Waitress Receives 'Tip' Telling Her 'Woman's Place Is In The Home'

One restaurant employee received a handwritten letter spouting offensive, antiquated conservative values, and now it’s on blast across the internet.

It may be the 21st century, but much of America still hasn’t caught up.

The angry friend of a female server in Greenville, South Carolina submitted a snapshot of a napkin note the server received on October 13 to FOX Carolina. The letter was from a couple she had just waited on at a Cracker Barrel, and the content is dispiriting, to say the least.

The "tip" reads:

"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.


(Guests' last name)"

The waitress is apparently humiliated, recalling the couple as well-mannered — which made the message all the more shocking.

"I felt hurt, and a bit heartbroken," she told her friend.

The waitress had never served the couple before, and here’s to hoping the only thing they’re served in the future is the swift hand of feminist justice. This note, after all, perfectly exemplifies the backwards, misogynistic standards still upheld in a few key regions of this country, and for the benefit of all womankind, it’s time to lay them to rest. Permanently.
