Well I am American and I still don’t know what you mean by “it doesn’t work that way.” The change is your tip. That’s exactly how the customer meant for it to work.

I'm not American so I think tipping is ridiculous but couldn't you just use the change as your tip? like pretend you have it back to him and then he gave you it as a tip if you have to

I'm pretty sure the reason they don't tip outside of America is there's either auto gratuity (higher food price but part goes to the waiter) or just a higher hourly pay. But the idea of tipping is to make sure you get good service cause you control how much they get paid.

I am American. Does it not work that way? Honest question.

Occasionally I'll do something like go to Starbucks, order a single drink, pay with a 20, and say to keep it.

The only way I can make sense of this would be if the change was absurdly small for a tip. E.g., if the tab was $14.95 and he gave you $15 and told you to keep the change, that would be essentially no tip at all. If that's what happened, you might get more sympathy by mentioning that the change was only five cents.

When someone says keep the change, they're trying to save you the effort of getting the money and bringing it to them. They're basically saying put it in your pocket or log it(however your restaurant tracks cash tips) at the register instead of bringing it back to them, just so they can give it right back to you. Don't see how that doesn't work.
