veryone should have to work in the service industry at some point in their life, preferably in a restaurant, so that they can understand what those workers go through on a daily basis.
They deal with people who couldn't care less that they make $2/hour and depend on the kindness of strangers to bring home some bank.
One such worker was a waitress in Greenville, South Carolina, who received the very worst kind of "tip" from customers: no money, but rather unsolicited advice in the form of a long note scribbled on a napkin.
Oh, but it gets worse.
In case you can't read the writing, here you go:
So to summarize, “a woman’s place is in the home” and not out contributing to society when she could be doting on her husband at home.
Not only that, but even though she’s working hard, they’re not going to reward her for her work with a tip — only prayers for her selfish soul.
The server, who wanted to remain anonymous, told WYFF News that the customers were a couple in their mid-50's who had been otherwise friendly to her throughout the meal.
“I felt mortified, embarrassed, humiliated even,” she said. “It is a bit disheartening and discouraging that things like this happen at this day and age.”
Luckily her co-worker, Elizabeth Neal, has her back, and posted a photo of the note to Facebook along with her own response.
Now that’s how it’s done.
Make sure to tip your server on the way out.
