It is probably more like .. "I want desert but I don't want to look like a fat-ass to the waiter who is quite svelte." vs. "Fuckit, I don't care what that fatass thinks, I'll have a desert."

I never order dessert, but I can tell you I dislike having overweight servers, I'm always afraid they'll take some fries from my plate before they serve me.

Well duh, they trust her recommendation.

It's like, who wants food made by a skinny cook?

Who trusts a fat cook? They ate all the good bits. Also, the server isn't the cook.

You / the point

Point being is that if the food is good then the people around it all day are going to be prone to eating it and knowing what's best. Particularly those who don't know when to stop eating...

The margin on desserts is less than other items and most restaurants would prefer you not order them.

So hiring normal sized waiters seems like a good business decision.

Hmm. Serious question: would this principle hold true if your server was a robot? Would an overweight-looking robot sell more desserts?
