It’s 15 months into my fellowship now and if there is anything I dislike about living in this country then that would be the practice of tipping.

It seems the US it a bit of tip-crazy. Tipping expert Magnus Thor Torfason’s research shows that 31 service professions involve tipping in the US.

More on the custom of tipping in the US from my all time favorite podcast radio station/book – Freakonomics. Here you can read all about a very interesting podcast debating whether tipping should be banned or not.
