As a member of the "Tip-crazy Americans" I wanted to relate a funny$$$ story that happened in Canada when we visited a few years ago and stayed at a resort in Kimberly BC. We had ordered a pizza from a delivery place and when the pizza came, I handed my wad of Canadian Currency to my husband (probably about $50 Canadian) and asked him to pay. He just handed the guy the ENTIRE wad of money, didn't count, didn't ask. . .closed the door and remarked how happy the delivery guy seemed to be and said I must have given him a good tip YOU THINK?? It was over a $30 tip, so I imagine the guy WAS pretty happy. My husband is almost a TokyoRose kind of guy about tips, so at least he got the experience of seeing a service person who felt appreciated for once!
