    Another complication is where fast food restaurants in malls prompt you for a tip on the debit machine, before you take your food yourself and even taste it.

    I decided not to tip at a restaurant buffee (well i don’t even ever tip anyways) and my friend got annoyed at me b cause I didn’t tip, then I kinda argued why it’s stupid to tip and that it’s cowardism if you do. It’s not my fault you decided to get a job that pays you way below minimum wage.

      @Devon Rusinek well, the connection goes all the way back to the 10th century (viking age), where norse travellers discovered it. It has been under the danish king for most of written history. In modern times they have some degree of self rule, but are subject to the danish constitutiona and they are represented in danish elections

    tipping is weird even the american system of applying tax after the fact is a bit stupid, yes it is different in every state... but one store should be able to find out which state they are in and then adjust their pricetags accordingly. And statelines and taxrates dont shift more often than stores reprice things anyway

    OWLofATHENS 21 day ago

    I see waiters are the ones perpetuating this myth that tips are needed for good service, affordable meals and livable wages. Most countries in the world do not have tipping, their food prices and service are just fine. So that BS is out the window. As for the wage, the only reason you’ll fine fighting to keep the current system is that you have more to gain from it, such as the waiters making up to 50 dollars per hour one night for tips. That just shows you meals actually end up being more expensive for the customer when their waiter is being paid more than engineers, professors and some doctors per hour. I’m sorry, no matter how good your “service” is, you do not deserve 50 dollars per hour bringing plates out and pouring water. Your logic about the whole tipping thing can only fool Americans, most of whom have jus as bad of math skills as you do. The rest of the world know better.

  • Austin
    Austin 21 day ago

    If you tip in japan the boss will personally greet you and say “死ね” which of course, means “Thank you very much for your kindness I owe you one pal” he will then proceed to give you a nice firm handshake and the staff will wave goodbye to you as you walk out.

      I don't know where you go but it's not uncommon to tips for good restaurants and service in France, often like 1-2 euro but good enough. Same when I was a bartender and waiter. You will be surprised the amount people can give you if you are doing a good job and always have a smile for them.

    OspreyBravo18 23 days ago

    You do not tip in Japan... have you even been there? If you try to tip they will give you the money back. Heck if you do not pay in exact change it is seen as rude. Also if you don't tip delivery drivers you are an ass, it is a risky job and if they are using their own car they have to invest money into their car and this hurts their profit margin.

    If tipping is basically compulsory then why not just add the extra cost to prices instead, and then use the money to pay the staff?

    • CenturyBlade
      CenturyBlade 22 days ago +1

      Because it gives the illusion to patrons (as well as the rest of the world) that prices are cheaper than they would be in countries that don't do this because they have morals and/or laws preventing it. Basically typical American shady business practices.

  • Christopher Osborne
    Christopher Osborne 24 days ago

    I know it's for the sake of the joke, but from what I've gathered, tipping in Japan is almost unheard of. Unless you are staying at an upscale Ryokan (Japanese-style hotel), you'll basically never tip. I visited Japan, and didn't tip once. It was never asked for nor expected. From what I've read online, sometimes restaurant staff will run out to return money you leave on the table, with the idea that the total cost of the service was included in the price, so why should you pay more?

    • tgwnn
      tgwnn 23 days ago +1

      I don't know. In my experience in American restaurants, waiters/waitresses are often super fake and have a fake smile on because they want to make sure I tip them properly. To be sure, there are also really cool/funny wait staff but in Europe, they're just generally more chill, which suits me fine. I do also usually tip (about 10%) in Europe btw.
      PS in American restaurants (I guess I haven't been to the fancy ones but I have been to some semi-expensive ones) there's a bit of pressure to eat fast pay fast and leave, something that I've almost never experienced in Europe.

    I confess, it is a shitty system; but it's what we've got in North America. As a worker in bars and restaurants in Canadian tourist traps, whenever a client speaks to me with an Australian or British accent, I totally ignore them and hope they fuck off because I know they don't want to pay for service. I make sure, however, that my American clients are well taken care of.
