Indeed a double standard, Americans are expected to tip more.
I also think that 5% is a good tip. But always tipping 5% means that overpriced restaurants get a higher tip than underpriced restaurants so I try to take that into account too.
Maybe Mark Zuckerberg didn't tip because he wasn't pleased about something? We don't know.

5I think he didn't tip because he had read that in Europe you generally don't tip. But after seeing that the waiter turned over all of the information to the press, I'm certainly glad he didn't tip.
For what it's worth, I actually emailed the restaurant and essentially said I thought they were jerks for revealing private information about a customer. To his credit the owner emailed me back. I'm sure he had lots of other emails! He said he just posted on Facebook that Zuckerburg was there and then the pressed swooped in and interviewed his waiter. I started to write him back and suggest he fire the waiter, but I didn't.
"i agree but it is no my fault. i did only want to show on facebook that he was here. journalist plays on this asking to waiter about the tip."
