本期节目介绍:

法国南布列塔尼大学的尼古拉·盖冈和塞利娜·雅各布从5家餐馆征召11名女服务生,要求她们每天穿着不同颜色的T恤衫照常工作,然后记录下每天服务得到的小费数额。调查为期六周。

他们对272名用餐客人的调查显示,当女服务生身穿黑、白、绿、蓝、黄等颜色的T恤衫时,男女客人给小费会依据个人习惯,通常男性会比女性多给小费。 

不过,当女服务生身穿红衣时,男性客人给出的小费会多出14.6%至26.1%,女性客人则不会。

For the study, published in the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Research, researchers at the University of South Brittany in France instructed 11 waitresses in five restaurants to wear the same T shirt in different colors--black, white, red, blue, green, and yellow. The waitresses were told to act the same toward their customers no matter what color shirt they were wearing.

What happened? When they were wearing red, the waitresses' tips from male customers were 14.6 percent to 26.1 percent higher. How about the tips left by female customers? The study showed that the size of their tips had nothing to do with the color of a waitress‘s clothing.
