We’re living in complicated times right now. The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the whole world, their routines, and obviously, the economics; with most local business shutting their doors to prevent the spread of the virus.

However, complicated times often bring the best out of those who can help in some way, as we saw a week ago from Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson of the NFL and most recently, Andre Drummond.

Drummond went out to eat at Che Restaurant at Delray Beach and wanted to chip in and help amid these tough times, so he left the waitress a $1,000 tip on top of his $164.25 check, as the restaurant posted on its Instagram account:

“Today, started off as a slow day at work getting there for my doubled shift. The past week, overall, has been pretty slow of course due to COVID. Restaurants and staff have been struggling, as you can imagine. Little did I know that today I would get a tip no server would guess that they would ever receive when they open that checkbook. I couldn’t describe the amount of appreciation I had/have. It’s so amazing to see people displaying acts of kindness in these uncertain times. This is a story I will never forget, thank you again so much @andredrummondd,” Diaz wrote to thank the Cavs’ big man.

Our waitress, @kaxandra.diaz experience yesterday, “Today, started off as slow day at work getting there for my double shift. The past week, overall, has been pretty slow of course due to COVID. Restaurants and staff have been struggling, as you can imagine. Little did I know that today I would get a tip no server would guess that they would ever receive when they open that check book. Unknowingly, I was seated and served a table with @andredrummondd I had no idea who he was, and hadn’t seen him here before but we @che.delray always welcome our new customers. When I was given the checkbook, I went to put in the tip & information to close the table and I couldn’t believe it. From a $160 check, the tip read $1,000. I was shaking and had tears of happiness after what he left me. I had no idea how to react, I didn’t want to draw attention but at the same time I couldn’t describe the the amount of appreciation I had/ have. It’s so amazing to see people displaying acts of kindness in these uncertain times. This is a story I will never forget, thank you again so much @andredrummondd “ * * * * * * * * * @che.delray wants to thank you for your kindness, it was our pleasure to have you here! We hope you enjoyed your time with us, we wish you the best!

Even though NBA players – and professional athletes as a whole – don’t usually do that kind of stuff and mostly don’t like to get unwanted attention, it’s nice to see that there are some still good people out there willing to reach out and help those who need them the most.

Luckily for a grateful waitress, Drummond’s biggest assist of his career didn’t come on the court.
