Waitress receives awful 'tip' from sexist table: 'The woman's place is in the home'

Cosmopolitan Cosmopolitan 25/10/2016 Catriona Harvey-Jenner

Working in the hospitality industry can be hard enough - there's the long shifts, anti-social hours, customers with shitty attitudes to contend with plus minimal pay - without having to deal with an evidently sexist table taking the notion of a 'tip' quite literally in order to deliver some wholly unnecessary 'advice'.

But that's what one poor waitress from South Carolina in the States had to deal with on a recent shift at the restaurant she worked at. The unnamed server had just finished serving the table of two when the couple left the restaurant without tipping. But moments later they returned to leave a napkin with a note on it.

Here's what it read (with a load of spelling and grammar errors edited out):

"Dear (name omitted),

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)"
