    I don't know, as it pertains to nationalities, but I do know that I resent bathroom attendants and aggressive street vendors, for the most part. I know they need to make a living, but I find both professions to be extremely annoying. I can get my own soap and my own towel, and I don't want to have to tip anyone in a freaking bathroom. It's just unnecessary. When the chick at House of Blues tries to squirt soap in my hand, I just politely refuse and use the dispenser. I don't really feel obligated to use her services.

    I don't really feel bad at being borderline rude to aggressive vendors, as they don't seem to react at all to subtlety, and they're invading my space.

    I totally concur with this, its a really good summation of what I was trying to say.

    On the other hand I've got to admit that I do have issues with particular ethno-nationalities which are over-represented in these sorts of roles.

    I dunno. I used to live in NYC, and saw this sort of thing all of the time. It didn't bother me too often. But then, I'm not a xenophobic, judgemental reactionary.
