I'm a puntastic machine, I know.

To the gist and nub of it then...er, and that would be...

There is a lovely place in my area, known as the "Hooters of coffee," in that a bunch of scantily clad scarlet women sling espresso to gawking rednecks. My dilemma is, as a proud barista, I'm one of the porkier girls. I'm starting a passive protest to work there, my hook being that I'll appeal to an *ahem* LARGER demographic.

What thinketh thou, my monkeys of Pittiness? Should I let my meats flow free, stick it to the man, and waddle my way to such an unsavory job? Or, should I turn a blind eye to dated social stigmas and wallow in poverty?

Definitely the turn-a-blind-eye-to-dated-social-stigmas-and-wallow-in-poverty option.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I don't know why that would be a bad thing, so I'm going to take this as a compliment. Thanks.

Honestly I wouldn't do it unless you are ready for some possible extremely harsh criticism

your sly wit and dry humor have put me in my place. forgive my forward behavior, but why should I be denied employment based on my weight? does the thought of my merrily bouncing gut, covered in steamed milk and syrups, as I hand a customer his drink in some way disgust you?

Now, I'm not denying that it's morally wrong. However, as a business, it seems like this place's selling point is that it has thin attractive women. It would come as no surprise that they won't risk their business to challenge the common view of society...unless you had enough money to compensate...

Jesus, do you have to talk like that? It's a little bit annoying (maybe that's just me) .

And anyway, back to the topic - go for it, but I gotta warn you, there are a bunch of douchebags out there who will make fun of you. If you take people's bull**** well, there shouldn't be a problem; however, if you are like most other people, being made fun of isn't especially fun and you won't like it.

you know, obesity is quite vogue in this valley. I'm sure I'd attract more inbred, momma-luvin' clients, (see: selling point).

edit: ^ I have skin as thick as a cow's. criticism is not unknown to me. I am, in fact, a secret fat activist. it's a passion, like reading Doris Lessing, or soda...

in what way annoying? I am not one to mince words, so pardon my vivid imagery.

Then just tell them that (with statistical support) and maybe they'll hire you...

I could also wear a corset. oh, I need poster paints to make my protest sign.

I'd say go for it. I went to Hooters a long time ago cuz all of my friends wanted to and I would have went there with or without the women working there. Reason being: they have a pool table with orange felt. It was pretty

I say go for it too, it would be morally wrong for them to turn you down for the job based solely on your weight......but alot of employers make up other 'excuses' as to why they could turn you down.

HakEdit: Oh and I don't have a clue what those poll options refer to....so I just chose marshmellows because I like marshmellows.

If you're a barista, I doubt you're going to be wallowing in poverty. just turn a blind eye

I'm on unemployment... so I'm wallowing as I speak!

well, ho-hum, I'm glad to see most of you approve. I think it would be, dare I say, revolutionary if I were employed there.

Only do it if you want to. Rednecks can be very nasty when they think nobody will care.
