Colb criticized the tipping system in general as facilitating the kind of discrimination that Lynn uncovered.

“Like the employer who fails to promote an employee because she does not sufficiently conform to the feminine stereotype, restaurant owners share in the blame for utilizing a pay structure that turns unenlightened customers into the ‘boss’ in charge of determining a server’s take-home pay,” she said.

Modern, liberal Feminism was instituted to allow less than attractive women access to the mainstream.

Yeah, I’ve long forgiven lousy service because the waitress fills out her uniform in a pleasing manner.

Do these so-called feminists ever realize just sexist they are when they come up with this kind of crap?

Instead, he found that waitresses with larger bra sizes received higher tips — as did women with blonde hair and slender bodies.....

Yet, it's a serious article about a study at an Ivy league university involving economics, psychology and laws on discrimination.

In a related story, Waiters with a tan and defined 6-pack make more tips than over-weight Waiters.

Somehow this is a shock? Part of the job of a Wait Person is to deliver the product the customer wants in a timely manner, graciously, politely and looking good while you do it only adds to the tip.

For the life of me, I keep thinking of that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine was trying to shut down a diner for discrimination because all the waitresses looked alike and had huge breasts. She filed a complaint with the EEOC and the found the guys from the EEOC were eating lunch there every day (for, um, investigative purposes, of course). Then, at the end of the episode she found out that the waitresses were all daughters of the owner.

Request for Professor Colb: Go out and open your own restaurant. Then you can make all the decisions yourself. You can even put up a sign - to which I would adhere - that says “Unenlightened Customers not Allowed.” And, yes, whenever we pay someone for doing something, we are the defacto “boss.” It’s called reality, dear.

(1) Duh.

(2) I should’ve gone into the social sciences. I think I could’ve made a very fulfilling career of breast-related sociological studies. I consider myself something of a connoisseur.

(3) Maybe large-breasted waitresses make the dining experience more enjoyable. The fact that it is appearance-related does not mean that the tip was not related to the enjoyability of the outing. He should do a study of wife’s breast-size and its relation to male marital happiness.

(4) The author suggests a uniform tip. As one would expect from a liberal, he does not indicate whether the purpose is to help the small-breasted, or hurt the large-breasted. Maybe a federally subsidized waitress implant program would be more beneficial.

Colb suggested instead that a uniform percentage “gratuity” be charged with each meal.

Yeah, because price fixing works so well and all.

I pay tips purely on quality of service. Many cute, young waitresses have received paltry tips from me because they were inattentive or rude.

Some of the highest tips I've given were to excellent male servers.
