  • Tipping do feel kinda good tho and if someone's a dick having the choice to make them mad and give them less money is pretty american so But yeah if working for a bit in restaurants has made me feel anything it's that uneducated kiddos giving backhanded compliments and passive aggressive service do not deserve 20-40 an hour just to bring food 30ft from the kitchen to your table

  • $1500 for text books!?

  • Don't they have state mandated percentage tipping in England? Meaning if you don't tip what it requires you to tip (reads in the bill) the restaurant can call cops. Maybe it was some fake news, but this is what i heard.

  • Nuh uh I don't tip. I don't believe in it

  • I'm brazilian and when we have a awesome service we give like... 10 bucks and thats like maximum... but it's optional

  • Nobody tips in india

  • I gave the waitress just the tip. She wasn't happy with me.

  • I'm not tipping anyone, fuck that I'm already paying more than my meal is worth so they can pay employees and make profit

  • In Sweden, no one tips cuz most of the people at restaurants get decent payments and buys yeezys. I'm not joking when I was at dollar store (not a proud moment in my life) did the employee have expensive Jordans.

  • Occasionally ill round up a bill and tell them to keep the change but that usually costs me around $1 to do. Also I'm Australian.

  • Basically America is one huge scam

  • Consuela lol

  • He circled Ireland as part of the UK I'm pissed😂😂

  • So actually the Chinese goverment tips couples about +-100.000 for every third kid, while the US asks for a 15% tip when you are paying your taxes since they put so much effort into taking your money

  • In Italy it's considered rude to tip

  • In Canada you should never tip more than 8%. Because this the amount they declare when paying their taxes according to Canada Revenue Agency. If you're a shy looser, feel free to tip more, after all you deserve a harder life for being a simp.

  • In Finland we don't ever tip. I have never seen anyone tipping.

  • Bruh stuff that, that sounds complicated

  • Minimum wage is still underpaying Employers don’t get money outta nowhere, *they take it*

  • eipä ollu suomessa

  • Tipping is pretty weird tbh. So is American VAT. the fuck you guys doing over there?

  • Its illegal to pay your employees less than minimum wage.

  • Restaurants and pizza delivery especially NEVER raise pay when short.

  • Restaurants and pizza delivery especially NEVER raise pay when short.

  • Im Australian and tipping confuses me just pay your workers.

  • In Norway we generally never tip. It's very uncommen, sometimes it's even rude.

    • @Dr Door Nope! But, if i break my head, smashing the keyboard out of anger and then go to the hospital i don’t need to pay the bill.

    • Dont you guys get free oil money

  • In America, if you don’t tip the waiter who killed your mom *you’re still a terrible person*

  • You don't mention that tipping helps a waiter who is working 20 tables make more money than if they are working 1 table, which makes sense

  • In croatia if you tip something thats not change you become a prime target to get robbed

  • What the heck was the review of that restaurant lol the bloody killed me

  • Wow, as a Chinese living in China for over 20 yrs, I never know punch cards for new couples is even a thing.

  • in finland tipping isnt a thing

  • Rural Southeast Asian Countries: I thought tipping is a sci-fi.

  • So your saying... I should just never tip so the wait staff can get paid?

    • In America only tip for good service but if the wait staff gets paid minimum wage in addition tips it is not an equal playing field for the people in the kitchen and other stuff

  • But you dont tip people in Australia?

  • Now I notice a bunch of smug comments from non-Americans saying how they’re not going to bow down to America’s nonsensical tipping rules, they’re just gonna pay the price of their meal and be done with it But here’s a point not covered in this video: restaurants are “supposed” to cover the difference between tips and minimum wage, but Fun Fact, sometimes they just... don’t do that. It’s a beautiful thing called Wage Theft and suuure you could sue your employer, but most don’t because it’s little losses that add up over time, because they’re afraid of losing their jobs/retaliation, and because the department that handles those cases is super understaffed in most states so they usually only go after bigger cases PS... restaurants Only have to pay up to minimum wage, which has stagnated for decades, so minimum wage is no longer a living wage

    • It's not supposed to be a living wage 😐

  • You're on watchlist of waiters and delivery people

  • In the UK we pay our staff properly.

    • Yayyyy for corporate uk

  • australian, can confirm no one here has ever tipped, ever. Provably because waitresses earn just as much as the rest of us.

