1- Do you think a Kuwaiti waiter or waitress would be good at their job?

2- Would you be more/less comfortable giving orders to a Kuwaiti waiter?

3- Would the Kuwaiti factor make any difference when it comes to tipping?

4- How do you feel about working as waiter? (assuming the paying is good)

5- Do you know any Kuwaiti waiters?

    I once was a waiter 😀 in that cool coffee house in Manhattan for 3 weeks, it was cool. bel3aks being a waiter is such a fun job tara, funky place, good music, good coffee or food, beautiful people and you got to talk n smile to beautiful girls without being judged. I wish someday we kuwaiti people get down to earth n start working like real people

    1- It doesn’t matter if your Kuwaiti or not it depends mostly on the personality of the person and how he/she was raised. Also differentiating by classes ya3ni its RARE to see someone who’s family has so much wealth and working as a waiter.

    2- I personally will be more comfortable if they don’t mess up my order, so I don’t really care much about nationality than what I expect from their services. But sometimes it might be better especially to specify your order in your own language.

    3- I will NOT tip a Kuwaiti person that is:
    a) It depends on the definition of “tip” as ekrameyia or salary.

    Note:If you have no clue how tipping started go read some history books.

    The real question is how much would you pay for a tip if it was a Kuwaiti person serving you? Specify a minimum amount or percentage? Also the way the tip is paid will make a difference for example cash or included in receipt. It also depends if your paying paper bills or coins.

    4- Working is always good to me. It doesn’t matter if I work as a waiter or a bartender serving leban to some old geezers 😛

    5- Yes I know few but not in Kuwait

    مساء الخير

    عندي ملاحظة مهمة وانا وايد ملاحظها على ربعنا الكويتيين ومنهم بعض الاخوة الافاضل المعلقين باستثناء الاخ ابن المضف :

    اذا كانت الشغلة عندكم عادية ليش ما اشتغلتو فيها ؟؟ وما افتكر انكم ما راح تلاقون مكان محتاج جرسونات !

    احنا دايما نحب نشوف الشي بس ما نحب نسوي مثله ….هذي طبيعتنا
    اما الاخ الفاضل ابن المضف عندي له تساؤل :

    انت ولد المضف وصاحبك ولد العيسى …ليش تشتغلون جرسونات وانتو ماشالله عيال خير ؟؟
    الا اذا نفس ما ذكر احد المعلقين انه خوش طريقة للتعرف والضحك مع البنات وهذا شي ملاحظ تلقى البنت تكركر مع الجرسون بس تعصب اذا احد قالها لو سمحتي طريج !

    او انك تشتغل مع مشروع مثل لوياك او غيره وبالنهاية السالفة تسلية مو عمل حقيقي

    انا تعرضت لمثالين حقيقيين بحياتي :
    1- انا اشتغلت مو جرسون ..اشتغلت باخذ الطلبات من السيارات لمطعم صديقي بعد تعرض عماله من جنسية عربية للمضايقة من عمال مطعم قريب …فكانت السالفة فزعة وحماية لاستثمار صاحبي لكن كانت تجربة مؤسفة
    2- بنت كويتية اشتغلت بمطعم مكدونالد في الضاحية وتمت هناك لمدة اكثر من 8 اشهر اذا ماني غلطان واللي طلعها تعليقات الكويتيين عليها

