In Greenville, SC, a couple left a poison pill note for their server. They did note her service was excellent, but apparently all her hard work and excellence merited nothing more than a self-righteous helping of shit. Christians. Seriously, this sort of crap – every single one of you Christians knows people who commit this banal act of evil, and do you do anything about it? No. Gosh, you just add so much positivity to the world, don’t ya?
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) –
A South Carolina server said she feels heartbroken and mortified after the tip she received from a couple she had served told her that her place is in the home.
The server who asked not to be identified said she had just finished clearing off the couple’s table after serving them when the couple walked back in and left her a note on a napkin and darted out the door.
What the napkin said angered her friend so much she submitted a picture of the napkin to FOX Carolina. The napkin read in its entirety:
Thank you for your excellent service today – you’re a good waitress.
Here’s your tip:
The woman’s place is in the home. Your place is in the home. It even says so in the Bible. You may think that you’re contributing to your household by coming into work, but you’re not. While you’re in here ‘working’ this is the reason your husband must see another woman 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 handouts to feed your family, how’s about going home and cleaning your house and cooking a hot meal for your husband and children, the way your husband and God intended, and help make America great again. Praying for families and our nation.
Love, (Guests’ last name)
The waitress told her friend that she had never served the couple before and that they were very polite when she waited on them which made the note come as an even bigger surprise.
“I felt mortified, embarrassed, humiliated even. I felt hurt, and a bit heartbroken,” the waitress said to her friend. “It is a bit disheartening and discouraging that things like this happen at this day and age.”
The incident occurred on Oct 13 at a restaurant which the friend wishes not to be identified.
A friend of the server, who was incensed over this nasty treatment, posted a most excellent response on their FB:
“Dear lovely guest,
“You cannot demean a worker that provides a service that you enjoy. Without my coworker, myself, and the countless others females in the service industry, you and others with your same mindset would not enjoy the ’excellent service’ that we provide. May I ask why you were eating out, instead of eating the nice meal that your wife obviously must have prepared for you at home?
“Do you write this lovely note to every female server you have? Every woman who is a single mom supporting her children? Every woman whose husband has passed away and is struggling to make ends meet? Every military wife who is trying to pay bills while her husband is away? And God-forbid, every woman who enjoys working? How dare they, what an outrage! Your server makes $2.13 an hour, and deserved to be paid for the service she provided for you. To someone who comes from a generation that often complains that those younger than him have everything handed to them, you seem awfully entitled.
“Sir, you have no idea about the life your server lives. The server you wrote this to, for example, does her job because she enjoys it, does indeed cook dinner for her boyfriend, and keeps her house immaculate. And if she didn’t? There would be nothing wrong with it.
“So how’s about instead of writing demeaning and hurtful notes to your servers in lieu of a tip, you stay at home and save us all from the experience of waiting on you.
A female server who loves her job, and doesn’t give a rat’s furry behind if you think it’s ’appropriate’ for me to work.”
