Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -Three waitresses at an Illinois restaurant got a big surprise when a customer handed them back more than just an empty plate.

The customer, who the restaurant is keeping anonymous, had overhead the waitresses’ conversation about school, loans and expenses, and decided to act.

She gave each of the girls $5,000

Two of the waitresses have school on their minds, and one is hoping to someday pay it forward.

Waitress: "I work two jobs and I have a little boy at home so maybe spend more time with him and do more things with him and get ahead of myself. I hope that one day I have the amount to do the same thing to somebody else."

All three of the women are extremely grateful.
