Couple leaves S.C. waitress note as tip: ‘The woman’s place is in the home’

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Thanks for the tip?

Not really.

A South Carolina waitress received a note in lieu of a tip after serving a couple at a local restaurant on Oct. 13. That note was written on a napkin and informed the server that a “woman’s place is in the home… it even says so in the Bible.”

The note said the woman probably thought she was doing what’s “right” by working but opined that doing so was a “disgrace” to her husband’s manhood.

“You should be at home taking care of the household duties,” the note said.

Dear [redacted], thank you for your excelent service today. Your a good waitress.

Heres your tip:

The womans place is in the home. You’re place is in the home. It even says so in the Bible. You may think that your contributing to your household by coming into work, but your not. While your in here “working” this is the reason your husband must see another women on his way home from a long day at his work. Because you should be home taking care of the household duties. You may think what you are doing “working” is right, it is really essentially a disgrace to his manhood and to the American family. So instead of coming to your “job” and looking for hand out’s to feed your family, hows about going home and cleaning your house and cooking a hot meal for your husband and children, the way you’re husband and God intended, and help make America great again. Praying for families and our nation.
