When we first moved to the UK, we'd been there maybe a month or so, and had eaten out several times locally, so we'd quickly gotten used to the modest tipping.Good price! I think a 16oz Budweiser at Cowboys game is 15 bucks.
I have also found that being a generous tipper is somewhat an "investment."
It feels so weird when I go to some countries where tipping is not expected.
We made our first weekend trip to London and were sat at the bar drinking, went to settle up, and my wife started doing the 20% thing in her head, then said something like, "Oh, yeah, I can just round up the bill for the tip."
The bartender happened to be a young American woman, and she looked at my wife and said matter-of-factly, "I'm an American, I'm used to more than that."
