Example sentences using "Us"

Q: Please show me example sentences with i heard that in US you need to give tips to most of the staff whose in the service industry. do I have to give tips when i am taking out food? or even the hotel front when checking out?.
A: These are the usual people you will interact with on a trip to the US. Some expect tips and some do not.

- a porter (someone who carries your bags for you at the airport or the hotel): $1 or $2 per bag
- the driver of a shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel: $1, plus another $1/bag if they help you with your bags
- taxi drivers: 10% to 15%
- the hotel employees that do check-in and check-out: no tip
- the hotel concierge (the hotel employee who helps you with problems like making reservations at a restaurant): $10 per request
- hotel housekeeping (the people who clean your hotel room): $2 or $3 per night
- restaurant waiters and bartenders: 15% to 20% of the total bill
- servers at buffet restaurants: 10% of the total bill
- people who deliver food to you: 10% of the total bill
- picking up food from a restaurant: $1
- cashiers at fast food restaurants: no tip
- cashiers at other kinds of stores: no tip
- baristas (people who make coffee drinks): $1, or the coins left over (for example, if you pay for a $2.50 coffee with a $5 bill, keep the $1 bills and leave a tip of 50 cents)

Some restaurants will assume that international tourists do not know how to leave a tip, so they will automatically add a "gratuity charge" to the bill. Make sure to check to see if this charge is on your bill before you leave a tip.

If the service you get is very poor, leave a smaller tip. If the service was very good, or they did something helpful that they did not need to do for you, leave a larger tip.

If you are unhappy with the food in a restaurant, ask to talk to the manager. The food isn't the waiter's fault, so it is not fair to leave the waiter a smaller tip because of it.
Q: Please show me example sentences with which one is more acceptable in the US talk TO or WITH? What’s the difference? ‘cause I’m tired of arguing with my teacher about that. I insist on talk with . am I right ?.
A: The answer is that there’s essentially NO difference when two people are having a conversation, and both of them are speaking. You can say “Sue is talking to John” or “Sue is talking with John” – they’re the same!

Some people claim that talk to should be used when it’s only one person speaking, and talk with should be used when it’s more of a two-sided discussion.

However, in practice, many native speakers use both interchangeably. Here are some examples:

Can I talk to you for a minute?
Can I talk with you for a minute?

Brian’s over there, talking to Matt.
Brian’s over there, talking with Matt.

I talked to my boss and she said I could take a day off.
I talked with my boss and she said I could take a day off.

It's just a matter of choice! :)
