Waitress Refuses GOP Governor’s Tip and Turns Tables: ‘Tip the Schools’

During her final shift at a Kansas barbecue restaurant, waitress Chloe Hough, who had recently quit her job, realized that she was serving Kansas governor Sam Brownback, a Republican who recently voted to replace the state’s education funding system with a controversial “block grant” program that slashed public school budgets by millions of dollars.

After consulting with her friends on social media (“What should I say to him. This is not a test”), Hough decided to go with the following, and posted it on Facebook:

“I just knew I had to say something or I would regret it,” she told KSNT, adding that, “the way I understand it, 0% of Kansas educators voted in favor” of the block grant.

For his part, Brownback may not be losing too much sleep over Hough’s viral tip, telling KSNT that “it’s a persons right to voice their opinion…good or bad.”
