As an American..it's very hard not to tip...but it is the custom here in australia....unless you're at a very nice restaurant...than..you can choose to leave 10%.
The waitstaff get paid higher, unlike in the states where they get paid min wage and rely on tips for $$...
They may have "karma" jars which you can throw your extra change...
Otherwise...they really want to keep the custom the same....
Just a walkin' the dog
My apologies to the song I pinched this section of the lyrics from above. lol! But, when you see the pic to go with this tip you immediately understand why.
When I saw these pooches all dressed in their finery for their Sunday morning walk with their mistress who was, I dare say, out for a morning coffee/cake in Acland Street, I just had to stop her & ask if I could take a snap for the edification, entertainment & amusement of my fellow VTers.
So, please click on the photo to enlarge it as it really is worth a look.
