The Hot Waitress Index

August 6, 2009 at 10:49 am  ·  Category: Humor

The indicator I prefer is the Hot Waitress Index: The hotter the waitresses, the weaker the economy.  In flush times, there is a robust market for hotness.  Selling everything from condos to premium vodka is enhanced by proximity to pretty young people (of both sexes) who get paid for providing this service.  That leaves more-punishing work, like waiting tables, to those with less striking genetic gifts.  But not anymore.
