MORE THAN TWO weeks after a church congregation in Ohio tipped a pizza delivery driver $1,000, a church in Anchorage has upped the stakes.

Anchorage television station KTVA reports that Ken Felber has been a pizza delivery driver for 14 years. When he delivered a pizza to Chugach Covenant Church on Sunday, the pastor asked him what was his best-ever tip.

When he replied $100, pastor Dan Krause asked him, “How does a tip of $1,900 (€1,600) sound?”

Felber was very mindful of his heavenly surroundings and replied: “Oh, heck no!”

He says it’s the coolest thing that’s ever happened to him.

Krause says this was an opportunity to do something small that would really have a big impact on somebody’s life.

Felber has no plans to splurge since he needs new snow tyres and has medical expenses.

But he does plan to take his wife out for a good spaghetti dinner.
