Guest：Really？In American bars you pay drink by drink as you get it.
Bartender：But isn't that too much of trouble？
Guest：Well，yes， it is.But then it is much safer. You see，American bars can be very crowded and it is very hard to keep an eye on everyone.Besides you can never know what may happen when people drink too much.
Bartender：I see.But we've never met with any experience of a guest sneaking out on us without Paying his bill or a situation where the guest is unable to pay his bill or refuses to pay his bill.
Guest：Well，the way I see it，you've been pushing your luck and you've been lucky so far.That's all.O.K.，here is 45 yuan and you can keep the change.
Bartender：That's very kind of you， sir. But there is no tip－ping in China.And here is the change.
Guest：I'm sorry.I didn't know that.You see，I just got in town a few hours ago from Hong Kong.No tipping？That's good.But just for curiosity's sake， how can you survive without tips？
Bartender：Just as everybody else.You see，we are paid the same monthly wage as everybody else in the hotel.
Guest：I see.The reason I was wondering whether you could make a living without taking tips is that in my country bartenders are paid a much lower basic hourly pay than people in non－tipping positions.They expect the tips from the customer to make up the difference.If they don't get enough tips they won't be able to make a living.
Bartender：And do they usually get enough tips？
Guest：Yes，they do most of the time.They generally make pretty good money.
Bartender：That's good.（seeing another guest approaching） Excuse me.
