Q: In which country is tipping at a restaurant considered an insult?
Speaking of tipping, I couldn't believe this when I read about it. A couple was arrested in Northeastern PA when they refused to pay the mandatory 18% gratuity added to their restaurant tab. Hauled off in handcuffs! They didn't feel that they should have been forced to tip at all. And who could blame them? Service from their server was practically non-existent! How awful was it? Click here to get the whole story. If I could be accused of ANYTHING, it would be OVER tipping. I've always felt that being a good server is an art, and if I ever tried it, it would be a disaster! But I think the restaurant and police were WAY out of line on this one. Taken away in handcuffs? Please!
