$500 tip left at IHOP

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Forget a 20% tip, an elderly couple left more than 1,000% for their waitress at a Coeur d'Alene IHOP.

Their tab was only $46 but they left an extra $500 for waitress Rhonda Poole.

The manager confirmed the amount with the couple before they left the restaurant. A local paper reports the couple asked the manager to wait until they cleared the parking lot before telling the waitress.

Poole says she'll pay her bills and maybe buy some Christmas presents.
