      That's right! We can learn not to tip when we go abroad so they can learn that in America, we tip!!

      Here's a tip- pay your staff a better wage, then they won't provide a substandard service and expect still to be paid for it. An oldie but a goodie....

      Heh, given the group that this photo is posted in, I wish this were written on a post -it note.

      As a former waitress, I concur. I hated the fact that I relied on tips - but only when I got a really crappy one. $2.15 an hour is all we get paid people!!!! It's so crazy that with all of the advancements in this world, we haven't revolutionized the service/restaurant industry!

      (In the UK) There are three levels of minimum wage, and the rates from 1st October 2007 are:

      * £5.52 ($11.02) per hour for workers aged 22 years and older
      * A development rate of £4.60 ($9.18) per hour for workers aged 18-21 inclusive
      * £3.40 ($6.79) per hour for all workers under the age of 18, who are no longer of compulsory school age. (all conversions done 23jul08)

      that's why standard tip in UK is about 10%. pay your service staff better, american companies, you suck!!

      That's shocking, $2.15 an hour! If that was London, it would take you the first 5 hours to pay off getting into town to work! What exactly is the justification for it, especially as other western nations are so much better paid by comparison? (One note: American service is extremely good though).

      Well, only restaurant waiters & waitresses have such low wage requirements, because the government assumes you make at least 15% of your sales in tips. Typically, if you work a decent shift, you can make between $15-$25 an hour for a low to mid-priced restaurant and much more for an expensive place. But if you happen to work a shift where you don't get many tables and a few of them give you low tips, you can get pretty grouchy when you walk out the door with $20 for a few hours of work!
