Looks like I can scratch visiting San Francisco off my list of things to do. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...s-want-standard-25-tip.html?ito=feeds-newsxml The dining tax: San Francisco restaurants want standard 25% tip Proposals already causing anger among diners It's a question regularly asked by baffled diners all over the world: 'How much should I tip'? Many countries have wide variations for a standard tip, often leaving even the most experienced of travellers confused. However, restaurant workers in San Francisco, California, may be about to help by implementing a standard tip onto the bill. The only problem is that - whether your service is good or bad - it would be a whopping 25 per cent. The Contra Costa Times newspaper claims the proposals already have support from some high-class restaurants.
