Lmao @ packing a lunch instead.  I think that's a good idea and makes it less like a vacation and more like a field trip.  That's more fun.

anyway, i dont understand why ya'll persecuting me. I'm not the only one in here who isn't given/accustomed to tipping. I dont want to repeat myself, so, i'll just agree to disagree. There are more important things to worry about, seriously.

its not a requirement here. I  do if i want to. I dont understand why I should have to?

for eg. you will never catch anyone here having two jobs...yet they migrate and have 2, 3 jobs in the US. Multiple jobs isnt a part of our culture or system. We adjust if/when necessary. I dont understand what the problem is....?

but eh, im repeating myself, sorryLOL

LOL, what?


that sounds so cheap

when you come to the US don't eat out.....

It is cheap...not being used to something is not the same as not being aware.  If I were visiting another country and friends from there told me I'm supposed to do xyz I would respect the culture and do it.  It's so embedded that smaller owned mom and pops often have ppl working off the books and earn ONLY tips.  So if they serve you that BBQ and you leave nothing, they get nothing.

Why are you trying to force this down my throat though?Confused Im not hurting anyone. You say you tip because the servers need it, and its a requirement. Its not a requirement, and I also need that extra $200 that I would be giving away too...why should I give it away?

I said I would maybe tip something, I never said I would tip that 15-20 per cent you guys say is required. 

I do tip something here sometimes. Even though its not a requirement, nor customary.
What exactly is the problem?

$200 here isnt $200 there
Its hard to let go off $200 in this economy.
I never said I wouldn't tip in the US, since thats the requirement. Where did I say I wouldnt tip?Saying i would tip something is the same as saying I wouldnt tip?

First of all, if I were to visit the US on vacay (have no other reason to visit), it wouldnt be me spending, so none of that would have anything to do with me. so dont worry, your servers would get whats required.

you posted

"I would maybe tip something. And I doubt I'd do that on a simple visit. I'd have to be there for at least a few months to work my way into the custom"

what is something to you? a 1% to 10% tip?


yes. i know what I posted. Where did I say I wouldnt tip
Working my way into the custom means I wouldnt tip?

Fine Samone. We are all different people. And nothing is wrong with that, at all.
