During my school holidays, I worked asa part-time banquet server.
One time, I saw this nice looking ladyseated at a table that my colleague was serving. She looked pretty and elegantso I paid attention to her。
To my horror, she said this to mycolleague in a very rude way.
“Excuse me. Can you see that mybag is expensive? Can you get me a baggage holder before you start to servefood? Make sure to cover my bag. If you spill food on my bag, do you think youcan afford to pay for it?”
I was shocked. My colleague servingthat table was shocked too. He placed the food on the table and informed thelady that he would go get the baggage holder immediately. Thankfully, ourmanager was nearby and witnessed everything.
Later on, we realised that it was aHermes bag. My manager told us privately that there are more guests like thatnowadays. He told us that when this happen, always inform the manager on dutyso that the manager can be on standby for damage control. You know, howsometimes guest think that we cannot make decision and they demand to speak tothe manager.
Does carrying an expensive bag allowher to treat service staff like dogs? So what if she has money. She was totallyrude and ungracious tho.
We always talk about Foreign Talentsbeing rude and uncouth. But people like that lady give Singaporeans a bad nametoo.
