This came up in a Band Mangement thread, I thought more discussion on the matter might be better off in OT. Here's a very recent news article that indicates Canadians are bad tippers http://www.wcax.com/story/19307681/s...customers-more .....so much so that the establishment feels a need to tack on an automatic 18% if the patrons appear to be Canadian. In the other thread a TB'er suggested that "bad tippers are referred to as "Canadians", whether they are from Canada or not. As in, "Be careful of table 27, they were here last night. Total Canadians." Is this a prevalent feeling throughout North America and the world or is it a local problem in the Vermont area? As a Canadian I would like to believe we are well received anywhere in the world.
