Hello I feel Im in the right site to learen english but my problem its from where I must start and I need to know the map of the way I need some one can lead me because I feel Im wander....thank you.

I don't complain if I had bad service only if it was really bad. I just don't come back to the place and don't give any tips.

If I happen to have a bad service, I just don't leave any tip, because sometimes you just receive bad faces and bad words from the people giving you the bad service, and it's quite inconvenient , mostly if you are somewhere to have a nice time with friends or so.

I thought in all conversation  need a little bit make correction. When you watch next question, answer is there.
