The thing about everyone eating vegetarian if a certain number at the group are is a new one to me (and I can't imagine it'd go down too well here, anyway - there's still a lot of stigma about not eating meat!) but I could see it maybe being the "polite" thing to do in other cultures. So it may not be that you got it wrong, just that it's not the case here.
Speaking of which, Gillian's friend Lauren was a little uncomfortable because in the States apparently it's normal to "tip" the bar staff when you're out drinking and I had to keep reassuring her that it's not expected here, as she felt bad not giving them anything lol.
a certain number meaning even just one. like I said, I probably misinterpreted it. I feel like I'm always doing this (am I REALLY crazy or do people just forget what they say in front of me? aye!)
anyway, yea well idk about bars. ^^ but even dining out, it's customary to tip, what is it now? 15? or 20% of the bill, but many folks tip WAAAY more than that! But, haha, even my husband sees it as foreign and although he follows it here, he's like "this person didn't do anything!!!" haha and I'm like, "i know! you're right!" Thing is though, waitresses here get paid primarily in tips. The one case I saw firsthand was the waitress's hourly wage of $2 per hour (as opposed to like what is minimum wage now? like $5.50 or $6 or idk! point being, they get paid shit!) So...so yeah, I mean, I have to speak up for this. It's ridiculous here! But...well, ok I'll shut up now.
You'd tip here if in a restaurant. It's more as a show of thanks. But in general it's not expected. People are paid for their time, that's all you expect. ( speaking as a person who worked in a bar/restaurant and never got a tip).
oh, and for the record james , I wait for my change too...well I used to always do this. If i'm in a hurry or the service was alright, I'll just say keep the change.
ohh!!! haha something I adore that my husband does is...he'll figure in the amount of the tip with the bill so that it rounds to an even number. So like 16.59 bill plus 3.41 tip comes to 20.00 even (did i do that right? haha i'm so slow, but i try) Amazing no?? Well, I think so, and that's the important thing.

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
