Alright so forgive me if this topic has already been started but, what are the three weirdest/coolest things someone has dropped into your tip cup? For me it was

1.Chuck E Cheese token
2.$100
3. A small coin shaped piece of metal which had the outline of an angel on top. Above the angel it said "a guardian angel, sent to watch over you"

whaaat? was this at a coffeeshop on the moon? how much did this wedding cost?
It was a small wedding, about 15 people. He paid for the place the wedding was held, a five course meal for everyone, and paid for us to stay at the most amazing B&B for a few days. It was a very nice small wedding, I'm not sure how much he spent because he owned the place that we had it at but still it was a sweet tip. I would say he spent somewhere around $5,000 to 10,000. He also sent a case of really nice wind from his vineyard in South Africa.

My favorite was always the "IOU" notes.
I got a 2 dollar bill once, that was pretty sweet since I happen to collect them. =]
1. Pack of really amazing cigarettes that actually I switched to later.
2. Q-tips
3. Whole Foods Coupons
4. A fake old Chinese coin that I superstitiously carried around with me for like, a week, for "good luck"

I should probably start collecting them. Nothing odd ever ends up in our tip jar, but we have a regular that gets a large coffee every day and ALWAYS pays with odd currency - a quarter plus either a $2 bill, 2 Sacajawea dollars, 2 Susan B Anthony dollars. Same thing every time, and he doesn't take change, so he is in and out in literally 30 seconds. I've timed it. Nice guy though.

My aunt dropped some sort of Mexican coin in there several months ago - about the same size as a quarter, but with a gold center. We leave it in the jar for luck, and have actually caught someone using it to buy his coffee. He reached in when we weren't looking and didn't notice it wasn't a quarter. Cashier: "Hey, that's funny, we have one just like this in the tip jar" Customer: "Not anymore".
