(KTVI) – We’ve seen the messages on the receipts — some are kind, some are just plain rude, some where never meant to be seen by the customers, but here’s one that’s got people talking about breastfeeding.

According to the Huffington Post,this receipt was posted to Facebook by Jackie Johnson-Smith. She was breastfeeding her baby in an Iowa pizza parlor. Now, you’re thinking, this could be bad, but check out the message on the receipt:

“I bought one of your pizza. Please thank your wife for breastfeeding!”

On Jakie Johnson-Smith’s Facebook page, she posted this message with the receipt:
I have breastfed three children… I have breastfed them in countless of places both pleasant and unpleasant, discreetly and out in the open. I have gotten many looks and stares, but tonight erases any negativity I have ever received. I ate at Fongs for the first time tonight. Having a fussy baby I nursed him for awhile in the booth and eventually left the table early as to not disrupt the restaurant. The waitress gave this receipt to my husband. I was speechless and emotional. Although I don’t need a pat on the back for feeding my child, it sure felt amazing. It is amazing how we women can make each other feel when we empower each other.
