    I have a tip for you: Don't bet the horses.

    I will leave it up to the OP to determine how to stereotype my ethinicity based upon this information.

    On one hand, I think tipping is good, because I feel bad for the waiters/waitresses.

    On the other hand, tipping is really annoying. I hate having to decide what to tip on a bill. I would rather restaurants factor the tip into the price of all the items. It's like that in Japan and the wait staff at every restaurant I went to were much better than the average waiter at a decent restaurant in the states. Of course, there's a cultural aspect to that, but it was great.

    Let's not get into tip jars though... that bugs me.

    I think its 4. Europeans. But I don't think it only can be narrowed down to ethnic groups. It is different from individual to individual. :)

    Really?
    My friend said women are cheap asses, and men tip much better.
    BUT that could be because she's a girl lol

    South Africa?

    I guess subtlety isn't my game. The OP lists his location as South Africa.
