I work as a waitress and have noticed that lumbee people (for the most part!!!!) either do not tip or leave a very, very minuscule tip (maybe 5%?). All other servers I have talked to complain about the same thing. Regardless of how excellent of service you provide them with, you can expect to be stiffed or only get a dollar or so. What's the deal? Are they cheap? Completely unaware that servers make $2.13 an hour and rely on our tips? Or just rude? On behalf of all servers - we would honestly would love to know.
I recently moved to Robeson County and I can honestly say the answer to all your questions are a big fat yes. Speaking of fat, this area has the most morbidly obese people I have ever seen in my life. As a matter of fact, the fatter they are the meaner they are. In close proximity to every church, there's at least 5 dope houses. As far as cheap tippers go, the thieving blacks are much worse, 95% won't even tip. Not surprising, a lot of them dine and dash out the door without paying.
