“in-advance” tip.

Sort of. More of an “anatomical” type of tip.

“I am disappointed but not surprised to learn that female servers with larger breasts receive more generous tips,” said Prof. Sherry F. Colb, law, who studies sexual equality has small boobs.

“But Colb’s reaction is classic...”

Indeed.

“Colb suggested instead that a uniform percentage “gratuity” be charged with each meal” should read “Colb suggested that restaurants increase the price of all meals by 15% leaving customers to pay the higher amount regardless of the quality of service.”

What on Earth makes you think that joke was appropriate to post on FR?

What is the standard? Over the years I have seen this board go ever more crude and vulgar. I once had a thread decrying the profanity that is allowed here. Mostly crickets.

I bet this “study” was financed by the taxpayers.

seems to me now days, that the more "hip" or "trendy" the place is, the more likely it will have a high ratio of the Jennine Garaffalo types to anything that resembles good looking, let alone good looking and have a playboy body

Actually ... I just looked up the movies for both Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, and I don’t think I’ve seen a one of them. Pretty sure they’re in genres I don’t watch much.

There is a point of diminishing returns — but I think that point is closer to Mansfield than Loren.

Understood. Thing is, my late wife and Sophia have a lot in common in that area, so maybe I’m just reflecting on the reality I know. LOL

Sophia Loren was great in El Cid with Charlton Heston.

Hmm... so this study was based on perceived sexiness from women who most likely saved up some money to buy bigger body parts because they would make more money with the bigger body parts. Could they, I dunno, also figure out how to correlate attitude or other attributes a customer wants with tips?

I used to pour beer at a sports stadium. I would get tips when I smiled real purdy, flirted a little, and get the foam on the top of the cup just right.

Are tips higher in colder climates?

He should do a study of wife’s breast-size and its relation to male marital happiness.

That's a far more complex social interraction and not subject to a straight-forward test. Part of what these studies do is they attempt to boil away all other factors to test for just one thing. It's not always possible.

Here we have a social interaction between people that we don't expect to know eachother on a personal-level: the customer & the waitress. AND we have a handy measuring-stick -- the size of the tip. Reading how these studies are constructed can be pretty interesting stuff.

Haha. You know — they have establishments where the women will skip the charade and just lose the top (or more) altogether.

LOL! Yeah, but you don't usually take a date to an establishment like that!
