Re: Tipping Culture in America...
There is a very big tipping culture in America, and some Brits don't like that when they go out there.
Personally, I thinks the Americans are really good at customer service and the Brits are the worst in the world. I would think the tipping side of it is not a coincidence.
I would much rather have 15% knocked off all my bills over here, and then pay a decent tip to the person who provides good customer service and fuck all to the pleb that does not. Having a standard service charge instead of a tip just means the service dips.
Good servers make good money from tips in the US, but poor ones do not. I think that's fair enough ........ but it doesn't sit well with the European socialist model, which seems to dictate that the unable and the unwilling are subsidised by the shrinking numbers of people whoactually so work hard.
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
