from Curve, a lesbian magazine. Are lesbians generally thought of as bad tippers and cheapskates?
I have a friend that worked as a waitress in the gayest part of San Francisco, the Castro District.Comment: At least some of the participants in the discussion think there's some truth to the stereotype, though not necessarily themselves. Check out the comments.
She tells me over and over again how lesbians in general are the worst tippers ever... she says that the reason lesbian bars and businesses do not prosper is that lesbians are cheapskates and do not support their community.
I know I am a great tipper unless the service is poor. I frequent the clubs on lesbians nights and spend money at lesbian businesses almost exclusively because I DO want to support the community.
But the other night when my wife and I went out to dinner with friends and our bill was over $100 and the woman who invited to treat us to dinner left a $10 tip. And it made me think.... maybe there is some truth to my other friends theory?
What do you think? Is there truth in this?
