I don't know how you meant this, but you must know tips are included in the check you are presented with, in that country. And I would agree that it can happen that service isn't as an American would expect. It can often result from cultural misunderstandings, as I have observed. On the other hand, no matter how bad service can be in France, I still prefer it to the busybody, always in your face, American waiter (waitress). I don't include the better restaurant in either country for this assessment.surely not...just ask those who have been out with me....I am very generous....if the service is good
but i will say....i do not tip in France
i do not tip in France
Service has nothing to do with not tipping in France, the normal meal I have found in a fine restaurant in any place in Europe is expected to be 3 hours, the reason I do not tip in France, is as you said it is included and not normally expected...although I believe the tradition is taking a bit of a change from people who have traveled to the US and now are beginning to expect some small tip...I do tend to find myself leaving something small on the tables in other countries, why I am not quite sure, but not like I would in the states.I don't know how you meant this, but you must know tips are included in the check you are presented with, in that country.

I found this one on the mentioned website particually ridiculous, not only did the guy give a good enough tip, but also the points only show how stupid the server must be.Total bill / Tip amount / Percentage: $28.27 / $4.73 / 16%
It's not really the tip that bothers me. I would, however, like to give these people an idea on how to behave while dining out.
1) Do not ignore your server. When I come to your table to take your order, do not start a conversation with whoever is a your table and completely ignore me. Are you not hungry?
2) When I tell you that we do not have spicy mustard, do not look at me in absolute disgust as if I am a liar. After working at this store for five years I know the menu, I promise.
3) When I deliver your food, please move cellphones, pictures, etc from the area I should place it. The chick in the picture was fucking ugly anyway.
4) If you plan to order wine, white zin is shit. Order something that has a flavor besides that of vomit.
5) Almost all servers hate campers. If you plan to take up a table (not just mine) for more than an hour and a half, please tip accordingly. I almost brought you pillows and sleeping bags.
