Subject: Tipping in France
Tom, My mother-in-law who is a resident of Paris actually gets angry with me when I leave more than 5 Francs as a tip (even for an expensive meal). She insists that service is included and it is not necessary to tip other than this. I have never had a waiter get upset by this so I assume it is the norm. When I was with a (former) friend in NY and he under tipped we had the waitress chase us down the street and with a liberal use of four letter words told him what she thought. Jude
