"It'll be a great place if they ever finish it." - O. Henry

I've seen pre-calculated tips at the bottom of credit-card bills before, but I've never seen any implication that the data is there for the aid of "foreign visitors." [Spotted tonight after some yummy tomato thyme soup and a cheeseburger at the Noho Star in, well, Noho.] In their defense, I guess tipping isn't a worldwide phenomenon. And of course, "foreign" may also here mean "unacquainted with proper New York City tipping techniques."
