No Tipping in Developing World Countries
I have well intended Americans send me pages on how to Tip, every once in awhile I find pages on how to Tip. I always think to myself,
“Why do I need this? People do not Tip, why would I?”

80 percent of the world is normal, and 20 percent is overdeveloped.

The USA is not normal, it is overdeveloped.

The majority of people on the planet earn less than 15 US. Dollars per day, and they do not Tip.

Tipping is an USA thing, maybe a little European, but it is not normal for normal people to Tip.

Tipping is promoted, encouraged, and propagated as normal by the Tourist Industry, they are convincing you to do something that is not natural.

Tipping is not natural, it is abnormal.
