Tourist Restaurant Punishments Travel Tip

Generally, if you want incredibly bad service, go overseas to tourist restaurant. The only solution is to cook your own food, you cannot change the world.

However, a little payback is good fun.

I accept 90 percent of the time; I cannot change people places or things. However, for sport, this seems like a great idea. Quid pro Quo, you do to me, I give to you, and not the right thing to do, they should have left 25 minutes ago, but accepted and volunteered for bad service.

Tipping Outside the USA
First of all this is almost exclusively a USA cultural phenomena, and you should not and do not need to TIP.


In addition, in tourist areas, they will always say you need to TIP; it is the nature of the beast, an ugly part of the planet, not the beautiful swan part.

Generally, great service is not possible outside your home country. It is not fair and not possible for people who come from some primitive country to suddenly develop manners. If you want a truly great restaurant, then go home. If you want truly great food in another country, start to eat street food and forget the restaurant, the best place to get food poisoning as they unload the three-day-old food on unsuspecting tourist. Restaurants overseas do not lose money because food spoils; it is not part of their cultural makeup.

All in all, I never say anything, I just walk out, and try to find smiling faces, the first clue to a healthy and happy person.

If I was really clever, mean, naughty and mischievous, I would use fish emulsion, that fertilizer for plants to make this sign. I am presently at one of the biggest tourist traps I have ever encountered, these thoughts float in and out of my brain.
