Re: We haven't had a conversation about tipping in awhile

Service (and tax as well, btw) is indeed included in Europe, but the staff is payed so badly that we still tip. The amount varies from one country to another. Usually, it's around 3-5%. You simply round up a little. For example for a coffee for $1.8 you'd pay $2.0, with a $23.5 meal you'd tell the waiter to make it $25 or $26.
Bof, over here you can tip, a few coins only but there is nothing wrong if you don't. It's not expected.

Brits aren't completely relaxed with tipping
Ah, that must be why we don't have all this tipping nonsense ! How can you enjoy your meal if you're not relaxed ? There are priorities in life !
Not on strike.
