Servers decked out in high heels and skimpy dresses isn't an unusual sight in many restaurants.  That is... if it's women wearing them.

 To highlight the way many female servers are forced to show off their bodies, the restaurant dressed its male staff like this to make a statement.

The men discovered the attire also hurt their ability to do their job.

The men say they forgot orders, took twice as long to serve tables and even stopped bringing refills.

But what surprised these men the most - was how people felt entitled to touch them and make comments.

After a few hours they all kicked off their heels for something more comfortable and gained a newfound understanding of what many women have to deal with on the job.
