From time to time, we as a wait staff, have both the pleasure, and displeasure of observing and serving people in far too revealing clothing. I have found myself musing on this on numerous occasions. Do you have a mirror in your home? Who/what are you trying to attract by this choice of clothing?
A while back I approached a table with an early 30's woman and man sitting across from each other. I do my intro, and look down at the woman. I see she is wearing a skirt, but it is a very short skirt. A skirt so short that now that she is seated in a booth, I can see her panties from where I am taking her order. I can also see she must have had a bikini wax recently. Not really what I want to see while I am waiting tables, it's...err...a bit distracting.
Another fashion choice that I wonder about is women who are basically wearing lingerie tops, often without bras underneath. While on some women this is an impressive look, on most of the women choosing to wear this it is decidedly not flattering. I understand you want to look good for your date/husband but there is also a place for a bit of modesty. That might be great at the club, but this is a family orientated chain restaurant. Furthermore, these tops are often very revealing to anyone who is standing over you (waiter, people walking by the table etc.). Every time you lean forward you give the world a great view of your nipple. These tops aren't tight on top like a bikini or a bra would be, so you can see it all. Again, not really what I am interested while taking your order. You might think this is a summer problem, but it's not limited to just the summer (but it's worse now). I've seen more breasts than the mammogram machine. And believe me, many are ones I really would rather forget (think pancakes in a tube sock).
Or how about the trend of the low rise jeans. If you have recently had a child, you probably should wait on the low rise jeans and the thong. When you bend over to pick up the toy/carrier/purse/etc we see far more than we would like. You think plumber have issues, we need a tub of Crack Spackle stat!
Now these fashion choices aren't limited to just women. Earlier this summer I had a classic male one. It was the tank top that is basically just strings over the shoulder and the shirt itself starts far too low. The guy wearing it looked like Ned Flanders, but the gay version. Sir, I really am not all that interested in knowing that your nipples are double pierced. Honestly, this guy looked like he just stepped of a Village People video. The shorts were short and tight, the hair slightly too poofy. I expected him to break into YMCA at any moment.
Or one of my least favorite of all times, the man in biker shorts (spandex). Last time this one happened someone had to keep me from plucking my own eyes out. I don't care what you do/don't have in your pants sir, I'm not interested. People are trying to eat here!
