Very noble of him, but for most working class plebes, $2000 would be a whole months wages

There are rich people who leave no tips. Good on him.

He'd be welcome to take a private English class any time he wants!

Nice gesture if you have the money.  Plenty of other celebs and other rich people could learn from this.  many of the better off I know or deal with are pretty tight with their money (unless spending on themselves).   One of the reasons they stay rich.

Nice gestureAt the same time, what % does it represent from his fortune.

If I were leavin 100$, it may be more a relative effort for me than for him, I am about sure.

Sorry, I hardly ever give tips because service quality is very poor very very often, I live in France. It works better in the US and some waiters deserve well.

We need to ask ourselves why there is a need to leave a tip, why can't restaurants pay a decent wage so customers are not held hostage to supplement the wage of servers. I find tipping outdated and reflects an unequal society.

Some workers earn more with wage plus tips, than if paid with just a higher wage with no tips

I met Mark Wahlberg back in 1997 a real cool guy and very down to earth, funny, professional, never met his brother, but I can imagine he’s equally as cool, definitely admire people like that. I always teach my kids to tip more than the usual, it makes their day and these people are so important for the jobs they do, we should always remember that.

Except there's no tipping in Japan. Kids tripping?

Your kids are in Japan and we don't tip.
