    A tip (also called a gratuity) is a payment made to certain service sector workers in addition to the advertised price of the transaction

    所以tip和gratuity 都可以當小費的意思

    gratuity

    贈物,賞錢,賀儀

    只是tip可以當作動詞, 給..小費

    tip當名詞也可解釋為祕訣

    以美國來說的話,tip 是比較口語話的說法。比方說,我們去吃完飯後,大家就會說,“how much should we leave for the tip?”(小費我們應該付多少?),很少人會在這種情況下用 gratuity 這個字。還有像nana 說的一樣,tip 可以當成動詞用 ("how much are you going to tip them?")。

    有的時候,賬單來了,小費已經加在上面時,你會看到賬單上寫著 "15% gratuity included" 之類的。基本上,gratuity 是在書寫或者是比較正式的場合才會用到。
