WANT wait staff, waitstaff Yeah, it's an ugly locution. It occurs primarily in help-wanted ads and signs. Some restaurants probably use it to cover their legal ass, but certainly not all. FWIW, the proprietor at the time was a former waiter.
At Nick's, Richard now works some hours as a host and some as a waiter. The term is not used in the strictest sense. I guess the take-away here is that restaurant people have too many real problems to deal with, to spend too much time worrying about the finest niceties of political correctness.
Many probably use it because elegant language is not a specialty of the house. Just be glad that such gendered occupational terms are the exception rather than the rule in English. We have but a sample, a taste, of the problems and awkwardness that are widespread in languages like FrenchSpanishand German.
The obvious word server, although indifferently male or female, has some problems of its own: Also, serving food is only one part of waiting table, and server is the natural word for the those who, in some restaurants, do a part of the serving that waiters and waitresses don't do.
There are subtle indications, moreover I seem to recall a suggestion in that direction in Waitingof a semantic distinction that would make the term wait staff somewhat useful and hence not so ugly.
Once past the want ads, in any case, one does not yet find the restaurant business to be roiled by sexual correctness. Managers at most restaurants do seem to be genuinely indifferent to whether they hire waiters or waitresses -- their problem is usually finding enough.
Certainly the ancient complaint about women not making a career of it doesn't matter: On the other hand, most of the waiters and waitresses in the local restaurants are in fact waitresses or waiters in convincing drag, I suppose. It seems that all of the front of the house is becoming increasingly feminized, with busgirls tending to replace busboys, and hostesses replacing hosts even on the night shift.
In Plainville, USAan anthropological study of a small, isolated farming town in the Midwest, there's a discussion of occupations, and naturally for the era pre- WWIIthe available options were more restricted for women than for men.
Those options were further narrowed by societal pressures. It is not thought good for a girl to train herself for secretarial or office work in a large city. She left her parents' home one day without a word, going off to a distant town to visit a boyfriend who turned out to be away.
Perhaps there was nothing in her behavior before she became a petty thief and forger that would have been strange if she'd been a girl from a poor family and had no home to go to, except that she hardly cared what anyone thought.
She bumped around briefly, then took a bus to Charlotte, North Carolina. She supported herself for several days by working but found her funds barely provided for room and food.
She thereupon began to spend the nights with various tipsy soldiers, travelling salesmen, and other men who showed inclination to pick her up. With all these she had sexual intercourse. Your welcome screen and email inbox are infested with AOL ads! Wallpaper of Sound Disco Rocks!
