Dear Gabacho: Let's consult the findings of Cornell University professor Michael Lynn, the country's premier scholar on tipping. In a 2003 study titled "Ethnic Differences in Tipping: Evidence, Explanations and Implications," Lynn examined the long-standing claims by waiters that minorities tip less than gabachos. He analyzed the responses of nearly 2,000 eaters in Houston and found that not only did "Hispanics" (really Mexicans, since Houston's Latino community is nearly three-quarters Mexican) tip as well as gabachos, they usually tipped better. Mexicans, according to Lynn, "increased their percentage tips with service ... more than did whites. Lynn offered no explanation for his findings, but I will: Mexicans leave a little extra not out of a perceived social obligation but for a job well done-which includes how caliente the chica is.

That exerts an upward pressure on tips," said Michael Lynn, an associate professor at Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.
It would make sense for the restaurant industry to establish a norm before tipping rates move up to the point of pricing diners out of the market, he said.
The conventional wisdom says tips are based on service -- but Lynn argues that's wrong.Research has shown that tips are rarely based on the quality of service and are usually determined arbitrarily, he said.
"Servers think there's a relationship between tips and service, but there isn't.How sunny it is outside literally has as big of an impact on a tip as the service," Lynn said.
I don't know where Mr. Lynn gets his info, but where I'm from the weather has nothing to do with tiping.
