OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A customer stunned the staff at Fentons Creamery in Oakland with a generous tip. When we say generous, we mean a 1,580% tip.

The kind customer's identity is a mystery to us all, but it sounds like the restaurant staff knows who she is.

"She said she was just happy that we are still open. Amazing. And WOW," Fentons wrote on Facebook. "WOW" is right.
