(Scroll down for video) Two hard-working restaurant owners were happy to see that their satisfied customer gave a large tip to their employee.

The waiter was also overjoyed over the $1,088 tip on the $60 order.

The waiter said that he heard stories of customers leaving large tips but never $1,088. However, his joy did not last long, as the customer returned to the restaurant the next day, and asked for his money back.

Bee Anantatho and her husband Surachai Surabotsopon opened Thailicious, a restaurant in Edgewater, Colorado, a few years ago, and they have a lot of satisfied customers.

Many customers give nice tips, but when Anantatho saw the big tip, she told the waiter to hold on to it in case the customer returns.

She was right, as the customer returned and asked the owners for his money. He explained that he was drunk the night before and when he woke up in the morning, his wallet was empty.

Anantatho and Surabotsopon explained to the customer that he placed his money in the check and he left. The waiter found the check while clearing the table.

The customer apologized for his actions, and the money was returned to him. The customer left a $100 bill, $60 for his food and $40 for tip.
