A man has delighted Reddit users by sharing a video of himself surprising drive-thru workers with unexpectedly large tips.

Footage of a man - whose name is Stuart - visiting a number of drive-thrus and delighting workers with big tips was posted to Reddit on September 3.

The heartwarming video was posted in the 'Make Me Smile' subreddit, and it achieved its aim, garnering 108K upvotes and thousands of comments, at the time of writing.

In the video, all of the workers, when asked about the side of tip that they expect, say tiny amounts that mostly come to no more than $2.

Watch the video below: 

However, instead of tipping them what they think their service is worth, Stuart gives them ten or 100 times more than this number.

In some instances, he even asks the servers, many of whom are students, what their GPA is and then multiplies that by ten.

Needless to say, the student workers are delighted by his unsolicited generosity, with one saying "Are you serious?!" and another remarking, "You have no idea how much this means."

Another implied that Stuart's kindness meant even more because of the ongoing pandemic, which has had a devastating impact on the service industry, saying: "We really appreciate that, it's been crazy the last few months."

Reacting to the wholesome video, one Reddit user wrote: "My brother tips big at drive-thrus, but he usually turns it into a bribe for extra sauces."

A second added: "If I had the means I would do this all day, every day [sic]."

A third wrote: "I enjoy tipping people who aren't usually tipped.

"I tip my trash collectors, the recycling guys, the mail carrier etc [sic] Everyone who helps me out personally just by doing their job.

"I also think they do an even better job for me afterward but that's not why I do it."

Meanwhile, a fourth wrote: "The large amount of crap they have to deal with for such a small hourly wage, they deserve it."
