>went to USA last summer
>there is this graveyard near the hotel we are staying at
>someone would actually put coins on the graves to tip the custodians
>we'd collect these two times a day and use in the vending machine to get root beer
>once there was even a medal on one of them that my brother got
Why? They are already paid to keep the graveyard in shape. They are GARDENERS
If you actually did this you are a huge faggot. Custodians barely get paid anything for what they do, and if your brother actually took a medal left on one of the graves he should fucking put it back because it probably belonged to the person buried there.
They aren't beggers, they don't ask for the money
OP is just a huge faggot that deserves to be beaten because he and his brother took money meant for a man who does a great service by maintaining the graves of the dead, as well as being borderline grave robbers by taking that medal.
>mfw one of the workers got pissed off when I left too small tip
It was literally the only money I had in my pocket, travelling is expensive. Fuck sake. Get a real job if you're gonna get mad.
Yeah, if you see a veteran on the street it's pretty normal for people to give them money. Whatever you can give. You better fork over more than 5 unless you want your ass kicked though.
>be in america
>get a free plastic bag
>a cool person of colour puts my groceries inside the bag
>say thank you sir
>hand him a one dollar bill
>cool person of colour says i'm not supposed to tip
tipping is retarded
That's why before I give them any money, I initiate the ACHMP (Army Confirmation Hand Movement Protocol). If he knows anything about the military, he'll know about the protocol (taught for 6 months in basic training).
>american tipping "culture"
Literally just fuck my shit up tier
Instead of putting pressure on the businesses(unions are bad, m'kay)
you'd rather put pressure on ordinary people to save their fellow humans from starving due to inhumane business decisions.
Although yeah, what OP described is basically stealing
Our "tipping" culture is something to be severely respected.
It's not to put pressure on a business. You do it for a better experience.
I'm a guide in Montana. I don't know if I'm going to get a tip, ever. I put up with a lot of shit from people and that little extra means I don't bitch and I tell you what I know.
Or else I'll do the bare minimum (which is a lot) and I won't give you extreme advice.
Without a tip I give you the full experience, bar-none. With it, I'll show you shit that only I know m8.
>Without a tip I give you the full experience, bar-none. With it, I'll show you shit that only I know m8.
And how do you get your hands on the tip /before/ you actually give the guide?
Fat cunt can into logic.
>tips for the custodian
well that's dumb
>taking the medal
if you percieved this as anything other than a loved one leaving a prized symbol of one of their many triumphs/hardships endured, you are one dense motherfucker, and should put the medal back. And it's kind of a dick move taking the coins too.
Then you would know he was a vet and you could give him money and an ambulance call. Idk how you would get PTSD from that though.
Thats why the poster said "If you actually did this"
Rather, it's simply to big and I know where the trout are, or where the elk are.
It's too big and what I love about this place is that it's wild.
When we've made it like your country, and nothing is wild and we're just all the same and we can't have anything that's calculated or systemic. That's where we've lost.
America isn't like Europe, these things aren't common knowledge that the rivers in X wilderness are amazing and A B C is how you find Y river and Z vista. Generally only locals will know and you won't know if you missed something or if your guide didn'y tell you everything if a local doesn't indicate.

>Our "tipping" culture is something to be severely respected.
tipping was seen as a form of bribery until business owners realized they could get away with not paying their employees and passing the cost off to you
Did you tip the cleaning staff who would have come in after you left to clean?
Generally its better to tip rather than not, if you aren't supposed to the person will give back the tip unless they are a dick.
Jesus Christ Tommy, English is your mother tongue, learn to speak it.
I mean, holy shit Cletus, if you took half an hour each day studying your own language instead of fucking your sister, maybe you wouldn't sound like a complete idiot.
Haha god damn Ryan, tipping is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.
Great, isn't it?
Baiting other westerners is fucking hilarious.
"YOU DID THE WHAT WITH THE TIP?"
Naw man, we're cool.
Doesn't matter. Unless you include tip in the bill then deal with it, stupid waiterfags
should have gotten a STEM degree instead
that ensures that you have to put up with their shit the whole time, and if they're assholes, they're probably not gonna tip anyway.
Why make it so unpredictable? If are simply paid a wage you can live on, why bother putting up with shitty customer's BS? It just perpetuates the culture that "The Customer is always right" when 99% of the time, they aren't.
Lol, it's too pettily even for us, ruspoors. Why you leave tips to all hotel personnel then? Is pressing elevator button really worth 5$? You can't reach it out by hand while driving a fatcart? Americans even tip hairdressers for a service that they already paid, why you can't do the same to the taxi driver? Especially if you ask to drive really fast and driver break some rules so you don't miss your flight or whatever.
The guy to press the elevator is a meme, they don't exist as far as I know. If he did exist I would tip him simply because its manners. I tip the hotel cleaners by leaving money out with a note when they clean my room. There are just certain jobs you tip and certain jobs you don't. Taxi driving is just one you don't as far as I know, and I am not going to reward a man for breaking laws unless I specifically ask him to.
I though that everywhere in the world taxi driver isn't really a job, but something like near-criminal activity and if you are new in the city you catch a taxi and ask for hookers or drugs and he will deliver you to the right place. It's weird that in the USA they even aren't tipped.
