Here's the outfit for waitresses at a popular restaurant of today. I wonder if these gals ever burn their stomachs, or other body parts, on hot plates. Anyway, in the 1960s the men (let's face it these restaurants aren't for ladies who lunch) would order steak and martinis from women in black nylons, now it's beer and chicken wings from girls in halter tops
I avoided tackling this topic of skimpy outfits for waitresses because I didn't want to sound bitter and old and angry. Then I thought, hey wait, haven't I earned the right to be bitter and old and angry? In most areas of my life, I try to remain positive, but when I read yet another help wanted ad for servers which uses words like: attractive, energetic, young, I get, well, bitter. In what other profession could you get away with requiring your applicants to be young and skinny? Okay maybe working as a stripper or an actress. Bottom line is no matter how revealing the outfit, waitresses are still slinging hash and picking up dirty dishes. That part has remained the same, too.
Well thanks for letting me vent. Many of the server ads require I send a photo. I'm thinking of this one. Okay it's a few years old, but it's me. Do I look young and hot enough? (Scroll down to see.....)
