When did that happen and why did nobody inform me? Am I just a crazy guy running around tipping and everybody is just looks at me and sighs "There comes Tipping Tommy again. That guy is just crazy" (Note: My name is actually not Tommy).
But seriously I was kinda baffled when Patrick mentioned this, in fact I even looked up "to tip" just to be sure I'm not an idiot. And now I need to know: Where is this true? I live in Austria and we usually do tip at restaurants (did Patrick mean tipping at supermarkets or bakeries? Do you do that in the US?). Is Austria just crazy or what is going on? If you live somewhere else in Europe, please tell me if you normally tip or not.
