In a restaurant or cafe, do you do it?
Chatting with a friend this morning who is adamant it's standard practice in Aust, I didn't think so but now I'm not sure if I'm just stingy?!
Is it standard/expected?

Over here, I don't think it's standard or expected, however I think it's pretty common to leave a tip. Even if it's a small 'keep the change' type tip.
I'm not made of money, so sometimes the tip isn't big, but I like to leave a little something.
I would only not tip if the standard of service was really bad.

I generally don't, or if I do it's a 'keep the change' one. I didn't think waiters got to keep their tips mostly? A lot I have come across said it goes back into the company etc?

It's not standard here as waitstaff get paid pretty well. I tip if the service is really good, but that doesn't happen too often in Perth
I normally do a "keep the change", mainly because I hate change haha or I just throw it in the tip jar.

Same here. I tip if the food & service is good. If it's rubbish & the waitstaff do the 'I can't see you' thing then there is no way I'm leaving a tip.

I think it is not standard practice, but it is becoming common here is aus. I have seen tip bowls on the counters of restaurants. One I noticed had a world vision card so I guess the donations went to that charity. I thought that was a good idea. I think people don't mind handing back the small change as a tip, but I hope it never becomes routine or expected. It is tricky travelling overseas, having to remember that you have to add the tax, and then also a tip. Pain in the b*tt. Marie.

No I don't tip unless it is outstanding service. I did when I've in the USA. I do write letters or fill in comment cards if I get good service anywhere Eg bunnings target restaurants.
