  2. That tip isn't big at all.

  3. Very good - it shows the difference between a "tip" in English (which includes "service charge") and a "pourboire" in French (which does not include the 15% of service already on the bill and going directly to the waiters). Far too many dictionaries get this completely wrong by translating one by the other.

  4. ... except that the NYC tip would be one you would give to a server you were displeased with. $2 per every $10 is a better measurement.

    otherwise I adore all your work and comparisons;)

  6. Ha! I've never seen ANYONE leave that much in Paris. 3 euros? Maybe for a full dinner meal, but other wise for small things like coffee- no way.

    Also, don't you think it's a bit silly to be all "c'est le regard d'un amoureux de Paris sur un New York rempli de détails, de clichés et de contradictions"
    You're implying that Paris doesn't have cliches and contradictions! I'll be the first to say NYC does, but at least admit the same of the city of lights.

  8. Hi Vahram,
    Love your art, and creative and clever takes on Paris/New York differences.
    I wanted to use your pourboire/tip piece on my future first post on my blog (which is on my website www.michellebedandbreakfast.com)
    pour illuster un petite article sur--what else-- les pourboires.
    Je ne connais pas le protocole quant a l'utilisation.
    Merci de m'eclairer.
    PS: je poste ici car le link "say hello" n'a pas fonctionne. Hope you get this. Thanks.
    Michelle
