why is 18 there?
it's not customary to tip in britain?
btw in spain it's hell. you give them, say 20 euros when the bill is 15 and they keep the change.
after the second time that happened I asked him back and asked the money back :D (we're poor people too my friend :D)

the trick is NOT to smile when you pay NOT to say anything. keep a grumpy face and have a very hostile expression to your face.
(or have the exact change, plus the tip you actually want to give)

oh tip to tipping in greece:
you can expect your full change when you pay.
then, if you want (it's very rude not to do it) you can leave some change on the table and leave.

another practice (that will make them think you know the customs well) it to tell them to round up the change. ie the bill is 5.40 euros? you give 10 euros bill and tell them to keep 6 euros.

rates:
50 eurocent=cheapskate but ok
1 euro = perfectly adequate
2 euros=somewhate over the top but ok
5 euros= that morning you got the most amazing sex in your life and you're happy

over 5 euros = brad pitt

(although in spain i followed the greek custom (when in rome etc, it was not rome) and gave 1 euro (or 50 cents) and got cursed something i'm sure very colorful in spanish :D cheers :D)

It is for some things. We're notoriously terrible tippers, and don't really understand how or what to tip.

Obviously this is a generalisation and everyone here is fine at tipping, but in general, we're rubbish.

I don't get 18 either.

I also don't get number 6 - the one about putting a divider between your shopping someone else's at the checkout.

one time a rather unconnected group of people decided to go to a 3 day excursion on an island. we had somewhat fun.
at a restaurant we went the service was attrocious. plus they were very very rude (maybe they didnt like athenians, who knows, it did seem that way though) i mean there was mocking and stuff.
we left 0.1 cent as a tip.
HA there
(we also left quickly because you know, it was their 'hood)

In a pretty fancy restaurant with Tizzy recently I tipped the waiter 25p because I was too retarded* to use the card machine properly.

Luckily I did realise I'd been retarded in time, tell him I was a moron and give him some cash though.

*or drunk**, tasting menu with wine + port with the cheese course
** yeah, drunk and retarded
