What? You Want Your Tip Back?
If you do a good job, you should get a good tip, right? Let's say you work for Notre Dame University's catering department, and you earn a tip of $29.87. Such was the case for Sara Gaspar. As luck would have it (good luck, initially - now, not so good), per The South Bend Tribune:

Gaspar ... says she tried to alert the university about the large sum that showed up in her bank account, but that when her messages [at least 3 of them] weren't returned, she decided it was meant to be.
