Welcome to equal rights, subby.  Women pay the same as a man.  It all evens out.

As a kid some of the Amish smorgasbords would charge kids by the pound...as in their weight. It was fun as a little kid but as I got into the tween years it was a little awkward to have people busting out calculators to figure out if they should charge my butt for as a kid or adult.

A fat woman came into the store today and said she needed something she could be comfortable in. I said, "Try Wyoming!"

So?  A business should be able to charge whatever the hell it wants.  If you don't like it, eat somewhere else.
As it were i'm pretty sure they already have a price structure for people that eat different amounts - it's called the menu.

this article has click-bait written all over it.

Something is doing the telling of me that they do not have the knowledge of the roommate of me. She is quite the bigger person and let me say this to you. All she can have the eating of is the amount which will have to you the utterings of the awe inspiration. I am thinking sketch could put the Brazilion bikin waxing place and the restaurants out of the business.

The way I look at it is I'm over-paying for my wife to eat at a all-you-can-eat buffet to compensate for the destruction that I do to buffets.

\Yes, I am a fat guy married to a petite, skinny woman... why do you ask?

This is true. If you do not wish for the $50 surcharge for being the Black person then do not do the complaints. Just do the eating elsewhere.

Then I suppose I should not feel bad that women pay higher healthcare premiums because they can get pregnant.

Not all men eat more than their women counterparts, just like not all women plan to get pregnant.

So much for gender equality. People who really beleive that will ever be achieved worldwide are deluded.

I think the only question that can be asked here is "does she demolish the bathroom"?

I try to avoid buffets, because I don't eat enough to get my money's worth.

I have no problem doing this. Actuarial science is legitimate. If you don't enforce actuary standards, you end up with businesses discouraging certain people from purchasing their products.

However, if we're going to make men pay more for buffets and car insurance, then let's stop whining about women making slightly less money because it costs their employers more to provide health insurance for them.

OM MAGOODNESS you have not the idea of this. I do believe is she had the meal in the buffet of the Brazil at the lower price than the man I would have to do the moving for the week.

I see you're actively posting again.  Did you get out of prison recently or something?

First of all I would actually prefer to know if the establishment I was eating at was owned by huge bigots so that i could do precisely that but more importantly, being a man is not a protected class under the 1964 CRA (except as it pertains to hiring and compensation) so the point you are driving at is silly.
 
2014-04-10 08:00:53 AM  
Hell, the big joke is the kids prices...

My three skinny ass kids can destroy a buffet by themselves.
 
2014-04-10 08:01:34 AM  
Businesses aren't, or shouldn't be, stupid. They know how to set prices to cover a profit that changes slightly from customer to customer.

I have long, extremely thick wavy hair. When I go to get it colored, my hairdresser has to use more product than he does with other clients. He doesn't charge me more.

perigee: I try to avoid buffets, because I don't eat enough to get my money's worth.


I generally avoid buffets because:

1) The ones that charge a single price for "all you can eat" attract people with slobbish eating habits and poor hygiene (and fat children who touch the food with their fingers to help them decide if they want it or not).

2) The ones that charge "per item" end up costing through the roof.

In the Us, women don't pay higher health insurance premiums. That's explicitly illegal. Insurance companies can only use age as a rating factor and even there they can't have their highest age rating be more than 3 times the cost of their lowest age rating. Source: ACA

I'm not sure but I think somehow, in some way, your micro-aggressions are supporting the rape culture.  Check your privilege.

I'm not so sure that buffet pricing in Brazil is a huge concern for people that advocate for gender equality.
 
2014-04-10 08:08:29 AM  
Well, now that John Pinette isn't a factor any more, the buffets should actually drop their prices.

Your hairdresser doesn't charge you as he is overcharging everyone. You're just using closer to what you are paying for.

This is the same way my coffee place affords to give me a free coffee once in a while. I'm paying $1 for a cup, cream, sugar and coffee that only costs about $.10 to produce.

Try Asia.  I can eat when I want to, but if my 5'4 95 pound girlfriend wants to eat she will put me to shame.  We've got a chain called "Big Pizza" here.  Imagine CiCi's or whatever crappy but acceptable pizza buffet, good quality school/hospital cafeteria style food, ice cream, some other stuff, ohh and unlimited beer for about $8 a head.

I love going there, but needless to say I don't eat much.

If only ingredients were the only expenses the guy selling you that cup of coffee had... he'd be making a shiatload of profit.

But I am just nitpicking.  Point still stands.

I buy my coffee at cumberland farms. Yes, there is some labor overhead but not much. So, that $.10 coffee may cost $.15. Thanks for keeping me honest.

Yup but now we are all being forced to pay for stuff we don't need like maternity coverage so it is cheaper for chicks who want to spawn.  It would be like making all of us have to pay for boat insurance , even if we don't own a  boat, so it is cheaper for boat owners. Or how about higher auto insurance rates on teenage girls to make insurance cheaper for teenage boys.
