In Japan they get offended if you tip, in their system they price the food at value for what it’s worth and to tip extra is to be insulting.

I had a cab driver get out of the car and chase me down to return the tip. They view customer service as part of their job. Amazing concept right Americans?

It's because America feels like it's built on too much greed.

The movie “Wall Street” from 1987 has the famous quote “greed, for lack of a better word, is good”. It seems American Businesses heard that quote and ran with it as hard and as far as possible with it. We’ve lost our perspective here and forgot to give a shit about our neighbors.

I can hear Michael Douglas' delivery even though I haven't seen that movie in years!
