    Dana, that is just not true at all. True story: Worked in a really busy casual local chain. Other servers constantly dumped tables they didn’t want. (I’d take them, but would NOT trade) I got a bunch of regulars that way and at least 15%, but usually 20-30%. I treated them ALL the same.. happy to see them, make it fun and just do your job without thought or reservation based on the way they look.
    Trust me, customers KNOW when you judge them.. If they get it a lot, the radar gets freakin good.

    I’m going Asian couple. Those people love to drink and I love to pour their drinks. Younger Asians, the guys and the girls, tip big! They also LOVE to gamble (I used to bartend at a casino).

    Whats crazy is, they’re usually so friendly but the older generations of them, like their parents who own the Chinese restaurants, are kinda rude and aggressive.HT3qayC.png

    I picked the Asians based on the picture. Those look like Chinese-Americans in their early 20′s. Those people usually tip well and in cash.

    Other ethnicities, like Japanese-Americans, do not tip as well. Age is also a factor. I don’t trust middle-aged and elderly Asian-Americans.