  • My dad just always tips $5.

  • Dear managers of restaurants, having a suggested tip print out on the receipt helps SO much with making sure your staff is fairly tipped. Most POS software has an option for it.

  • No tipping in Japan

  • In Israel we got to tip 10% and it’s literally the waiter paycheck And only if the waiter didn’t got the minimum wage the owner paying him

  • Tipping in the Balkan area adds confusion the the waiters whenever I've tried. They'll take it tho

  • >Universal Healthcarre >Japan Lmao I literally had a healthcare bill equivalent to 4000 dollars two months ago

  • Don't tip at all in Japan lol, it just isn't a thing herre. Last week I saw a cashier rush out of the store to give a woman a 1 yen coin she'd forgotten (equivalent to like 0.7 dollars)

  • In my country you can say keep the change but if you tip it won’t be offensive I guess... but super weird

  • Everyone is a coward tip 0 next time many servers that I know easy make over a couple grand a week but millions and millions of factory workers get paid minimum what is it 8.25 an hour ? I don’t recall but that’s where your tips should be going not some unnecessary waiter. you could easily pick up your plate from the kitchen and serve your drink yourself and wipe your table down when done pay at the exit. Save your butt hurt comments for your mama.

  • HAhhahHhahahHaha great massage therapist joke you jerk face!😤😤 Everyone knows you tip your massage therapist! and i will have you know that as a massage therapist you tip us double if you want the happy-er ending....

  • I live in Kenya and I can confirm we tip for good service but sometimes mainly in the coast you do not tip because the food takes like one hour to come it's not because the food is hard to cook the coast people are just relaxed.

  • i hate tipping 33% of my kids

  • I’m Singaporean we don’t tip we have something called GST goods and service tax which is a 7% increase of the price which means if a potato is $10, with get you’ll pay 10.70 in a supermarket

  • I love youe video brother...but worked years in the service industry. Brother not tipping us could be different of not making rent.

  • Last year, i went to us, i didnt tip and the people looked at me like i was an alien. (i live in australia )

  • you guys r complicated

  • Jobs with tips has a minimum wage of like 2.50

  • how about .... you, as a restaurant owner, pay your worker better salary?

  • Guy really highlighted Switzerland when they have a market based healthcare system. Still waiting for the US to implement that cuz fuck the government

  • Thsi guy needs to stop using that map

  • Look tipping isn’t an ideal system I agree. But do not come to America unless you are willing to tip. It’s not funny and it’s not cool to be ignorant or try to get away with it. When you’re in another country you play by it’s rules. That’s what decent and reasonable people do. To Americans, not tipping is the moral equivalent of stealing. Think about people besides yourself for once.

  • Woo yeah defining this issue in black and white terms while using sarcasm and obviously targeted humor to mock any people who may potentially disagree

  • In the Netherlands if the service was super quick or super good we give around 5 euro and that’s the maximum!!!

  • "almost all first world countries" *Chile is highlighted Im flattered No we are not first world by any stretch, get us out of here

    • @AzekiaXVI Brazil is part of BRICS... so there's no way that many industrialized countries would actually consider it to be one.

    • I think the only countries in LATAM that may say they are first world would be Peru and Brazil. Becuase i live in Argentina and i don't think we're first world.

    • Dude, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan were highlighted, which I'm pretty sure aren't first world countries.

  • one notable exception - the united states of america one _less_ notable exception - canada...lmao

  • Everyone should just fight to the death for their tips at the end of the night

  • why cant they include the tips in the bill?

  • Oi

  • Why can’t they just pay minimum wage lol. Makes Mcdonalds look like a good job

  • As an Indian girl living in New Zealand, I’ve literally never tipped, like tipping is foreign concept only known by America. We do have these boxes by the counters which you can but some cents in, but like only saints and nuns actually put money in it

  • The amount of rent-free in this thread

  • They do not tip in Taiwan

  • I hate American 🤦🏽‍♀️ we are just an embarrassment

  • I can understand tipping if you are a pain to serve or the server does a really exceptional job, e.g. if you order £100 of pizza, it's fair to tip a £5, but I'm not tipping for no reason. Why should I pay someone extra for doing their job? And if they aren't being paid properly, get better employers, don't expect tourists to make up the difference

  • "it depends on what ending you want" 1:39

  • honestly the whole tipping making up for the company not paying employers thing is super screwed up. that along with the pressure to tip where people literally get mad if they dont get tipped. im a delivery driver and i always hear drivers getting mad for not getting tipped and like honestly its super annoying. its free money

    • It’s a tax dodge.

