James Corden thinks Americans have gone overboard with tipping.
Actually I’m the captain now…
We British are miserable bastards, that’s why we don’t tip
In the UK we don’t even have to tip, if we don’t tip the waiters are completely fine as they are all paid the minimum wage. But we still tip occasionally if the food and service was actually good.
In the UK, many restaurants will charge you an 18% Gratuity anyway … so the tip is added to the bill automatically.
Hot kwoffy! James Hot Kwoffy! ☕️?
Screw tipping. If you don’t like the job, leave. Why is it the customer’s responsibility to pay extra? Tipping should be out of goodwill and not a requirement.
the fact tat the guy gave him a bunch of coins added so much comical value!
JC is a funny guy but his monlogues are really poor.
Tipping is quite ridiculous. It’s not my fault the establishment you work at doesn’t pay you enough. And why is it my job to supplement your income? Restaurants need to pay their employees a decent wage, at least minimum.
I agree when did tipping become a requirement.
I so wish tipping wouldn’t exist. Unfortunately, it does. I do wish it was factored into the price though.
They used to use tips to make up the workers wages in the England (big article in recent years saying that they are/did going to change this. I think they still do it though ?). They probably use the tips for wages in America……I remember going into Nero’s coffee with my Dad and seeing that they changed the tip box for a charity box after this new law or something came out (They probably used some/most of the charity money for the wages things instead)……..Another strange thing I found out years ago, is that an ex friend of mine who’s parents used to run a pub said that they got taxed on a certain amount expected tips. This was I between £2000-4000 ?.
That’s why I love Sweden. We don’t have to tip at restaurants or cafés, I don’t think they even accept tips at most places. The price of the food already has the tipping included and the waiters are paid a decent wage instead.
I agree. A couple weeks ago I was at a Chinese restaurant with my family, and we tipped our waiter 10%. I should add that his service wasn’t that good and he was a little too friendly with us. He then proceeded to count the cash and said “Okay this is for the meal, and what is this, the tip? Really? The minimum tip is 15%.”
As a waitress and someone who lives SOLEY off tips. This is a horrible message to send to people.
As an expat from the UK now living in the US I find tipping stupid confusing. I tip at cafe’s, restaurants and bars. Everyone else can just jog on. Sorry I will learn to live with my decision.
