    It did seem a little contrived

    So, apparently because this might have been fake, it means that no rich people are assholes and don't tip?


    BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    Work in a restaurant for a week and you'll see who tips and who doesn't.
    The rich didn't get that way by tipping big.

    So your down to the "I have no evidence, but you all know Im right anyway" argument?

    Do you realize how pathetic that argument is?

    we know it was a hoax. I was the first one to post the specifics on the hoax in the original thread, although several posters agreed with me that a hoax was possible/likely.

    My mother was a waitress for nearly twenty years. I have dated many waitresses, and even married one. I even delivered pizza for a second income during my divorce.

    So here is what I found about tipping. The best tippers are middle income earners. Especially blue collar workers. Rich people did not tip well, but they did not tip badly, either. But every once in a while you get a rich guy who tips very lavishly. The worst tippers were black people.

    Using the intended implications behind what you were trying to say, what conclusions should I make about black people?
