Recent threads about guys asking out coffee shop workers and about guys going to strip places have made me think: Would I rather have my now-teenaged daughters when they are in college have jobs as baristas or strippers? Putting aside the facts that: (1) Starbucks and its kind are probably much better to their employees than what I would imagine the owner of the typical strip club would be to his or her employees; and (2) the average barista is much more likely to be a college student working part-time as opposed to being a crack addict who has no future, I wonder whether baristas are being hit upon by men more than stipppers are? Strip clubs patrons, for the most part, realize that the whole set up is an illusion/fantasy and there usually are large bouncers nearby to keep anyone else in line. I don't see any bouncer-types at Starbucks. From what I am reading here it sounds like baristas are being hit upon by men every day. And, there does not appear to be any protection for the baristas, such as bouncers found in strip clubs. Am I missing anything?
