Re: Out of Character
The Hotel had one... you might assume that other locations frequented by visitors would also have them... or perhaps for sale at newspaper kiosks.

Re: Out of Character
In the big city, a dollar a day is poverty... $1.50 a day is poor ... rents and costs are high and travel from outside the city is expensive relatively speaking. As usual, having a bit more money allows one to shop and save.

Re: Out of Character
Eh... Say lower middle class... Think downtown Sydney, not out in less expensive places.

Re: Out of Character
I wouldn't want to try and make it on $1500 /2 weeks in Sydney, not even $1500 US!

Re: Out of Character
$1500 in some parts of the US is not as bad in others, say like New York or San Francisco.

Re: Out of Character
Precisely my point. NYC is not going to be as cheap as living out in the country.

Actually, in Australia that is a pretty generous tip...over 11%. What is normal in the US, given that $2 is a lot in those times! That is like a $100 tip nowadays!

Re: Out of Character
The US pushes the 15% and 20% for exceptional service... I was using that standard. The tip gets split between waiter, bus boy, Maitrie De and perhaps some others, so 10% isn't so much in that light. Many years ago, the bus boy got 15-20% of the tips, The Maitre De got something similar and the waiter got the remainder ... frequently today,  the Restaurant also wants a cut too.

For this period (and the fact that you were there for perhaps two hours or so, as well as getting exceptional service), I'd say 20%

Most times 10-15% is quite adequate, depending on service.  Rather than make a fuss, let's just say you gave him $22 and everyone was all smiles.

Re: Out of Character
When you show up at Gerhardt's and tell him you'd like to start ;-) assuming you don't spend too much more money of course.

We have not officially married yet...we are just engaged unless I missed a bit. Of course, the marriage will come soon enough, perhaps at the end of our training...
