Kansas waitress refuses tip from budget-slashing Gov. Sam Brownback: ‘Tip the schools’ instead

Published

on

A Kansas waitress, who had already given notice that she was quitting her job, refused a tip from tax-cutting Gov. Sam Brownback (R), noting on his credit card receipt “Tip the schools” instead.

As reported by KSN, Chloe Hough took a picture of the receipt and posted it to her Facebook page under the heading “MIC DROP.”

According to Hough, she had already given notice at Boss Hawg’s Barbeque in Topeka when the governor came into the restaurant with his family.

Jumping on Facebook she wrote, “You guys 911 emergency. It’s my last shift and I am waiting on our governor. What should I say to him. This is not a test. Go.”

According to Hough, she wasn’t trying to be malicious but she didn’t want to waste a once in a lifetime moment.

“I just knew I had to say something, or I would regret it,” she said, adding, “It was my last shift at the restaurant, as I had quit, so it worked out nicely.”

Hough said she ran it past other staff members, including her boss who didn’t appear thrilled but laughed, before going ahead.

According to Hough — who said she believes education is the “foundation” of a progressive country —  the governor still gave her a tip, using the customer copy to leave her  10 percent.

Despite his recent re-election, Brownback is unpopular in his state having slashed taxes while cutting services and creating huge budget deficits. The conservative governor recently cut funding for schools in the state in an effort to keep the state solvent, forcing many schools to close early due to a lack of money.

Since posting the photo (seen below) on Facebook it has gone viral.

Body language expert dissects the power dynamic at play in the iconic Nancy Pelosi photo

Published

on

Last week, President Donald Trump met with Democrats at the White House to discuss the way both sides could work to fix the President's mistakes in Syria. Democrats left the White House saying that the President had another meltdown during the meeting, which prompted Trump to claim Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the one who had a meltdown. He then posted photos of Pelosi sitting quietly and another photo of Pelosi standing and pointing at him.

Body language expert Dr. Jack Brown posted the photo and gave his own analysis of what he believed was happening in the photo.

"When a person has little or no empathy — and/or when they're far from their emotional baseline, their ability to interpret how others will view an event becomes dramatically distorted," Brown explained Sunday. "Rarely has this behavioral axiom been better exemplified than last Wednesday at the White House."
