Subject: Courier Mail Article: Many Aussie women lack manners and are 'foul-mouthed and loud'
Panther    4/22/2009 6:29:32 PM
http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,25365800-952,00.html Please pardon me if this has absolutely nothing to do with defense related issues. But this article on Australian society really blindsided me! Is it true? If the link doesn't work, then i will paste the article in a follow up post.

We don't tip as much because we aren't used to the lower standards of living apparent in your country. Pay your service people more and we won't have to tip them. Simple.
 
It also seems that your teachers aren't paid much either, as you seem to lack basic grammar. " u wankers" is spealt "you wankers".
 
Cheerio.

The fact that people in America don't make enough from their jobs to avoid the need to request additional money from customers simply for doing their jobs doesnt say much for their society. When you pay your bill at a restaurant you are paying both for the goods (the food) and the services (the waiter and the chef), that should be plenty.
 
I know i'm young (21) but i've never given a tip or seen anyone give a tip and the only time i've ever even seen a tip container was at a BYO thai restaurant in armidale (good food though).

The F&B industry is the only one that gets away with not paying minimum wage legally and were probably the first industry to be able to categorize all non-management as "contractors" whose tips were actually a "sales commission".  So it isn't a service job, its a sales job.
 
But when you average in all of the skimmed drawers, skimmed liquor, smuggled food and unreported tips, both the restaurant industry and the various levels of government get their just desserts.
