Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) has slashed essential state services left and right, with decidedly negative results. So when a waitress who was about to work her last shift before quitting found herself serving Brownback’s table, she knew she had to send him a message.
“You guys 911 emergency. It’s my last shift and I am waiting on our governor,” former Boss Hawg’s Barbeque waitress Chloe Hough wrote on Facebook, according to KSNT. “What should I say to him. This is not a test. Go.”
The result—shared by Hough on Facebook and tweeted by a local news reporter—was simple but effective: “Tip the schools.”
“I just knew I had to say something or I would regret it,” Hough told KSNT.
Hough said that Brownback and his supporters were “robbing Kansas of equal opportunity” with cuts to education and other government programs.
