Oｈ ! My God Story NO. ５1
I have pleasures in living abroad.
I have a few pleasures in living abroad.
One of them is to give a tip.
That's because everyone enjoys that.
I specially like it in the following case.
I went to New Zealand three years ago.
I stayed at Hotel Oakland.
There was a man in the hotel lounge at night.
He was playing the piano very well.
He played various hit songs on the piano.
I was sitting comfortably on a sofa and was drinking.
I was in a very good mood.
I was impressed by his playing.
I gave him a tip.
It was fifty New Zealand dollars.
He was very glad,
and played some Japanese songs for me.
I started to like giving a tip since that day.
I give a tip in New York.
I want to give a tip when I hear the wonderful playing.
Then it is always appreciated.
I'm glad to see them happy, too.
What a simple way to make someone happy !
God created this wonderful thing, tipping.
But I don't always like giving a tip.
That is when tipping is an obligation.
For example, at a restaurant, for a taxi driver,
for a hotel porter, etc...
Oｈ ! My God.
I think there are too many obligatory tips.
