Friendly Employee

DSCF7964 1 copy
Many lower level service positions in Saudi Arabia are filled by ex-pat workers from other poorer countiries in the world. Most that we have had contact with have been very helpful, friendly and certainly customer service oriented. This photo is of an employee in a local family coffee house. Coffee and tea are very popular drinks. There are even many small drive-through coffee shops.

    It appears to me, this friendly employee is flashing the “crips” hand sign. Maybe I’m wrong…..

    It looks like coffee shops here! I like that friendly smile.

    There’s loads of ex-pat workers here too in coffee shops and the like. This is a hold-over from the big boom that occurred a couple years ago, where the service industry was crying for people but couldn’t find local people. I would agree that many of these guys are a lot friendlier than some of the local staff. This looks like a warm and inviting coffee house, and I’d definitely order a double-double there if I could 🙂

    Nice to know there are some places to shop with friendly people.
