had an issue with the pictures on the wall not including enough women, and she left without tipping. In the process, leaving a cashiers check for $423. 987 in an envelope at her table. Oops.

The owner of the pizza place tracked down the woman who had cashed out her life savings and planned to buy a home with the money. She returned in tears and THEN attempted to tip the waiter, he refused.