  • "Tipping is done in New Zealand". Speak for yourself buddy

  • In russia, the waiter tips us

  • Hi, waitress here: Please tip your servers, I such a physical and exhausting job. You have to be in your feet for 8 hours and get screamed at because of things that aren't your fault. We get paid around 2.50 per hour and when you get your check it all goes down for medical stuff in case something happens to you, food it doesn't matter if you order it, Ect My last check was 13 dollars. We survive by tips, the restaurant would not make up for it and we normally work on weekends and holidays.

  • I'm pretty much unanimously thought of as cheap by basically everyone I've ever talked to about this subject. This video sums it up perfectly, as did Mr.Pink in Reservoir Dogs. Thanks for not being a coward!

  • Tipping is what caused all the great depressions. Hence right now

  • In Japan, giving tips is frowned upon.

  • Brazil is not a first world country.

  • I’m sorry, after being a bartender for a few years; bartenders and waitresses DO NOT need to make 6 figure salaries. Tipping customs are stupid as hell. I made radically more than my manager via tips. No wait staff gets less than minimum wage anymore.

    • Hi, waitress here: 2.50 per hour All goes out in taxes Last check was 13 dollars Please don't say that

  • Europe doesn't tip, ever.

  • Is that a R5 from SA? At 0:19

  • Actually the highest tip is Turkey goverment when you buying car you buy 2 car for the goverment

  • actually in japan you dont tip, they see it as a humiliation

  • Wait, they actually pop up asking for a tip on a card payment!?! Jesus christ, that is so awful.

  • He's giving off sovereign citizen vibes and idk how I feel about it

  • This guy is either a programmer or is learning to program in his free time. I've seen the Eclipse IDE, those Java books and I've seen plenty of other references to programming in his videos.

  • America was behind on sl*very too, more specifically, behind on getting rid of the institution.

  • I really liked the fact that the only country you didn't circle was turkey and it wasn't even notable

  • Wait so the wages of wait staff are like RNG?

  • What sucks across USA&Canada, is states/provinces have different minimum wages in place for servers/employees. But still we maintain the same 15-20% tip. So one state state has $2/hour salary, while a province in Canada has $15 wage. So on a hundred dollar meal, (pretend it's the only meal served that hour), one server gets 2+$15=17, in another province/state has 15min wage + $15% tip = 30 bucks. $17 vs $30. We are stuck on 15-20% tip across the continent but don't take into account differences in min wage. Of course Min Wage gets factored into the price of the meal in the first place. So now the meal is 110 bucks and we still add on 15%. My Wife & I constantly argue this tipping BS. For 10 years now I just give my wife the friggin bill and I close my eyes and she tips what ever the f*ck she wants. So yeah, having the courage to tip zero is great, unless your married. And no tipping between 0-15%, 7.5% doesn't work. Marriage compromise doesn't work that way for the husband. Sure you can try tipping 7.5% and that works for about a month. Then your wife will feel ashamed when the waitress looks her in the eye, and next time when you try to tip 7.5%, she'll ask, can't we compromise dear? So then you're back up to 10% cuz it's just easier. You then realize as the husband, you really have very little say in the finances of the marriage. When you're first married you think stuff is going to be equal. Nope.

  • In HK, we always have a 10% service charge on top of the check so no one gets to worry. When I was in the US, the struggles lied on whether to overpay the tips. While the charge + a 20% tip was $17.xxx, I only got the $20 bill and was ashamed to ask for the change.

    • yeah and paying 20 for something less than 15 doesnt feel so good

  • We dont tip in Asia

  • I was just wondering about where is the line? Who should we tip? Barber? Plumber? At a shop? At a bank? A public employee? A police at traffic stop? The border guard? When does tipping turn into bribery?

  • in europe its also tip 15-20%

  • Idc if I go to america I'm not gonna tip

  • In south africa it's kinda expected to tip 10% for sit down meals
