If you have gone out to eat more than five times in your adult life, chances are you have flirted with a server. It could be due in part to the copious amounts of liquor flowing from the bar; or perhaps it is related to how food itself is a sensual experience involving erogenous zones like the tongue and brain.

Don't believe it? Think about the adjectives commonly appearing on upscale menus: Luscious. Heavenly. Sumptuous. Enticing. Daring.

    Well, it seems that patrons need to watch their daughters as well as their tip quotient when dining out. Who knew having a nice evening out was fraught with such perils of server plots? As a single mother, I'm thinking of the dating possibilities in getting a second job as a server. Sounds like there's something better than eHarmony out there! And here I thought past servers were just being generous when they took something off my bill or paid me a compliment. Man, I've been missing the server secret code signs!
