Trope-a-Day: Service Sector Stereotypes

Service Sector Stereotypes: Played differently due to low-pop demographics and high-wealth culture; namely, waitstaff (for one example) are near-universally highly professional and competent in order to justify the expense of having them at all (the low end of the restaurant market automates the job away).  (Also, “service with a smile” is only partially played straight; much like the rest of the Imperial commercial universe, it is very much understood that all business is by mutual consent and, per the above as well as general civility, you will not be permitted to get away with abusing the employees.)
