As a straight white male I'm completely used to paying more than everyone else for the same things, but I'm told that's ok due to the straight white male privilege I enjoy.

Pathman: reprobate1125: symptomoftheuniverse: reprobate1125: 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.

Amish people using calculators? Hmmm...

I know...you would expect an abacus.  They're pretty modern now, but I grew up as they were transitioning. You would walk into a store, and they would come in.  Power up the cash register.  Do you transaction.  Power it down.  Go figure.

I feel like there's not enough misogyny/misandry

/what's really funny is I misspelled misogyny and I was informed it was misspelled with a squiggly underline.  I also got a squiggly underline for misandry, because apparently that word isn't real.

Pathman: 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.


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.

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.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: He's referring to the requirement that all 18 year old males have to register with selective service (which is just a euphemism for a draft registry) while 18 year old females do not. There are significant penalties for failing to register which are selectively applied to men.

If I pay more and she pays less, it's a wash, because I'm paying for both. You see, I make more money than her for the same job, because when I knock her up, I won't be unproductive for 9-12 months.

cwolf20: Porous Horace: Buffets should put up posters of healthy, trim people to shame their customers into eating less.
And/or pics of skinny models, and great toilet facilites to cater to the pro-ana crowd.

That won't help.

We'll just think the world has enough skinny people and doesn't need to worry about us.

I'm 160 pounds with a gut.  And happy with it.


It'll get twisted into "there are starving people in America. I better eat ALL the foods"

Cold_Sassy: Lokkii: Everytime something like this comes up I flashxback to when I was the boss over an office with eight women and one guy. Generally things went OK but I always  remember the day the guy came into my office and asked,

"Why is it that men and women are equal when it's time to clean the breakroom, but when there's something heavy to lift, I'm the only guy in the office?"

Men are stronger.  Because Biology.

LavenderWolf: When I took my dog for a walk yesterday, a bunch of kids ran up to us. One of them was just covered in blue chalk, and got my dog filthy with it. I yelled at him "What are you doing? You're getting blue all over my dog!" and the kid just laughed with a Nelson-like "Ha-Ha."

On the way back home I saw that little kid running up to him and I just got the sternest look I could muster, pointed at him, and yelled "Stay. Away."

Little kid looked like he got hit by a truck with how quickly he stopped running after me.


This felt like a non sequitur to me, but I enjoyed your anecdote nevertheless.

Just make everyone get weighed before and after and charge em by the pound.

Have a scale at the door.  Everybody who comes in has to be weighed, then the buffet charges by the pound.  Then buffet monitors will be stationed along the buffet table, making sure that patrons take the proper mix of expensive proteins and cheaper vegetables and starches.  Patrons must then wait until their table is  bussed before they can leave and surtaxes will be charged for food left on the plate.  While the patrons are dining, the computerized POS system would do background checks.  Additional amounts would be charged to those who are too wealthy, while rebates would be offered to those who are on SNAP programs or other public assistance.   If they could tie into your medical records, they could also advise you on which dishes you should eat, how  much of each and whether or not you were qualified to make a trip to the dessert table.

At least that's how a bureaucrat would set it up.

They could make up the $170 difference by letting them drink out of the same water fountains. Having to support separate fountains is very costly.

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


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.
