I think it's total bullshit. Coming from an Italian background, i can comfortably say the Italians have to be the worst in my life. My father treats his wallet like a bank vault and turns around when he opens it so you won't capture a peak. When i would go out with my friends and the bill came, they would say I have it and all put their hands in their pockets but the hands would never come out.
I am 100 percent italian and Italians are the cheapest people on earth. It borders on obscene! Jews are not overall cheap they are smart. And will sorround themselves with talent and pay for it. Not all Jews of course. But most Jews are not cheap! Italians on the other hand , especially the older men, no fucking excuse for their miserliness.
Ps I was talking about the white races of course. I didn't pencil in vile East Indians and chinks. Or mulis for that matter.
I found the Jewish people to be very kind and not cheap at all. Xmas they would give me nice tips and great advise.
Yeah, they dont count!!! Lol
In all honesty I really never thought of Jewish people being different than anyone else...that is till this Stern character made me aware of all the stereotypes, I don't know any Jewish people so I've gotta base my opinion on Howie himself. From all the data I have, it appears that he is one cheap mother fucker!
Sterotypes dont just appear there is a grain of truth in every one
In general yes, all of the no.
Howard is proof of a cheap Jew
I used to have a small business where I deal with Chinese buffets and I can say with certainty Chinese are the cheapest mother fuckers ON EARTH!! I wondered why no one except ppl in my line of business recognized this then I heard a o&a bit with Patrice O'Neal talking about the exact same thing. They really are cheap to the point of stupidity
I grew up Jewish and was one of those doubters very early on, but I guess I still get pegged as Jewish as an ethnic thing... The cheap thing is really a bunch of garbage. Most of our family and friends that are Jewish are big spenders and are some of the most generous tippers that I've ever seen. A lot of stereotypes really are dead on, but I've always found the cheap Jew thing to be utter nonsense. What I've seen more than anything is that there is an expectation of quality service and a job done right and if it's not, you're going to have a customer that isn't happy and you better get things right.
They r tighter than a clams ass the itilians running a close second.
Actually, with a POV formed from living in their winter playground, my vote goes to French Canadians, especially older ones... Not even close
I always remember that line from Glengarry Glen Ross - "Patel, how am I supposed to sell that?!?"
I've never met a cheap Jewish person at all. Even the few orthodox people I know are very generous. I hate using the word cheap, but the people that always try to give a hard time about prices in my experience are African Americans and Asians. Asians by far and wide are the worst
Not the Japanese. Now, others ....
I know a couple of cheapskates. THeir cheapness knows no bounds. Seriously they will borrow/mooch for anything. Won't buy a 99 cent plant at the garden centre. Won't buy a pregnancy test from the store. Only take vacations where they are staying in friends' houses. Don't have cable TV. Never buy their lunch from the cafeteria. Try to ride bikes instead of driving. Always asking for favours. Will invite you over and not provide food. Cut their own hair.
I lived near one of the biggest hasidic jewish neighborhoods in America, Boro park Brooklyn NY, when I was younger I used to throw pennies on the floor and everytime one walked by they picked it up.
