Cornwall ON – A study released recently suggested that slim blonde, large breasted waitresses earn more in tips than others; especially dumpy, unattractive, ones that say “youse” and have charming cigarette and whisky phlegm voices going and bad manners.
His results indicate that evolutionary instinct trumps the ideals many patrons profess. Though most customers say they reward service, Lynn reports that quality of service has less than a 2-percent effect on the actual tip.
Instead, he found that waitresses with larger bra sizes received higher tips — as did women with blonde hair and slender bodies.
So I started to think about how I tip and I’m not sure if I agree with this statement or study.
“[Restaurants] might very well want to hire waitresses who will earn larger tips,” Lynn said. “[These employees] can largely be identified through their physical characteristics.”
He acknowledged that such an open policy could offend some people. In actuality, Lynn noted that many employers already take into account their applicants’ appearances. He referred to the popularity of Hooters and other similar “breastaurants” that openly capitalize on men’s affinity for “attractive” — and in particular, busty — servers.
What an odd take on social engineering. So what do you think Canada? Do you tip based on cup size? Feel free to post your thoughts below.
