INTERNeX Canada: Culture Shock !

Hey guys,

How are u? I hope u’re doing well !! Today I’m gonna talk a little bit about my personal experience here in Vancouver.

Let’s talk about one thing that shocked me about Canada: Tipping!

tips For Canadians, it’s really natural to tip whenever they get some kind of service, and I don’t know why. Why do they tip whenever if maybe the service was not as good as it should have been?

In Spain for example, we don’t usually tip. I don’t mean we never do it, but we just tip when the service is really good. We don’t feel bad if we don’t tip and the service won’t get mad at you because you don’t do it! Simple, right? (Also if you’re a student it’s obvious you can’t afford tipping everywhere and everytime)

By the way, they usually tip between the 10-20% of the price. Isn’t that hard to believe?

I think that’s just their way to be: nice and kind people!

I don’t know if you agree with me or not, but I think it would be easier if the tip and the taxes are included in the final price, so I would’t have to use my calculator everytime I go out for dinner for example.

What do you think about this guys?

Best,

Mercedes
