CeCe Bruce is a waitress at the Steak 'n Shake in Indianapolis, and earlier this week, she received a $446 tip on a bill that totaled $5.97.

The part time college student says she initially thought it was only $46, which by itself would have been a large tip.

The $446 tip is a gratuity of over 7,000 percent. "I didn't think i was worth $400 but, you know, she feels I am," said Bruce.

As for how Bruce plans to spend the money -- she intends to use it to pay bills.
