According to KSLA, in South Carolina a waitress received a not so nice tip from a couple she had been serving. The note said:

"Thank you for your excellent service today – your a good waitress.

Heres 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 your contributing to your household by coming into work, but your not. While your in here 'working' this is the reason your husband must see another women on his way home from a long day at his work. Because you should be home takeing care of the household duties, you may think what you are doing 'working' is right, it is really escentially a disgrace to his manhood and to the American family. So instead of coming to your 'job' and looking for hand out's to feed your family, hows 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)"

Just like the woman who received this letter I was angry and heartbroken to read this. First thing, I couldn't help but try to autocorrect their grammar mistakes as I read through this note.

Secondly, What a nerve this person has to tell this woman where her place is. Who has the right to tell anyone how to live their life? What right does this person have to judge and critic this woman on how runs her household? No one does.

A woman's place isn't in the home. The woman's place is where ever she wants to be. If it is working at a restaurant to bring in money for her home then so be it. If it is working as a police officer, a teacher, or a pilot then so be it. This is a woman is getting work done. This is a woman is taking charge of her life not only for her family but for herself.

 

I can only imagine if one of the strong women here in the SBC would have gotten a note life this- That person would have a hand print stamped on the side of their face.

My heart goes out to the woman who got this note. A woman's place is not at home. A woman's place is where ever she decides to stand.
