Hooters is well known for being the classiest place on the planet. When asked what they want to be when they grow up, children everywhere reply, "Hooters waitress!"
Oh wait, parents don't want their kids to be a waitress at Hooters? Ok, then this story makes sense.
Parents at a Florida school are straight pissed that a Hooters waitress was asked to speak to students during the Great American Teach-In, sharing with students, why they should "reach for the stars". The stars, being Hooters.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, "The waitress — dressed in sweatpants and a sweater — spoke to students about her job Thursday at the Calvin A. Hunsinger School, a K-12 public school in Clearwater that serves 130 students with emotional and behavioral disabilities."
I'm sure they at least appreciated her taking the time to dress up.
The principal and waitress are both defending their actions, saying waitressing is an honorable profession, which it is, we agree, just maybe leave out the Hooters part.
Brittany Morgan, the 23-year-old waitress, said, she gets why the mom is upset and respects her opinion. " But I'm confident there was nothing wrong with my presentation," she said. "Most of us (Hooters waitresses) are going to school. We're aspiring to do other things in life. This isn't our career."
"We thought it was a great idea," said Leah Ramker, Tampa Bay marketing director for Hooters Management Corp. "Anyone can be inspiring, no matter what their job is."
