I tip 30% on everything, man. Haircuts, dinners, anything that has a gratuity/tip line. And I got the habit from my dad.

Maybe some HOOD and GHETTO black people, or people in general, don't tip well, but you can't make a generalization.

People like you are the reason we still see color. Sad.


Thank you being the exception that proves the rule. If you people would be better, SF wouldn't hate people like you.

Just for the record, it's way more fun to make fun of people who don't get sarcasm.

And also, he used "BlackKidLA" because LA Guy was already taken, and LA Kid would have made him look like my sidekick.

its odd. my gf does party planning for children's bday parties and says that indians tip more often and much much more than any other ethnicity.

post below is a liar. Habitual not tipping is stealing. Period. You agree when you SIT DOWN, that you will compensate wages for the server based on their performance. If you don't like it, take your food to go, eat at home and serve yourself. So yes, Indians SHOULD be forced to acclimate or not be allowed to actually sit down in the restaurant.

Indians, Asians, Germans, blacks, then Latins worst tippers in that order.

Most pains in the asses: Indian women, Latin men, Latin women, Indian guys, Asians, blacks, then Germans.

It's really funny to me how people abroad gripe about Americans beingbterrible guests in their country. Holy fuck have I wanted to choke out so many foreigners. They show a complete lack of understanding of American customs. I think Americans are probably more crass, but I have seen some really terrible behavior from foreign people. Snapping and clapping at people like they are dogs. Banging the table or bar top for attention. Getting major attitudes because we do not accept their foreign issues ID's. Latin people are incredibly demeaning to service industry workers.

what other nation besides the US tips so much?

i think it's a really odd custom and seems disproportionately in favor of the people that bring you the food versus the ones that make it. waiters making $20/hour for working 5, 6 hours and chefs make $12-$14 and work 14 hours a day

seems like the onus should be on the restaurant owner to price it into the menu. i think the 18% service charge split between waitstaff, buspeople, and cooks makes much more sense.
