GO BACK WITH MONEY

Question Of The Week August 6, 2018

Have you ever been a dinner guest of someone and you see they did not leave a tip?  What do/did you do?

  1. Tipping is much less common here. When a dinner experience is particularly good then tips are left, but it isn't mandatory by any means.

    1. If the wait staff in the United States was compensatory then no tip would be required but they work so hard for such little pay plus many work only for the tips here.

  2. Like EC said, tipping is not at all common here, but I have seen people pay and tell the person to keep the change. I guess that counts as a tip, but it's a rare thing. Most people here pay the amount on the bill and that's it.

    1. Sounds like Australia has proper pay for servers:-)

  3. I would say, "Thank you for dinner(or whatever), let me leave the tip."

    1. It has been a rare thing but one time Ron went back and left the tip so his friend didn't know.

  6. Hasn't happened to me but I think I would not interfere with their decision.

  7. I agree with your above commenter and it is what we usually do. One may pay and the other offers the tip.

  8. I always do like Sharon. "Thank you for the dinner--I've got the tip."

  9. Hmmmm... nope, I haven’t had that experience yet, thank goodness.

  10. I have had this happen and go “use the bathroom” and give it to the server.
    As an aside, my mom always told me, watch how a man treats a waitress and his mother. That is how he will treat you.

  11. I don't think I've ever been in a situation where we haven't left a tip, but if I were, I'd just leave some cash on the table anyway. I know in the States servers are really poorly paid and need the tips to survive.

  12. Not that I can recall....As others have said tipping is mandatory here in Australia, but I've always tipped, and when I was married we did, too. My ex, Randall, lived in New York for 9 years and part of those years he was bar manager of a bar on the Upper East Side of NY...and he relied on tips to survive.

    Through the years I've worked in the hospitality industry, which included at times waiting on tables...receive a tip was most appreciated.

  13. I don't think cafe/restaurant staff are particularly well paid in the UK but tipping isn't always done. It's pretty much the same in Europe as here.
    Some restaurants have a service charge so I never leave tips there but most places I leave one. Have to say I was shocked at the amount expected from tips in the US. In such a rich country why are the wages so low?
