    This made me laugh - loudly.

    Not to counter you but I have had similar experience in food delivery.
    Everyone, even the black guys hated to deliver to the black neighborhoods because you usually had to give back exact change.

    There were a couple good tippers but mostly is was a waste to go.

    So when I waited tables, and got a table full of african-americans, I tried to pass them off cause they have a tendency not to tip. Stereotypical? You betcha. Was also 100% true in my restaurant career. Sometimes sterotypes are right.
    I have waited tables in past and to me? The worse tippers were the older white folks that were dressed to the nines. Stingy as hell with their money

    That can be very true as well.
    Old people don't tip worth a **** if they even do.

    Best tippers are middle/upper income, mid 20's to middle age.
    Color doesn't usually make a difference as much then.

    Okay, if you've got ONE sticker and it isn't something stupid, fine.

    Two dozen? No. Even if I agree with every single one of your stickers, the mere fact that you have that many stickers on one car, means something is seriously wrong with you.

    I was denied employment due to the fact that I was not a minority candidate.

    Well they are on a budget but damn can't you at least leave a dollar?

    I am still laughing at the person who expected a big tip from school kids.

    Yea I wouldn't expect too much from them but I didn't work near college kids.

    Very true. But I usually had, eh, maybe a 20% chance of a good tip with them. And they'd always tip, it just might be no more than 10%. Which again, is why I say it's not really a racist thing, so much as cultural. I fully understand that old people and black people weren't raised to tip 20%.
