I was thinking today about another of the small differences in restaurants here.
In the U.S. of A. when you eat at a restaurant, sometimes before you are even finished with your meal your waiter/waitress brings you the bill. They want to move people through as fast as possible so as to make as many tips as possible.
In Israel, you have to ask for the bill. You could literally sit there for hours and they would not bring you the bill. You absolutely have to ask for the bill.....every time! You would think with it being this way that they would have trouble with people walking out without paying. This is not the case. Israel doesn't really have a lot of crime like that. It's actually refreshing.
Anyway, there's another small thing I thought you might get a kick out of.
