O uso correto do "Masculine" e "Feminine"

MasculineFeminine
                             
  To tip or Not to Tip
Canadians and Americans usually tip in places like restaurants, airports, hotels and hair salons because people who work in the places get low salaries.
A Tip shows that the customer is pleased with the service.
At airports, porters usually get a dollar for each bag. Hotel bellhops usually get a dollar for carrying one or two suitcases. A hotel door attendant or parking valet also gets about a dollar for getting a taxi or for parking a car. Many people also tip hotel maids, especially when they stay in a hotel for several days. They usually leave a dollar a day. The usual tip for the other kinds of service – for example, for taxi drivers, barbers, hairdressers, waiters and waitresses – is between fifteen and twenty percent of the check. The size of the tip depends on how pleased the customers are. In most restaurants, the bill does not include a service charge; however, if the group is large, there 
may be a service charge. There is no tip in cafeterias or fast food restaurants.
