Ok, let me rephrase it with some extra smileysJayCee wrote:Really??? I must have missed that!ecureilx wrote: Local staff are more responsive and make you feel home ..
Generally I found local staff on the ball, than compared to some 'expat' staff - either it was a case of the girl feeling that the guys are trying to pick them up - or when you smile at a waitress, automatically another male staff from the said girls' country starts to aggressively loiter around you - till you feel like 'damn, what was that' ..
or - the 'expat' staff decides to start chit-chat till - when you have been doing the same job in your previous life - feel whether the staff is so happy to talk to you that she is neglecting the other customers (not that I minded that anyway .. but .. )
And too often, I had to repeat that when I want Scotch - I want Scotch, not Jim Beam or Jack Daniel or Wild Turkey, because such drink is hour pour or there is a promo .. and is a good replacement for Scotch .. ah - well, as they say, I am not one of those who vote with the wallet, as, on a rainy day - ANYTHING WILL DO But no sir, not gonna get a membership in Harry's or intend to get their stored-value card
