New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas is doing his part pitching in to help local businesses during the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
A bartender at the River Grille in Chatham, N.J., said that the Jets GM has visited the restaurant the last two Sundays, and he used his credit card to pay for a $101 order that was a curbside pickup -- and added a $100 tip.
The bartender’s girlfriend posted a photo on Reddit of the check with the tip, with the last four numbers of Douglas’ credit card crossed out.
“He has [added a $100 tip] the past two times,” the bartender told the New York Post. “I don’t want to scare him off from coming back or anything.”
The bartender said that conversations between the two of them have been at a minimum because they were properly following the social distancing guidelines amid the virus.
“He’s a great guy, very caring, and he takes care of these local businesses,” the bartender told the newspaper. “He was very supportive to me and my pocket as well.”
