Tipping in America (1)


Tipping in general - Most countries have tipping unlike in Japan, where it is extremely rare.  However, in America tipping is much more important than in almost any other country in the world.
Giving a good tip will give you great customer service whereas a small tip may leave you with a bad experience.
In general, good tips will make everyone around you more polite.

Tipping at restaurants - At restaurants in America, you generally give 15% of the bill as a tip.  So, if the food was 10 dollars you would give a $1.50 tip, making the total cost of the meal &11.50.
If the service (how good the waiter/waitress is) was great then it is nice to give a 20% or 25% tip.
If the service was bad, then give a 10% or 5% tip.  Giving no tip at all is extremely rare and should only
be done in very rare situations when the waiter or waitress was extremely rude to you.                 (J.F)
