You can always ask me about American cultural oddities like tipping… (And why not apologize for LEAVING ME? TO HAVE FUN?)

I will bear that in mind! I mostly am just paranoid there’ll be times I should tip and I won’t realise it.

Also I really hate how taxes aren’t included in listed prices. Why you gotta be so complicated, America?

(And I will still be textable! So not that different!)

Tips: restaurant bills (18%), cabdrivers (18%), leave in hotel room for the maid, curbside check in at the airport, and the person driving the airport shuttle if they put your bags in the van (but not a regular bus driver or anything). A dollar or two (or a dollar per bag) are fine for any of these except the first two. Restaurants, cabdrivers, and maids are the ones that you really shouldn’t forget.

Don’t forget to tip your bartenders!!

I generally do 15-20% if I’ve run a tab, depending on the drinks ordered. If it’s a bill full of beers I’ll probably tip on the lower end because that doesn’t take a lot of work from the bartender, but if it’s a bunch of complicated shots or cocktails I’ll tip more. Or about $2 per drink if I’m paying by the drink (again, more if it’s a complicated drink).

Thanks for the info. I knew these, but more confirmation is good - and actually it was the concept that you need to tip bartenders which made me have my initial “tipping culture is so different and confusing there” freak out.

Everyone forgot to mention that januarium needs to give her excellent Disney tour guide/rental car chauffeur a 75% tip. The other stuff isn’t really important, don’t listen to them.

I hope glee does one last competition and are really scared because the opposing team’s lead singer is supposed to be the best in the entire country and slowly the curtain goes up and there he is

"Booty Camp is about ALL of you dancing."

Okay, Will, except you didn’t let all of the club even come, instead you cherry-picked people and announced to everyone that they were bad dancers.

if you ever think a tv show is doing something completely weird, you should know that Glee once had a teenage girl giving birth to the music of Bohemian Rhapsody, cross cutting the scene with a showchoir of teenagers performing the song at the standard of experienced professionals.

And that’s not even the weirdest thing Glee’s ever done.
