I was in Finland last summer. Every restaurant I went to, I wasn't greeted or anything. No welcomes, hellos. No smiles. Had to find our own table.
Waitress came by and asked us 'what do you want?'. That was it. We gave our order. Soup comes in. It's cold. I call her and tell her 'soup is cold'. She looks confused and stands there like 'ok.. And?'. Had to tell her to heat it up and bring it back. Service industry is a total mess. You get treatment like you are prison and in line for food. Tipping doesn't sound like a bad idea after all.
>they don't have fucking buzzers in buses
No fucking way

Did you order Gazpacho?
Good customer service but not in York. In York I literally could not understand a fucking thing the guy was saying and it was obvious he was being obtuse and difficult on purpose.
Rest of the time was great, people were polite and friendly, except for that one fucking asshole in York. Acted like a fucking child desu.
Nice, friendly waitstaff. Except for some bitchy Asian server who, after bringing my drink over said, "You don't get free refills here like in America". Uhhh... okay?
top tier politeness. very friendly waitstaff and accommodating even through language barriers.
Absolute top tier. Got a coffee in Vienna and the guy brought an English newspaper to my table and even chatted for a bit about the States. Would go again.
My gay bullshit scanner is going niggershit! If this keeps going, I have to reverse to polarities or this nigga will hit 14/88 niggawatz and fry our universe! Woah!
>It's only in America that restaurants have greeters.
Not strictly true, many mid to high end restaurants employ a host or maitre d (sp?), expecting one in a greasy spoon cafe or pub is a bit much though.
As >>53393013 said, everybody who lived in finland in the 90s know this skit
