3 Everything you need to know about tipping in the USA

Ah, we've all been there: to tip or not to tip? And trust us when we say that there are few social customs in the USA more confusing than tipping. I once was in a bar in San Francisco clutching confused onto my five-dollar bill much to the annoyance of a bartender who had merely got a bottle of beer out of a fridge for me. After walking away disgruntled, it wouldn't be until the next round of drinks that he told me that tips were expected, even if the only effort involved was him cracking a bottle open.

I soon learnt that for many Americans, tipping is a normal custom, like adding VAT at the till. It was actually once so hated that it was illegal in six states, but it seems that Americans now love it more than ever. So to help you out a bit, here is a handy guide to why you should tip, where to do it, and how much.

0 40 Best Travel Tips

We travelled for 10 years before we turned our travels into a career. It was a valuable time for us because we spent 10 years experiencing travel for the pure love of it.
That decade helped us to really appreciate the quiet moments and learn how to travel independently before making a career out of travel.
We then travelled full time for nine years and learned a lot while seeing the world.

I remember our first trip together, we went to New York City.  At this point, we had been dating for sevral months and I knew Michelle always wanted to go.
I think it was the second day of our trip and it was time to eat lunch. Being in a new place, we wanted to find someplace unique to eat and settled on Shake Shack.  

Unfortunately, hanger struck before the nerves in Michelle’s stomach could tell her brain that food had arrived. The crisis was averted, food was eaten and we continued on our way.
