GREENVILLE, S.C. — A South Carolina waitress was appalled after she received a tip on a napkin from a couple that read “a woman’s place is in the home.”

The incident occurred on Oct. 13 when the waitress, who chose to remain anonymous, had just finished serving the pair. They initially left the restaurant, but walked back in and left a note on the table before walking back out again.

The couple, who the waitress said was more than polite during their visit, made her friend so mad that she submitted a photo of the napkin to WHNS.

The napkin read:

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)

“I felt mortified, embarrassed, humiliated even. I felt hurt, and a bit heartbroken,” the waitress said, according to her friend. “It is a bit disheartening and discouraging that things like this happen at this day and age.”
