tipping? what’s that?

08Dec08

Today I taught my students about ordering food in America. They were shocked to hear that we are expected to tip our waiters and waitresses an extra fifteen to twenty percent for their service. And after living in Korea for nearly four months now, I suppose I’m inclined to agree. It’s more than likely that I’ll be just as outraged when I have to return to the States, and, along with it, this rather unfortunate custom. I’ve become quite accustomed to not having to tip at restaurants and to paying less than five dollars for food and service combined. You see? Some things in Korea really are better.
