I think the socks could be a great item; I know a couple of men who need them. If the fabric was comfortable enough, I'd buy socks with that technology so I didn't have to worry about any kind of odor.

Odor-eliminating pants are hot seller in Japan; Undergarments disguise smell of flatulence, body odor.

Underpants which are claimed to neutralise the smell of flatulence are proving a hit in Japan, whose hard-working businessmen seem to like the idea of breaking wind without getting caught.

A Japanese textile company has developed a range of underwear which it says prevent unwelcome odors.

"It took us a few years to develop the first deodorant pants that are comfortable enough to wear in daily life but efficient in quickly eliminating strong smells," said Nami Yoshida, a spokeswoman for the company, Seiren.

"At first we thought about selling them to those who require nursing care and to hospitals.

"But to our surprise, lots of ordinary people, like businessmen who are in positions that require them to see people on a daily basis, bought them," she said.

The underwear is manufactured with niff-absorbing ceramic particles in the material fibres.

Seiren developed the technology after being contacted by a doctor who wanted something to disguise the regular parps emitted by people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.

The company's range has now expanded to 22 items, including socks that prevent feet from smelling and t-shirts that mask the whiff of sweaty armpits.

When I was a waiter (like 20 yrs ago) tips were shared with the busers if they did good work. If I had to bus my own table, then I def wasn't sharing tips....and that happened on quite a few occasions. Basically I split tips with the bus boy in the same fashion that I tip servers today.

Still can't beleive anyone is required to split tips with the cooks or chef.

Servers get tips, chefs get compliments.

I called my Mom, who was a waitress when she was young, to ask how tips were handled "back in the day." She said that the waitresses kept all tips but some would give the bus boys a bit. She explained that how much they gave the bus boys was completely up to the waitresses and that they never shared with any of the other staff (such as kitchen).

I know that this has changed but I see it as a way for restaurants to shift employee compensation directly to their customers. Restaurants don't want to raise their prices so that they can adequately pay their employees so they've shifted the concept of earning a good tip for excellent service to expecting patrons to tip and then forcing their servers to share with the other staff.

Sorry to be joining this conversation late, but I've had a busy day.

We usually tip 20% at restaurants where the service is decent, and as low as 10% if the service stank. I don't think we have ever stiffed a waiter or waitress and do not usually tip at a take-out counter. There are exceptions, though, such as the locally owned and staffed pizza place.

VA, you wrote earlier "Why is a Starbucks barista any more appropriate to tip than the cashier at the grocery store?" That begs an entirely different question in my book. Starbucks has switched from training their employees in the skill of making real espresso, replacing it with pushing a button and letting the shot come from the machine with no variability for humidity, temperature, or other factors. The Milwaukee area coffee roasters, Alterra, make their espresso and capuccino drinks with great skill, and their baristas receive appropriate tips from us. Starbucks employees don't get the same treatment because the work they do is equivalent to that of McDonald's employees, IMO.

I've never tipped a chef or a cook in my life, never heard of it either. I can not even fathom tipping a chef.

I could just picture us asking to see Alexandra Guarnaschelli, so that I can hand her $30!!! LOL!

Now, we've certainly complimented chefs previously, but tipping them? that's just down right insulting in my book!

Va, you're right. I guess I don't consider Starbucks to be a restaurant chain, or consider their baristas to be wait staff. They're probably making minimum or better, based on market conditions and aren't really relying on tips to feed their kids, pay for school, or buy hooch on a Friday night.

So, I normally tip whatever the change is that I have in hand, or a buck if its my regular java joint.

I seriously doubt a chef makes minimum wage Carrie. I am not talking about a burger joint or diner where some kid is reheating pre-packaged food, I am refering to a restaurant where there is a trained chef.

The point is, I DO tip at all restaurants and bars but not for carry out. And I am an easy mark for waitresses because all they have to do is smile and act like they enjoy their job and they get well above my usual 20%.

"I know waitresses sometimes share tips with busboys but I have never heard that they have to give part of their tips to the chef."

Wait staff has to share their tips with the busboys, bartender (if there is one) and the cook/chef. That is how they do it here. All of which make minimum wage, while the wait staff makes less.

Of course. But I know the staff at Starbucks are not paid this way.
