Standard tipping is being followed in the country of United Kingdom. Giving tip usually indicates that you are satisfied with the service that the staff gave you. So, like for example, you ate in a restaurant and the waiter was very polite and serve you well, then after you check out or pay your bill, you will give that waiter a tip through handling it directly to him or just by leaving it on the table. Service charges are at times added to the bill when there is a large number of group ate in that restaurant like for instance, there were six people in that group so, the restaurant might charge a service fee for that on top of the bill upon check out. When that happens, it would then be the decision of the customer if they will still add a tip by giving them to the server or by the leaving on the table or not at all since they already paid for it through the service charge however, they must know that there will not be a problem if they would decide not to pay for it. A restaurant is not the only place where people give tips in United Kingdom but also any place where they receive help from someone.

As most of the people know, Italy has a lot of staff who are very patient when it comes to waiting for their customers however, when it comes to tipping, it could be considered that Italy is not one of those countries who give tips. They could give tips if they want to however, since it is not their custom, then it is just normal if they decide not to. On the other hand, this country has a good reason as to why it is not their custom to give tips to the waiter.
