What Outback Steakhouse Workers Wrote On A Cop’s Receipt Has Everyone Saying They Need….


Four Louisiana police officers were hungry and decided to go to Outback Steakhouse to eat dinner. What they didn’t know was that as soon as they walked in the door, the manager and server noticed their uniforms and planned to send them a special message on their receipt.

Now, they regret ever doing it! 

On the 29th of October, manager Arline Wood and her server, Zoe Rao, saw four officers enter the restaurant and sit down to order dinner.

Wood and Rao conferred and quickly decided they had to express their opinion as citizens, to let the police know how they felt about what was happening in their community.

When the officers finished their meal, Wood and Rao acted, dropping the bill on the men’s table, with a handwritten note they thought no one would ever expect.

When the officers, who are actually regulars at Outback, received the receipt, they saw that their $67 dinner was on the house. Their server had instead drawn a smiley face and written, “Be safe! “Thank y’all for y’all’s service! Enjoy y’all’s meal on us!”


Although we’ve seen acts of kindness like this before (remember when that waitress picked up the tab for a cancer patient’s bill, or when Buffalo Wild Wings paid the bill in honor of a fallen soldier?), server Rao and manager Wood have been exceedingly humble.  When word got out that their act of kindness went viral, they thought the publicity was a little too much and wished their act had stayed quiet.

“I got a phone call early in the morning and I was like what are you talking about?” Wood told the reporters. “People were calling me and then we saw it on Facebook, then it’s on this one and that one, and we didn’t do it for this publicity, because Lord knows I don’t like all this publicity.”

Big kudos to these women for showing an excellent example of how to thank our law enforcement officers, who volunteer to go out and face evil every day so that we don’t have to!
