    We don't get tips here in aus. But I heard that in America all your items you buy don't have tax added to them? Am I right?

    Indeed! I've had both the good and bad sort of surprise, as well as just the random surprising sort lol.

    I used to deliver pizzas (in Australia) and I got tips!

    And I used to work in a bar and got tips, especially when the regulars won money, also in Australia.

    But $45 in tips is pretty good right?

    Nyx I think in America the listed price is without tax, and then they ad it, but they put tips on top of it for service? Not sure.

    What is the sort of ordinary wage in the US for like cafes or food places and what not?

    Oh dear I wish we didn't pay tax on anything we bought, life would be better. We are taxed over our eyeballs, it is astounding what they find to tax.

    I am taxed yearly on my car. So not only did I pay sales tax, a transportation tax, some other tax to do with emissions or something, I also pay tax yearly to license my car. But add in the gas tax I pay every time I fill up and the road tax. I get taxed on my electricity bill to pay for those that don't pay. Pay tax on non essential food items, tax on clothes, electronics, phone bills. Once again my phone bill has 5 separate tax items on it.

    Each state tax differs but then there is federal tax as well. Minimum wage is $7.75 I think? So for a bottom job that's what you get. When I started working minimum wage was $5.50

    For anyone of working age. Unless you work for your parents. Then they can pay whatever they want if they want to pay you.

    Was it scarey delivering pizza?
    I got like 50c or spare change tips when I used to work at kfc in highschool lol I just chucked it in the charity boxes. :) (but that don't count)
    I have never tipped any one before, except my farrier.
    Ahh now im confused! Lol

    Na delivering pizza was okay. Girls get better tips. I'd get 10 bucks from one person sometimes. Added up over the night. The bar was good though, they'd sometimes give me $20 or so.

    Wages like that are pretty rough

    Jeepers. Even in dodgy places that pay cash in hand to international students, no jobs pay less than about $10 an hr here. At 18 I was earning $18 an hr as a shop assistant with no experience. The low minimum wage is why people tip generously in the US but I'd rather not have to rely on a good night if I waited tables...

    Anyway! Good work on $45 in tips! I'm so clumsy I'd make a shocking waitress lol, have this twitch in my hand that makes me chuck things all over the place.
