Sorry, you obviously misunderstood. I was a sales counselor for Circuit City, not a flight attendant.

I know I shouldn't make generalizations, but Idon't think all black people are as dumb and uneducated as your typical black boxer.

Nice generalization there. I'm a great tipper. I've never worked in the restaurant industry, but know they make crap salaries, so I try to give them the benefit of the doubt. If the service is good, I'll usually tip at least 25%, if it's great, it's more than that.
 
 I went to Heritage India with a white colleague of mine a few months back. She was pretty rude to the waitstaff and made quite a mess on the tablecloth. The tab came to about $32 and we both put down $20 bills. I left it at that, but she insisted we wait for change.     ;)   Well, he would rather wait for a black sales counselor to become available rather than have a white one make a commission off him...AND THOSE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS!

**ggw thinks** subtlety lost on Mankie. Doesn't understand that "sales counselor" at a stereo store is a euphemism much like those in the Replacements song.  Wonder what he's rambling on about college for.  Poor old chap must have forgotten to take his Donepezil this morning.

*mankie thinks* GGW is finally back to being the pompous, elitist, my shit doesn't stink loveable self. Shame I wasn't a Sanitation expert, maintenance engineer, garbage man or even a janitor either, or his attempt at humor may not have fallen flat on it's face.

If Ali is not a heavyweight, I'd hate to see how big the heavyweight boxers are.
