16-year-old Ryheem Lumpkins works as a cashier at a pizza place in Missouri, and doesn’t let his physical limitations keep him down. He was born with a birth defect where both arms never fully formed. But he has a great attitude and says he’s proud of who he is. Back in April, a random customer named Robert Samay tipped him five bucks. And cashiers don’t usually get tips, so he was really grateful for it. And his great attitude obviously made an impression, because Robert decided to stop back in this week . . . to tip him an additional $2,500. Ryheem says he’s been saving up for his first car. Now he can get it a lot sooner than he planned.