    اسف للاطالة

    ردا على اخونا بو صالح

    طبعا لمه نقول عادي نشتغل جرسون اهو مجرد رأي , لكن كوني متعلم اتصور انه فيه اماكن أفضل للعمل. الشي الثاني انه طبيعه العمل الي انا أسعي اليها ما تكون في صله مباشره مع الزباين, فأذا انت تبي تشتغل جرسون مفروض يكون عندك عده مؤهلات منها التعامل و اهم شي الصبر لنه تدري ماشالله دريتنا فيها ناس ما تعرف الادب ولا اخلاق و يعاملونك كأنك خادم , بس طبعا هل مؤهلات غير مؤخوذه بالأعتبار. الشي الثالث انه المطاعم ما تعطيك المعاش الي يرضيك اييبلك عامل من بره ارخص. و فيه بعد شي هل انك تحب تشتغل في مكان كله ريحه زيت و طباخ؟ وهل تحب لمه تخدم ناس يناديك واحد ويمد ايده يعطيك او يحط بجيبك ميتين فلس خرده؟ . اهي الوضيفه مو عيب بس مدام فيه شي افضل و له مستقبل ليش اتركه. حتى اب امريكا الطلبه الي يشتغلون في المطاعم علشان ايمعون فلوس الكتب و الدراسه تلقاهم مو حابين الوضيفه لأنه الشكوه عليهم فيها طرده و تلقى الغلطه من الطباخ بس مثل ما يقولون لازم يقع الأصبع على احد بتحمل المسؤوليه, اول ما يشوفون فرصه مكان ثاني على طول يغيرون, و لو كان اهاليهم يدفعولهم المبالغ كلها لما شفت احد منهم يشتغل. بس لو بنيي على انه هل فيه كويتيين يشتغلون مهنه جرسون انا اقول فيه شي مشابه والي اهو مضيف جوي. بس مثل ما تفضلت انه مافيه تشجيع يعني لو بنت تشتغل بالمطعم تلقى الواحد ما يروح علشان ياكل لا يفكر تفكير مراهق شلون اظبطها . ايام الأزمه كان الكويتي يسوي كل شي حتى صار وانتوا بكرامه زبال بس طبعا بدون راتب لأنه كان امر تطوعي لانه ماكو احد يقوم بهل عمل. اذا الواحد يحب يصير جرسون فأنا اشوف انه المطاعم السريعه اسوء اماكن لنه يتيمعون عليك من كل الاصناف البشريه اما المطاعم في الفنادق و الاماكن الراقيه هذي فيها نسبه قليله من الهمج والله العالم اذا زادوا الحين. انواع الهمج تحصلهم بالمستشفيات اغلب الاحيان, واتشوف لوحه شكبرها جدام الباب مكتوب عليها “الرجاء عدم طرق الباب” تلقاه يطرق و يدرعم ههههه علشان جذي نص المستشفيات والوزارات بيبانها مقفله

    1. It does depend on the person bas yeah why not.

    2. I would be indifferent it doesnt make a difference to me, maybe just the communication would be easier.

    3. Madry wala, what do you mean ya3ni tip them more or what? But both ways my tip depends on the service i received.

    4. Hmmm no not really. I KIND Of worked at a register and served food bas not like a waitress :p

    Thanks all for contributing to this post. I Appreciate every single comment.

    My answers:

    1- Yes I think most would, I’ve already noticed how good they’re in qualitynet’s customer service, NBK’s and in many places, be it by phone or in person. most Kuwaitis are very friendly and compitent. I think they’ll do great, most of them.

    2- Less comfortable, since i can’t get really get angry at them for messing up my order.

    3- Yes. I’d tip more than the usual if I liked their service. Nothing wrong with supporting my countries men and women.

    4- I’d love to But I know I won’t.

    5- After this post, yeah I know.

    There is not shame in working as a waiter in a restaurant. its a job, and if it pays well and the people are happy working as waiters, then good of them.

    Bosale7 That was a bit judgmental but I understand where you’re coming from “Kuwaiti guys working as waiters? it’s got to be more than serving food to unknown people that made them want the job.” Thats how we think, unfortunately. But I really disagree with you about “the alessa and almudhaf being from wealthy families that they don’t need the job and they’re using it for fun.” it doesn’t matter who you are and whom are your family. almost every Kuwaiti got a degree that will enable them to work in a good paying job, but its their lives and they decide the field of work to be in.

    DVLz history books to learn about the origins of tipping? I’d rather make another post instead and let you give me an idea, afterall if you have the knowledge why flaunt it but not share it? 😛

    Almodaf I admire the way you think and act and reply on the comments’ section.

    My friends and I worked at the cafe in Salhiya, the one in front of Starbucks. The Job was through LoYAC. a few of us were waiters/waitresses and a few worked in the kitchen (with the chef, washing dishes, etc.) It wasn’t awkward at all. At first we were nervous, but then we realized how much fun it was, and we took it seriously, not as a joke.

    I remeber there used to be a Kuwaiti lady working in Starbucks Adaliyah a few years ago, I don’t know if she’s still there. She seemed really cool and confident about her job.
