Thank you to the readers who got in touch about tipping and the item on it in the “Plain English” of July 24.
Yes, I’m aware that there are countries where there is no tipping at all. I did know there’s no tipping in Australia and South Africa, but I didn’t know about Japan. Or if I did, I forgot. Or maybe the wait staff never handed the change back. (It happens, but probably not in Japan.) …
Still, I really appreciated the stories on tipping. No wonder you aren’t a fan of the gratuity . . .
