Tipping While Traveling
“In the US you tip everyone; even if they didn’t anything for you! You just hand money to everyone in the street!” Exclaimed my friend visiting from Europe. It’s true, we are tipping nation.
The issue of tipping is not something you think about when you pack up your suitcase and head to the airport. You land at your destination and decide to grab a quick bite. You enjoy your meal ( in Athens they drop of your check immediately and then just print out new tickets if you order more) and then BAM the check comes. Er 5%, 10% or even 20%? What do you leave? You scramble and end up either under tipping or over tipping either way you feel foolish.
