For years, Brian Maixner, a waiter at the Doo-Dah Diner in Wichita, Kansas, had several missing teeth as well as tooth decay, KWCH12 reported. However, the single father was unable to afford care. This all changed when customer Fred Boettcher, who was struck by Maixner's upbeat attitude, approached the diner's owner with a request to leave the waiter an incredible tip -- dental care valued at thousands of dollars.
"I was in shock. I was trying to wait on their table, but I was crying a bit," Maixner told Today.com of his initial reaction to the news.
